Eight Ways to Stay Busy

This . . .
. . . is me getting ready to run TWO MILES NONSTOP. This is BIG stuff. (No really, I'm in the picture. You can see my shoulder somewhere near those cute, cute girls in pink.)

And this . . .

. . . is a very excited group of girls on a quick and fun little road trip. We were invited to a sneak preview of "Wicked," which will be coming this direction next year. (I'm submitting a group order. Email me if you want in.) The t-shirts say "defy gravity" on the back. Get it?


This here . . .
. . . was decorated by me! BIG thanks to K2 and KW for the awesome fondant class!


This . . .
. . . is NOT a hyperactive hamster going crazy in her food dish, but that's what I thought the sound was as the glass slowly cracked into a bizillion pieces after a weed whacker kicked up a rogue rock.



Now THIS . . .
. . . is just one little example of how much we LOVE our newest neighbors!

One of my favorite conversations since moving day:
My 14yo: Hey mom, does E really need to knock when she comes over? Can't she just walk in?
Me: Well, E, I certainly wouldn't mind, but you might see Mr. B in his underwear.
E: Oh, yeah, um . . .
Me: You know, it would teach him a good lesson, but it would be at your expense.
E: Yeah. No. I'm good.

And just so you know, if coming home late at night and finding this . . .
. . . waiting for you doesn't melt your heart into a puddle, I don't know what will.

And finally, this . . .
. . . was the kids' April 1st after-school snack. (Caramel/Tootsie roll bacon, white chocolate/reeces pieces eggs, and frosting/whopper/jam/cinnamon roll spaghetti.) (April Fools! You're headed for a diabetic coma!) I promise the "spaghetti sauce" looked much more like strawberry jam in real life, and much less like a blood clot. Gross.

Awesome, AWESOME cake! Virtual butt patt for the awesome job you did! This post is hilarious. I cannot believe that happened to your window, though! So it never broke apart? Just spider webbed in every direction?

Hee hee! Virtual butt patt!!

I forgot to mention that the bow on the cake was the expert work of K2 (does it bother you that you're K2, cuz I can switch to you K1, since K1 never reads blogs anyway!). And that I got the April Fool's ideas from familyfun.com.

The glass held for a whole day. We did finally use a broom handle to break it all out, though, so it wouldn't shower down on a kid who forgot to shut the door softly. (Seemed inevitable.)
