Blessed mother

Simeon has some really great traits, including endurance, leadership, persistence and a compassionate heart. He is not so well known for self-control, tidiness, diligence or patience. Here he is making pancakes for me. I guess he got impatient so he dumped the entire bowl of batter in the skillet. Introducing our newest recipe: scrambled pancakes. They weren't too bad, actually.

I feel like such a blessed mother to wake up to a sight like this every morning.......






























and go to sleep after a sight like this every night.

This cracks me up because a girl I am living with next year said she would cook pancakes but they would have to be scrambled. I was confused until she explained she didn't know how to flip them. AND NOW THERE IS A BLOG ABOUT IT!

One more thing Charissa,
Did you have your camera on a tripod? It is beautiful lighting and there seems to be no flash.
Inquiring minds!!! LOL

Amy,

It was dark in the room with the closet light on and I had the camera on night setting. I don't know too much about my camera yet but I'm playing with it still.
