One Tasty Afternoon

Yesterday, Josh had to stop at Walmart on the way home from school.  He is out of tissues in his classroom (and a classroom without tissues simply cannot function...true fact). 

He called me from the store to see if there was anything that we needed (he is sweet and thoughtful like that...not to mention well trained -- hehe).  I said we were ok.

But he knows me better than that.

So he came home with ice cream.  I love that man.

Watch out, he may croak at any minute
Also yesterday, I decided to be a little bit creative with our after school snack.  I wrote an article this month about what to do with hard boiled eggs after Easter, so I decided to take my own advice.  Growing up, my mom used to make us this egg salad dip that was great with Ritz crackers, so I whipped it up all proud that I wasn't just plopping something from a box onto the table.

No dice.  This is reaction I got.  Bryce abandoned his and suddenly wasn't hungry (even though he is usually STARVING after school), he fled the scene.  Gavin screamed and cried because I asked him to at least try it before he decided it was disgusting. 

Surprisingly, he gagged and nearly died because of the two bites he had to eat.  Poor child.

Ellie loved the stuff.  She (and her messy hair) gobbled down all the bits no one else would touch.  I think she did it just to make me feel good for my efforts.  It worked, just a little.  Thanks Ellie Belly.

Hi Melissa - I just wanted to tell you thank you for the FHE Cupcake lesson I found on Mormontimes.com. There was no spot to comment on that site, so I thought I would visit your blog to say thank you. My three kids refused to eat the cupcakes (I knew they would - picky eaters) but my husband loved them and the lesson was great regardless.
