The boys love helping me in the kitchen. They happily don their aprons and sit on the counter, taking turns adding ingredients for me. (Side note: Ryan's parents visited us a few weeks ago and Ryan's dad invited the boys to help him make an apple tart--which was delicious. The boys were so excited to help--and Asher ran into the kitchen yelling, "Grandpa, we have APRONS!" I think his apron ownership might cement him as a legitimate kitchen helper.)
After we are finished, the boys usually take turns licking the beater. I do encourage the consumption of raw eggs. Anyway, they are really cute.
