such a cutie!
I made a pumpkin pie yesterday as a test run for the real deal on Thursday. I told Caleb that he could have a piece if he ate a good dinner (I told him the same thing at lunch, but that resulted in nothing but a bunch of food being thrown and lots of tears---needless to say, no pie!) He loves pumpkin pie and was very excited about the prospect!
While I was getting dinner together, he found another can of pumpkin in the pantry and began singing, "Happy Birthday to Me! Hunky Hi!" (translation: Pumpkin Pie!) and holding the can of pumpkin out in front of him like a sacred cake or something. Not too sure what that was all about... :)
He did eat a very good dinner...every time he would say "All done" (and not to my standards), I would give him a look and he would say very determinedly, "Hunky Hi!" and take another bite! It was quite funny.
I do hope that the pumpkin pie lived up to his expectations. I thought it was pretty good myself, but he worked awfully hard for it! ;) He especially liked the whipped cream on top!
Side note: Caleb got his first black eye on Friday! Apparently, the 3 kids were running full-force through the house and it was complete mayhem. (Yeah, my sister's got it all under control..JK!) :) Caleb tripped over a toy and landed full-blast into a bench--corner into his eye!! Because of where it hit, only the under part of the eye is bruised. I guess it could be worse. I have tried many times to get pictures of it for posterty, but I can never seem to get him sitting still in the right light. I do have one of him screaming his full-head off because I was trying to keep him seated while I took a couple of close-ups, though! I'll definitely have to post that one!! :)
