If these photos are any indication, it’ll be good times in our kitchen when it comes to making Christmas dinner this year. Grandson Capt. Adorable, who’ll be 3 next spring, is a whiz at cutting up green peppers — at least, the wooden peppers in his Captain-sized kitchen don’t stand a chance against the skillful wielding of his (not sharp at all) knife. He also cooks a mean pepperoni pizza, thanks to outstanding toymakers Melissa & Doug, who make all sorts of safe and imagination-stirring toys in case you’re still looking for a special something for the little ones on your list. You’ve got to watch the Captain, though — he’s just as liable to cook up a serving of cute little Beanie Babies as he is a yummy wooden vegetable stir-fry. You have been warned.
I just adore his long hair. I think it looks so cute on little guys! Hope you have a Merry Christmas with your family!
He can’t be 3? Man time flies.
Thank you all for the sweet words. I’m dreading that first hair cut! And, Mary, he’s not 3 yet — he’s 2 3/4, but it’s easier to say “almost 3”!
