The last few days

**A trip to Sonic for dinner. All five of us eating in the car. Not as bad as I thought. And Em only spilled a little of her blue coconut slush(or 'slushly' as she says it).
**Watched Polar Express and drank homemade hot chocolate. Each of the boys had a partner to cuddle up with.



**Trying my hand at homemade marshmallows. I forgot to put the vanilla in but after I rolled them in peppermint they tasted yummy. I bagged some up for the kid's teachers.

**Figured out why our peppermint milkshakes tasted weird. Instead of peppermint ice cream I bought vanilla ice cream and candy canes to put in. I crushed up one of the leftover candy canes today for my marshmallows, grabbed a small piece of it and popped it in my mouth. Yep...it wasn't peppermint. It was either cinnamon or cherry. The piece was too small to tell but it definitely was not peppermint. Next time I'll make it easier on me and buy peppermint ice cream. Geez.

Guess what we're doing tonight? We're making homemade marshmallows and homemade hot chocolate mix to take to the boys Sunday School teachers/AWANA leaders tomorrow. Too funny!
