That's what Aunts are for.

The other day when Julie was leaving for work, Maggie asked if she could go with her. Julie told her she WISHED she could go with her. Maggie kept repeating "you going to work?" Julie told her she had to go make pizzas. "You go make pizzas?" "I want to go work with you." Then Julie sadly walked away, sans Maggie. But, in her head she hatched a plan. She would bring home the goods to make pizzas with the little princess. Since she was watching the kids for the evening, they made an night of it. And I must admit, Maggies first pizza making, cooking in the kitchen experience was adorable and a huge success.

First she spread the sauce, and I do mean, SHE spread the sauce, all of it, all by herself! Such genius in the kitchen.

She is her mothers daughter...must taste as you cook. She ate herself lots of peperonis.

She very thoughtfully placed each pepperoni, I like to call her our "pizza artiste."

Next came the sausage, which were randomly bunched, but placed none the less.

Don't mind her totally crazy look, she really did have a grand time and enjoyed herself immensely. And rest assured the finished product was delicious!
We're so grateful to have Auntie Julie living with us. She is such a good Aunt and loves these kids like her own. And who else would have the patience to make pizza with a 2 year old? Thanks Julie, we sure love you!
Pepperoni and pizzaz,

Do you know how good it is to start your AM with a big old cup o' Allyson? No really, I felt like I knew you again. :)

It was sooooo much fun making pizzas with my little "Nakie" chef. What a blast we had. Can't wait till it's "Pepparkaukar" time. :)

Very fun. I don't have quite enough patience as Julie...she could come make pizzas with my kids anytime!
