works for me wednesday - teddy bear biscuits

I've been trying a little bit harder these days to do more with my kids and less on my "to do" list. Trust me, that's extremely hard for a task oriented person like me! But they deserve a little bit more time with their mommy who isn't distracted by other things, so I'm trying!

Today I had such a fun time giggling with my 1-year old son while my daughter napped. He was being such a goofball and it was probably my favorite part of the day! Works for me!

My daughter loves to help me cook, so this is a fun way for me to spend some one on one time with her. Last week, for one of our dinners we had the Impossibly Easy Ham & Swiss Pie. I wanted to make something to go with it and so I looked online to my favorite recipe site, All Recipes, and found the oh so cute Teddy Bear Biscuits. This was perfect! While dinner was in the oven, we went to town making some cute teddy bears to eat with dinner. Mikayla enjoyed this special time with me and I loved it, too! Works for me!

look what I did, mommy!
she was so proud to show daddy what she made

Spending time with my kids and having fun making dinner is what works for me!

Those biscuits are so cute! My kids love helping in the kitchen, too, and I love it because I can be with them and get something done all at the same time. ;-)

How fun! I definitely need to work on doing this more with my kids. My oldest son has suddenly gotten very interested in helping me in the kitchen. I don't want to miss this moment. :)

Those biscuits are super cute. Froggy and I love to cook together as well. We will have to try these next time we have soup night.

Those are so cute! My kids like to watch, but aren't really into helping yet... unless it's taste testing. =) I too need to be better about doing less on my "to do" list and spending more time with them.
