Today is my sister's birthday, so we had family dinner to celebrate over at my parent's house. Mom made one of my sister's favorite meals--homemade meatloaf and mashed potatoes.
Usually, getting Gracelyn and Davis to try something new is a hit or miss proposition. Seriously, there are times I think they will turn into a chicken nugget is they eat too many more.
But tonight they decided to have some meatloaf. Well, let's put it this way--Mommy and Daddy decided they'd try meatloaf.
My mom was telling Gracelyn before the meal that meatloaf was just like meatballs (which Gracelyn apparently likes) only better. As we sat down to pray, Gracelyn asked to bless the food and we all bowed our heads. She started to thank God for the day and for each individual dish. She covered the potatoes, the bread, the green beans and then she said, "and the stuff that is just like meatballs but I can't remember what it is."
In case you didn't already know, I have the cutest niece ever.
Oh and just in case you were curious--Gracelyn thinks meatloaf is just like meatballs only better. For Davis, I think the jury is still out...
