I love the things kids say, especially during prayer. Last night Jibbity was saying it, and after blessing her friend at school to be good instead of naughty, and asking to let us please have good dreams instead of bad, she finished off with a..."and please bless me that I can look cute in my pictures tomorrow". Oh how this 5 year old makes me laugh!! The kids have picture day today, and she is very concerned with what she is going to wear. She says she has to look "adorable".

Sunday afternoons I sometimes feel the desire to bake, nothing fancy mind you, but something Hunter Dan can enjoy during the week, as well as the kiddos. I thought it was time Bug tried his hand at a cake(from the box), and frosting(from scratch). He did awesome, and was soo proud of himself.
He says he can even make his own Birthday cake. It
was cute to see the sense of accomplishment on his face, especially when he tasted it after dinner. As if that weren't enough he then helped me make yummy marshmallow popcorn.
Here's the recipe...super easy and sooo yummy.
CANDY CANE POPCORN
4 quarts popcorn
3 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup margarine
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla
Pop corn, add marshmallows, nuts, gumdrops, m&m's or whatever.(my Mom always makes this at Christmas time for neighbors, and adds cashews and gumdrops. She also shapes it into a candy cane or wreath.) Melt margarine in heavy sauce pan, add sugar, and corn syrup. Bring to boil...stir and simmer for 3 minutes. Add vanilla, mix well, pour over popcorn.
We only added the marshmallows, and it's almost gone now. YUMMY!!!
Have a FaNtAsTiC Tuesday!!!
