Proud Mommy Moments: Criss, Cross, Applesauce!

Last Friday-Saturday, the boys all went to do some male bonding at my parents' cabin and so us girls got to have a sleepover.
Saturday morning, we decided to make applesauce. My parents have a huge apple tree and they get way too many apples to just eat so my mom usually makes bottles of applesauce to use throughout the year.
After making a couple of batches, we decided to take a break and eat some of our applesauce.
Neither of my kids have ever liked applesauce. They both love apples so I'm guessing it's a texture thing.
 But Petey wanted to give it a try with tons of sprinkles in it. She was sure that would make it taste better.
 She was still pretty happy before she took the first bite...
 ...and then her smile faded.
But my girl made me proud and kept on eating. She finished about half of it, which was good enough for me.
 And in the end, she was all smiles.
She even went out and helped Grandma pick vegetables out of the garden. And not only did she pick them, she washed them all so she could take them to her Nana and Papa later that day. Seriously, this girl is always thinking of others. I am so grateful for her example to me of how to give service with a huge smile. She makes me proud of her every day.

And that's how Suze sees it.

Oh her eyes get me every time! And good for her for trying and for eating half of it-- my kids often won't even try things they are worried about.
Sounds like a very fun time.
Thanks for linking up!
