We Want Our Warm Weather Back!

The weather was cool and rainy all day Sunday, so the girls were pretty much stuck inside all day which was fine since Mallory wasn't feeling well. She didn't eat a thing until lunch and seemed to feel better after that. I'm sure the nice long nap the girls and I took after lunch helped. A nap on a rainy Sunday afternoon ~ is there anything better?
Lunch on Sunday ~ the perfect grilled cheese. For almost 38 years {OK, not quite that long} I've been trying to spread butter on the bread before grilling the sandwich which tears the bread  if you're using cold, real butter, and I can never get the butter evenly spread across the entire surface. Sunday I put the butter in the pan to melt then but the sandwich in the pan ~ perfection!

Mommy gets to eat the crust!
We also made our favorite peanut butter dip Sunday. The girls have finally decided they like peanut butter which is great because Walter and I eat a lot of peanut butter. I don't really follow a recipe, but it's basically 2 parts peanut butter to 2 parts yogurt to one part honey. Yummy with green apple slices!
On a rainy Sunday afternoon, this is what our living room floor looked like. If you can"t tell {ha, ha}, you'd be looking at Equestria, specifically Ponyville and Canterlot Castle. We watch way too much My Little Pony!
 We also eat a lot of grapes around here, so one of the girls' "jobs" has become rinsing them off.
The rain brought much cooler temps for Monday and today and now both Anna Claire and Mallory have terrible coughs. We want our warm weather back!
