Saturday Snapshot: Brewmistress

One of the very first "chores" we asked of Darren and Sarah was to "help Mommy count the scoops." Each morning from their high chair perches they'd chirp in unison, "One! Two! Three! Four! Five! Six! Seven! Eight!" as I doled the spoonfuls into the coffee filter.

This morning as we were still lazing in the bed, Double Daddy jokingly heckled Sarah, "We need to teach you how to make coffee!"

No more incentive was needed!

How's your weekend looking---or sounding---so far?

Post a picture...or two, or three...and share a peek!

Please help me get our story out:

Mom of Triplets and cancer. We have pretty much lived in seclusion the past year so we only know a handful of people.

NICE!! And good to know that our daily routine of having the kids help us count out scoops is going to have a BIG payout in the not-too-distant future ;)
