Dogs, Piano & Cookies

Yesterday was a relaxing day around the house. We walked on the horse trail and played in the backyard, made cookies and just hung out. The dogs love to play and Mia is obsessed with the dogs therefore she is often very close to them playing/ wrestling. Max is the white lab and always has to have something in his mouth. He doesn't chew (well most of the time)but he, in true lab form, has to have something in his mouth. This day he decided Mia's Cabbage Patch doll would be the item. Mia followed the dogs in an attempt to get her doll back-- she was successful once her wonderful mom yelled "Max-- drooooooooop!!" Here are some pictures of the wonderful play experience.


Mia loves the piano and actually plays it sweetly. She does not bang on the keys, instead softly plays them and sings along. It is very cute and I and convinced she will be the next piano prodigy and the next Charlotte Church-- or maybe the next American Idol (let a mom dream:)!!!


Here is a video of the next piano prodigy:

Finally we decided to make cookies for no other reason than mommy wanted to eat the dough-- yes i know that is pitiful but I had a hankering!! Anyway, Mia put on her apron and was a "big help"!!! She did enjoy climbing on the counter and playing with dough. Oh yes, the final pictures in the following collage is of Mia doing a no no! She took the bag of cereal out of the cabinet and shook it all over. Here is the end result.
