I made cinnamon rolls last night.
I told the girls they weren’t getting any cinnamon rolls until they’re dinner was gone. They still didn’t finish their food so this morning first thing Brooklyn said to me was, “can I finish my dinner and get a cinnamon roll?!”
(first thing in the morning my table’s filthy, the girls are undressed and their hair is crazy)
I usually don’t care if they finish all their meal and will let them have something else if I’ve made it, but last night Brooklyn was being purposefully ornery about dinner because she wanted the rolls. She usually loves what we ate:
While they took a bazillion years to finish their food, I folded laundry.
A week’s worth of it.
When I came back their plates were empty so I heated up some yumminess..
I don’t have a bread machine and they still turned out awesome.
If you don’t have a bread machine either, skip step 1 and instead:
mix everything in a big bowl, knead for 5-10 minutes and let rise for one hour.
Then continue on to steps 2-4
The kids loved them, of course.
And they are dressed and the table is cleaned!
Payson got a piece of one, too. I should mention I lucked out with Payson- he’s not at all picky about food and I’m grateful of that every single mealtime!
I sit Payson on the counter while I put lotion on him.
Brooklyn helped me take these pictures by holding onto him so he wouldn’t fall.
He couldn’t resist grabbing an onion. I grabbed it from him right after I snapped this. Otherwise I’m positive he’d have taken a bite.
I wanted to post these pictures I took a few days ago. Allan’s been spending his evenings painting.
