Congratulations, Emmett!

Emmett earned second place in his Gung Fu's jump-kick competition! He kicked 5'2" high, which is 10 3/4" more than his height! The competition was between all the students enrolled, not just the ones in his particular class.

Sifu will be awarding him his prize (a martial arts weapon of some sort) in the next week or so.

Overnight Maple French Toast

For Father's Day Breakfast (2010), Emmett and I tried this new recipe from babycenter.com. It turned out beautifully,

Heat 2/3 cup packed brown sugar, 1/2 cup maple syrup, and 1 Tbsp butter over medium heat, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil for one minute. Pour into a 9 x 13 that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

Layer 1-inch slices of bread on top of the mixture.

Combine 4 eggs, 1 + 1/2 cups milk, pinch of salt, and 1 tsp vanilla. Pour over the bread.

Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Uncover and bake at 350 until slices are lightly browned. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.

Here's a picture from Father's Day 2013.
