Chefs perks

Pizzas tonight. The girls (now 3) loved chopping their toppings. Some got eaten on the way #chefsperks which is fantastic as one them had gone off avocado until chopping it for herself. We chopped as the pizza dough rose. They loved helping to mix the ingredients (250g string bread four

Are they identical?

This is something people ask me about my blonde and blue eyed daughter as she stranded next to her brunette brown eyed sister. Looks aside though their personalities are also very different.
