Hahaha!!! and I Can't Stop!!

Ok these made me laugh:

~We went to a cute little kids fair over the weekend! They had firefighters and their fire truck for kids to explore and police men and a police car with all its door open and later with its lights on inside the fair. Hubs said he wanted to run as fast as he could...dive through the open doors of the police car...look around...brush himself off...and then walk away like nothing happened! haaaaa! :)

I feel like I don't have a big enough smile in this pic, I'm still tweeking my smile for pictures, ha! If it's too big, my mouth looks crooked and funny, and if it's not big enough, then I don't feel like I look like I'm having fun, but I am!! Am I alone in this? You have so practiced in a mirror haven't you? haa! :)

~Hubs made Bean-Henge and some smiley faces with green beans with the baby on the baby's tray during dinner last night! He's teaching creativity! I was just cracking up as he was making the different faces, one had a goatee, some had funny hair sprigs, one had a mustache (that at first was with a short bean that looked like bad person in Jewish history, so he had to use a longer stash to be more appropriate! :))

Here are the two culprits :)

~Hubs walked into the family room the other day to discover something really heavy or awkward in the middle of the room, we knew it wasn't either of us so...he called it Baby-Henge!

And I can't stop...baking! I love baking but everything is a carb! I do make everything with whole wheat flour (and most of the time cut down on some sugar and butter) but still! It's so yummy! Blueberry pancakes, cookies, more cookies, blueberry scones, frozen blueberries are soo easy and healthy, more blueberry scones (Sunday morning and then Tues morning), bread, and homemade cheese fries!! I can't stop!

I love trays! But this one's leather so I had to put a towel in it to protect from hot or water :) I got Hubs tea, my decaf coffee, and BabyBoy's milk, and headed outside to enjoy the weather on the porch!

Ooh and I made chocolate meringues topped with crushed walnuts yesterday! I'm so excited that I can make really good meringues here since the weather is so dry :) the humidity makes them moosh :) One batch makes about 4 dozen and each one is about 10 calories! A yummy light, fluffy, sweet dessert!

I didn't have a icing bag so I just made my own out of a baggie :) So they're not the prettiest but their yummy!

Happy Wednesday! Ooh I'd so appreciate if you say a little prayer for something I'm hoping works out to be fun on Sat (I'll tell you more tomorrow :))

I always use a baggy for icing....the best part, no clean up.,..just throw it out!!

Look at you & all your baking - yum! Carbs are the best!!! Why do they have to be bad for you? At least in big quanities?

Those scones look amazing! You are quite the baker lately!

You put me to shame with the baking. I have never loved it but like to do it more now that I have a two year old helper.

I am always amazed at all the stuff I see you making.
