Roller skating in the driveway is done. It was fun for about 5 minutes, but skating on pavement is a lot harder than skating on a smooth surface. I had much more fun after I went inside to skate in the kitchen. Also, in case you have been wondering, it is very hard to push a stroller while you are on roller skates. You wouldn't think so, but it is true.
Here is possibly the most white trash thing I have ever cooked. Now I come from white trash, so I can use the term with pride. This casserole consists of cream sauce made from powdered milk, cut up Mickey Mouse chicken nuggets, frozen green beans, leftover baby carrots, leftover boiled potatoes, and is topped with crushed potato chips (for the crunch). All adults dutifully ate the project, but no one but me braved seconds. You can take the girl out of the white trash, but you can't take the white trash out of the girl.
This is my eldest playing a rousing game of "throw the plastic banana through the window on the playhouse". Basically, this is included because it cracks me up.
And here is my homage to recycling. Man how I love to re-use a paper grocery sack. If you have scrap fabric around and a pair of pinking shears, you also have a bow. :)
Brace yourself for the rush of the Holiday roller coaster!
