"Do you know what I would like for lunch?"
No, "what would you like?"
"Let's make toast with an egg in the center, like my dad taught me to make."

I was quite impressed that his dad had taught him this skill.
I pulled out my tin heart cookie cutters and two slices of frozen bread.
Carefully and slowly, his little hands pushed the cookie cutter.
Immediately, after completeing the job, he asked if he could eat the two cut out hearts?
I wondered if his dad taught him that too?

We put the eggs in a skillet and broke an egg into the center of each heart.
We(I) sprinkled some salt lightly on the bread and eggs and he asked to sprinkle the black pepper:)
We covered the skillet with a lid and waited until it was done.
I placed the finished creation on a plate and added a red candy heart.
He looked at it and asked me, "MawMaw, does that mean you love me?"  I quickly affirmed his sweet question.

Moments like these, will not last for too long.  I treasure them all in my heart.

"It's the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary."  ~Paulo Coelho

I know that I showed you the heart cookies my neice makes, but I wanted to share a picture of a plate of cookies that her mother brought to church on Sunday.
What a masterpiece!

One of the highlights of my "Super Bowl Sunday".
More beautiful in my mind than any of the half time features of the game.

Yes, it is the simple things in this life, that really matter.

Thanks for stopping by.

Those cookies are a real work of 'he-art'!

What a fun lunch his dad taught him to make!

So true...it is those simple things in life...the moments shared and the sunsets at night...that make life extraordinary.

I agree that is impressive that his daddy showed him how to make the egg in the toast....so good to have fathers cooking with the children. Your niece certainly is very talented and I enjoy seeing those beautiful cookies!
