Little Things

Today, Elizabeth and I were making brownies and I said “okay, let’s put them in the oven now and cook them!”  Elizabeth furrowed her forehead and then said “okay, but cook them warm, NOT hot.”

I made macaroni and cheese for lunch today (from a box, but the Annie’s White Cheddar kind, they taste much better to me as a grown-up) and added shredded smoked Gouda.  I highly recommend this.

Matt told me a few days ago “you know, the house has really been looking nice lately.”  I gave him a huge hug for noticing.

Matt and I have started pre-buying some of the little cars from the Cars 2 movie.  Cars 2 is going to be Elizabeth’s first in-theater movie and we suspect that she will love it as much as she loved the original Cars.  (Which was a lot.)  Which means we will end up searching for her favorite characters made in miniature, and they will all be sold out.  So this time, as the toys just started being released, we’ve been trying to guess which ones she will become obsessed with and getting them now.  (And then storing them, unwrapped, with the receipt in the bag, in case we are wrong about which ones we think she’ll like.)  Does anyone have a Mini for sale by the way?  She’s in the original Cars movie for less than a minute and is Elizabeth’s favorite character.

Brownies are done!
