One evening when Ben was out of town, I made peach pancakes with the peaches we picked (using a recipe from the Smitten Kitchen cookbook) and they were amazing. Unfortunately my kids were not fans and I was forced to eat them all myself.
After cleaning up dinner I discovered that our hallway had been turned into ponyville, complete with labels for each area (classic Amelia). The girls had spent a lot of time setting it up and did not want to clean it up. It was a bit of an obstacle to get around, blocking entrance to every room.
The girls were saying goodnight to Simon and he wouldn't stop smiling at them. They kept saying "how can we possibly leave him when he keeps smiling?"
