Just Some Fun
The other day I tried out a new cookie recipe: Apple Hermits. They were pretty good and different from the normal chocolate chip, or pumpkin chocolate chip, or oatmeal chocolate chip that we typically do. Chloe woke up from her nap as I was finishing the cookies. Etta refused to lick the bowl (is she crazy?) but her sister was more than happy to spend the next thirty minutes getting out as much cookie dough as possible.

Like she could get any this way
Etta stood by watching her sister and pointing out spots with more dough
She's a little girl! Sometimes the realization hits me and makes my heart ache at how fast they grow.
Etta's favorite book right now: an Anpanman Food Book
You are thinking, what the heck is Anpanman? He's a famous cartoon character here. He's everywhere, TV, music, toys, clothes, and anything else that has an association with kids. Now that she goes to a Japanese preschool she she's him and hears songs about him. She still can't say Anpanman, it comes out more like Hanpanhanpanman....seriously. She's learning a little bit of the Japanese 'alphabet' with this book and some new Japanese words.
