Gracie loves anything she can dress up for. She got aprons out for everyone.
Finding ingredients, they'd both climb in if they could.
Chef Maddie and Teddy, the bear she has become completely attached to.
She took a break from cooking to comb his hair.
Smelling the rosemary...Matthew did a great job teaching her about each part of the meal.
Rinsing, mixing, tasting...these girls loved it!
He even looks the part!
Matthew said I must have enjoyed relaxing and watching...
but contrary to what this picture looks like I did help out.
Banished from the kitchen for sneaking Otter Pops...
Gracie said that pretend cooking was a lot faster and she was too hungry to wait.
We had to set a plate out for Gracie's "pets"...throughout dinner she leaned over to help them eat.
The lion loved the potatoes.
Matthew even took care of dessert. Individual ice creams, the girls were thrilled.
Happily taking over dish duty after our incredible dinner!
