I thought it was time I try to make kale chips. They certainly seemed easy enough.
Wash kale. Dry. Toss with a light coating of olive oil and salt. Bake for 10 minutes.
I could do that.
I really didn't know what to think but I had heard people rant and rave about them. I even heard someone crave them. I was optimistic.
They were light. They definitely could be described as melting in your mouth. But delicious?
I'm still not sure.
Caleb came up to me a few minutes ago and with all seriousness asked me, "So Mom, you know how I am trying to eat healthier? Well can I pack the rest of the kale chips in my lunch tomorrow?"
For an instant, I was really excited. I believed him.
But he was just joking.
Galina helped with dinner tonight. We had baked potatoes with all kinds of toppings including this smoked sausage fried up. The kids enjoy it every time.
Dennis is not too happy in this picture. He was upset that William was not letting him use some of the legos.
Can you say-- bedtime?
Thankfully they worked it out.
It never fails that the kids gravitate to our room around bedtime. They enjoy hanging out.
Check out this boy's smile. He is our precious Nolan who is set to have surgery on his cleft palate first thing in the morning. As I scrubbed him up in the tub he hummed a pretty song. Like always-- singing and trying his best to talk. That is what is so exciting about tomorrow. Finally he will have a chance to talk-- to tell us what he has been trying to tell us for the last three months.
Sleep tight my big boy! Tomorrow is your big day!
