a sign we play restaurant to much

my kids and i are always roll playing. but this was a sure sign we were playing to much.

mr. wiggles was sitting at the dinner table waiting for his food. when i gave him his plate, he looked at me and said, "Waitress, tell me about this hummus?"

he was trying to figure out if it was Zingo's or Byblo's hummus. lol

maybe a sign we eat to much lebanese food, huh???

eatzingos.com thanks e-ka for making great hummus!!

for the love of...













...OWLS???

IT'S STRANGE!!!!
I KNOW !!
but ever since alice was born, i just can't get enough of them.

a couple of months ago, a friend introduced me to emily & her sister suzie. they are the owners behind, JELLY TOAST & JELLY TOAST KIDS. check them out at http://www.etsy.com/people/jellytoastkids, they have lots of cool stuff.
the best part about our owl friends, is that i was able to customize them. alice loves hot tea and purple and mr. wiggles loves, NO, LOVES, HEAVY MACHINES.
so meet HAZEL & HENRY.
each come with names and a short biography. hazel loves sugar cubes and collects vintage tee-shirts. while, henry loves finger painting and watching "This Old House."
emily & suzie would love to make a special owl friend for you too, email them at jelly.toast@hotmail.com. the price is right too!! $22ish. did i mention they are two local moms. how they find time to make all these fun things, beats me! i'm jealous! (i'm a closet bad ass on a sewing machine, ask KP)
I LOVE JELLY TOAST
WHO... WHOO DOESN'T NEED AN OWL FRIEND?????
EVERYONE IN MY FAMILY IS GETTING ONE, WHETHER THEY LIKE IT OR NOT.
OWLS...OWLS ALL AROUND!!!

poor honolulu & bruno

alice brought home some yarn from school, she told me "gilbert has yarn!" "ok...who's gilbert??" i thought, but she was running out the door.
this afternoon, she went and got the yarn. out of the corner of my eye, i see alice dangling the yarn over our dog. i stopped and said "do you think lulu is a cat?" she said "yes!"
alice continues to say, "put our dogs away, i want a cat for 30 minutes"
LMAO

GOOD FRIEND OR BAD FRIEND?

A friend of mine turned our family on to this AMAZING ice cream.

This isn't just ICE CREAM either, it's MUCH, MUCH MORE.

NOW, don't just sit down & eat the whole pint, you have to make this last.

(at least a few days)

IT IS w o n d e r f u l ! ! (but bad for my waistline)

www.jenisicecreams.com

all of her ice creams are made with ohio dairy from pasture raised cows. no antibiotics, growth hormones, herbicides or pesticides... cows eat grass, which their bodies were built to eat.


we have tried several flavors but, you MUST TRY: salty caramel- a perfect salty sweet balance (alice's favorite too)

churchill's maumee & perrysburg carries jeni's

we met jeni at the 2010 food and wine celebration www.culinaryvegetableinstitute.com the institue is located on a farm, THE CHEFS GARDEN, in huron, ohio. jeni uses products from this farm.

check out this site for cool things to do with & without the kids.

mollydollylama, you are a GOOD FRIEND!! thank you for introducing us to great new flavors!

LOCO, YOU WANT WHAT???????

LOCO IS FUNNY & ADORABLE!

quote of the day #503

alice and i wanted to try a new area restaurant, a greasy spoon. ailce didn't eat much, so i told her we would go somewhere else.
i asked her to go pay the bill. she hands our waitress the money and says,

"we're going to Zingo's, so we can eat healthy!"

i looked at the waitress and said, "it was really good, thank you."

snow white & bulldozer man

alice wanted to be SNOW WHITE & mr. wiggles wanted to be an excavator.
YEP, an excavator.
thinking that was too much of a challenge, i went with
making him the owner of ''mr. wiggles dozer co."
he ditched his hard hat early on for a few rocks to show everyone.
hoping to get a better photo of them at the indoor party tomorrow.
check back.

I LOVE IT.
BUT ALICE... YOU REALLY ARE THROWING me for a loop this year.
SNOW WHITE?!
