Final day of housewife training: cooking and a field trip!

Although we have lots of chores to do tomorrow to prepare for this weekend, I'm declaring today the final day of our housewife training because I won't have time to take pics tomorrow. :) Also, I didn't take any pics today of our typical cleaning routine (vacuuming, picking up toys and organizing dress up clothes) but here are a few shots of the girls cooking and going on a "field trip" with me.
First chore for Ella - helping mommy make cinnamon streusel muffins for breakfast.
Eden had a rough night of coughing so she slept pretty late this morning. I must admit that it was kind of nice to only instruct one!
A little after 11am we left Baby David at home with daddy and headed out to Sienna Salon & Spa where my favorite wax lady in all of the world (Patricia Gebing) showed my girls the importance of eyebrow maintenance! :) Although not a typical house chore, it is important to look good for our man!! On that note, if you're ever looking for an awesome massage, facial or waxing....Patricia is the woman to go to! PROMISE!
When we got home Eden helped me make a Pinterest recipe for soft pretzel bites for Auntie Ashley. I'd post a picture of the final product but they in no way turned out like the picture on Pinterest. Sigh....

It's been a challenging, but extremely productive week of housewife training with the girls. I appreciate ALL of the positive feedback and words of encouragement because it wasn't easy. I made the decision to turn off the TV (in the daytime), turn on worship music and let the girls help me with any chore that needed to be done. I started to get discouraged because we had a few tantrums and meltdowns along the way, but my Aunt Elizabeth made a comment last night that really made me feel good about not giving up. She said that most women don't take the time to teach their kids how to cook and clean because it's a whole lot easier to just let them watch TV while you do it. SOOOOO true!!! However, my girls have asked me every single night what chores they would GET to do the next morning so I know I made the right decision. It won't be long before we have fights over who HAS to do the chores! :)
