What We've Been Up To...

What do you do when it's 100o outside? My children drink hot chocolate.

Apparently it's never too warm for marshmallows.

We also dress up like pirates and go get free donuts. 

What I did not realize is that we would get a dozen donuts for each pirate. We were three. That means...

36 donuts. Which is entirely too many for one family of five to have in the house at one time. 

We put a good dent in them, but didn't come anywhere near eating all of them. 


A great deal of painting has occurred in this house as well. We even made egg yolk paint (much like Giotto used 700 years ago) (probably not very much though, as he was grinding up insects to mix with his eggs, while we used chalk). It was fun for them. (A little stressful for you know me? Raw eggs! Ack!)

I need to figure out how to cover their paintings (read: protect myself and others from egg germs). 

I'm sure I need to lighten up. But hey! I walk around in public looking like Jack Sparrow, not even on October 31st. That counts, doesn't it?!

We made a VERY big dent in our 3 dozen, and my hips can prove it.

You even have the mustache of Jack Sparrow! Love you, Diddy

Didn't the paint stink? The smell of raw or dried up raw eggs makes me heave:)
