I have a sous chef

Keller has been annoyed. There are loud noises from the hardwood floor work in the house, the backyard is muddy (wait, she doesn't care about that! - until it's bath time), the house stinks with fresh paint, dad is ignoring her and playing with power tools, and mom is ignoring her and experimenting with Christmas delectables in the kitchen. But it's not that we're trying to ignore her. It's just how it is right now. We play, go to the dog park, talk, and then try to get her tired enough so we can do work.

She was, however, highly interested in being my sous chef this weekend as we madly baked to accomplish Christmas cookies. She is a faithful taste tester, and helped Dave take on the quality control responsibility. Which, in the end, makes her not annoyed anymore.
