Chef and Music critic...

Elsa appears to be both master chef and music critic at the ripe old age of 3 as determined by the following observation she made while deftly mixing up pumpkin bread while I added in the ingredients. We had Christmas music playing in the background and a particularly pretty piece had just finished playing when Frosty the Snowman came on. Within seconds Elsa sagely stated as she solemnly stirred without spilling a fleck of flour:

"That is not a beautiful song, Mummy."

"Well - it is a happy song, even if a little noisy, isn't it?" I asked her.

She nodded her agreement as she continued to studiously and carefully mix the flour into the wet ingredients.

That is so sweet. My kids love that song especially how they can sing it at the top of their lungs and make a ton of noise themselves. My eldest likes the classics now as well, I'll catch him humming along to What Child is This? sometimes.

We attempted to make a test batch of dough for ornaments, they puffed up so it needs further work before the final ornaments are made. Jacob got flour all over the kitchen and Allyson poked at least 4 holes in every ornament with the straw.
