Time for some make-up posting! I've neglected some little tidbits that I have wanted to share but just haven't gotten to quite yet. So - the kids have a bowl of air-popped popcorn and a Charlie & Lola cd from the library, and I have some stolen moments.
Last weekend, the kids saw my bag of lemons in the fridge and begged to make some lemonade. So - we did.
Did you see those pretty little fingernails! and the yummy little chubby arms? and they're so serious! I love it.

When Life Gives You Milk:
I had just a 1/2 quart of milk left and was going to TJoe's, so of course picked up a gallon. Immediately when we got home, my beautiful, wonderful, talented, generous, laughter-ful neighbor Sarah flagged me down and asked if we needed any milk. Perfect timing? (Sarah has a coffee cart and often has leftover milk, which she doesn't drink, so we reap the benefits!) After a quick search on line, I settled on this recipe for REAL chocolate pudding. I poured the still-warm comfort-in-a-bowl into my 4 new birthday cups (that's the wrong word! I can't think of the right word...), and still had some left in the pan. The rest went in to pyrex prep bowls. I took two over to Sarah's house and her daughter M and her friend were diligently working on the coolest project at their giant sprawl of a table. M's whole face lit up at the sight of the pudding! "Snack time!" I'm hoping to get a couple pix of their project... the coolest hats EVER. Much cooler than this princess topper. More on that later, I hope!
