Tidbits (Timbits?? I like donuts)

Here are some kinda random bits...

The boys had their 18 month shots today. They are both about the 24% for weight, and 75% for height. So, kinda tall. Just right I think. They are such troopers when they get their shots. The Bug is a man of steel. He barely winces, even on the second needle. The Bee was great too. He recovered in no time, with a little cuddle from mom. It still almost made me cry though. We're tough, but I'm glad we don't have to do it again for 3 years.

What makes a new park the best park ever?? Finding a golf ball AND crab apple trees. A boy could be in heaven!

After reading so much about it, I decided I had to try it for myself. The recipe couldn't have been easier. I used Julie's version which is super simple. I didn't have cans so I used bags. I added coconut extract, and some unsweetened coconut. Perhaps a tad too much (crunchy), but oh well. My intention was to make if for the lads, of course, but I had to make the first batch as a test of quality control. Success! YUM!

And yet another gift from Julie...who wants to go here with me???!!!!

Ms. Mittens,
Homemade icecream...yum! Can the love of ice cream be genetic? Like the love of cheese? I think I have this gene. Add to this the family tradition of making homemade ice cream on Christmas Day and voila my little son shall be an addict for certain! I think I shall spare him for a while longer though....more for me...hee hee! ~ I glad to hear your parenting skills are more generous than mine.
