Dah-da-da-dah. (Hammer time!) Except it's picture time!! Let's start with today, when I attempted to make tortillas. Our cook, Cande, taught me once before I left Mexico. I'm determined to learn this. Today was a practice session. The girls joined me and took some pictures as well.
The shapes were much better this time. As in - not squares or mickey mouse heads or parallelograms. Instead, a lot of them were circles - win! Unfortunately, the consistency of the dough was wrong, and they didn't taste good - fail! Maybe next time. The girls, though, had a lot of fun playing with the dough.
Christmas morning - before:
I just tried it on for Hannah, and said "Hey Hannah, do you like my new vest?" Do you know what she did? She laughed. She laughed hysterically. She laughed so much that she moved across the room. She continued laughing while I protested that she wasn't being very nice. My mom whispered to her that she might want to tell me that she did like it. And my mom said "Isn't it darling?" and Hannah responded with a quizzical look. So apparently this is not appreciated by 7 year olds. But I like it anyway.
