Favorite Picture: I wasn’t entirely sure the school would be doing anything for Valentine’s day, since the 14th isn’t until Sunday and our kids start winter break today. So we put holiday cards off. We finally got confirmation that the class would have a party, so we made these beauts out of construction paper last night.
Look at what a disaster this kid is. No real injuries as she says “I yike banjages on my mouth.”
I have this theory that no one ever buys Dum Dums. The one’s you get at Halloween, in goodie bags, on Valentine’s day, etc have just been recirculated. I mean, I can’t be the only one who always rehomes these, can I?
Favorite Quote: The other night when I walked in the door from work, Rob gave me a kiss, you know, as people do. James, having witnessed this horrendous display of disgustingness, covered his eyes and acted repulsed. “Ewwww! Dad and mom kissed!” he announced to Mariyah (who didn’t care that much on account of the fact that “mom and dad kiss everyday”). “You know, in a couple more years you may change your mind about kissing girls. You might even have a girlfriend and want to hold hands and stuff.” I said to him. He looked at me, with a completely straight face and said “That is never going to happen. Not even in college mom.”
Not even in college folks. Consider this kid off the market for life.
Favorite Deal: My winter boots are totally fried. I’m talking James level destruction. The sole is detaching, which incidentally causes them to pack snow in the gap between the boot itself and the sole of the shoe. Needless to say, they were a tad ineffective during Jonah (I did the old plastic bag trick, but my feet were still pretty cold on account of all the snow that made its way inside my boots). Earlier this week I noticed my favorite boots were on sale at Sorel. If your toes are also feeling the chill, I can’t recommend these boots highly enough.
Favorite Recipe: I know I’ve mentioned this recipe before but it is seriously so good, that I thought it was worth mentioning again. Nearly everytime we have company I make these Oreo Truffles, and they are such a hit. Plus you wouldn’t believe how simple the recipe is. I sometimes (every time) have issues with the double boiler, so my chocolate is often a little bumpier than the photo, but people never seem to mind a bit.
Have Friday folks! Countdown to Fuller House: 14 days.
