So funny...

Yesterday, I was babysitting my neighbors, and we all were playing outside. Their cat was stalking something... He leaped! It was-- dum-dum-dum-- a TOAD! After this incident of pouncing, the cat became afraid of the toad; pretty hard left turn if you ask me. After we had sufficiently scared of that poor cat, they decided to play Toad Olympics... that poor toad. It managed to finally get away somehow, and it is alive... but it was very funny watching those kids with that toad. So adorable!

4th of July Recipes

I am really excited for this afternoon! The parties and fireworks--my whole town gathers together to share fireworks at the end of the day. But before that, there are the million parties that you get invited to! I personally only go to one, because by process of elimination my family has brought it down to two parties over the years, and I am holding a grudge against one of the parties. Just the party, not the hostess! Well, the party and the host. But that doesn't matter. All that matters is that I have to make the desserts! Yes, me... my mother delegates. So I was looking for something exciting and new, instead of the regular cookies or fruit platter, and I came across this: 4th of July Recipes -- Independence Day Recipes for Kids | FamilyFun ! No one at my party ever brings a trifle! So, I thought it would be an awesome dish to try out! Unfortunately, we did not have any whipping cream, and my sister refused to let me use any of 'her fruit', so... yeah. Traditional cookies it is.
