How to tame your dragon (and two little monkeys)

The kids have been in a bouncing-off-the-walls-and-swinging-from-the-chandelier kind of mood since Christmas. Awesome. I’ve been trying to keep them busy with lots of activities, but goodness they never seem to wear down!

[at least their beds can catch a break now since we have an indoor trampoline]

Little Man loves to bake, so we’ve been going on all kinds of culinary adventures this week. Tonight we attempted to make dragon bread….

You can find the recipe HERE. We used bluberries for the eyes and I guess we created a sad dragon since he was crying by the time we took him out of the oven. It didn’t turn out as lovely as I had hoped, but it was delicious nevertheless! The recipe is a honey wheat bread and it was oh so yummy.

After we slayed the dragon and drowned him in butter, the night kind of went downhill. Even after a rough evening, these two know how to make me smile. They turned all giggly and goofy after story time tonight, and they insisted on sleeping together in the same bed. Precious moments that make you forget the tough times…..love them.
