In our home - We like our sweets!!!

Our neighbor dropped off a plate of cupcakes the other day. One little piggie had two without asking. I am partially to blame, I did leave them in full sight on the kitchen table. My question, however, is why did she decided to wear them.

My husband has been talking alot about funnel cakes lately. I'm not sure where this has come from. In our 7 years of marriage we have never purchased a funnel cake. We have often walked by a funnel cake stand and come close to buying one, but then sticker shock sets in and we keep on walking.

The other day Alex tells me he's found a recipe for funnel cake on the internet and he's going to try it. I then start asking some questions and find out he's only had a funnel cake once in his whole life. I don't know if you can tell but he's using an old ketchup bottle to dispense the batter. It turned out pretty well, but I'm still finding powder sugar in little crevices.

Um. I think you should post the recipe. I think we might need to use a lot of ketchup in the next couple of days.

oh my! That picture with the cupcake all over the face is breath-taking....in such a way that I can only be grateful I've never experienced it first hand!!

Tim wants to know what you are doing that would allow your 18 month old start fires, empty trash bag boxes and eat cupcakes? Not judging, just curious?

I don't want to point fingers and I won't name names, but in two of the incidents I was not home and Brooke was in the hands of another adult (I don't want to name names, but this person has had 6 years of extensive experience and I had thought I had left her in capable hands.) The trash bag incident was my fault but to my excuse I was buried in the kid's closet trying to make some sense of the chaos.

yes, post the recipe--or at least the site where he found it--I could go for a yummy funnel cake!
