Back when I was buying all those cake mixes for that big order, I accidently bought three white and one pineapple. I needed four white so I had to run to the store in the middle of baking.
So,here I am stuck with this pineapple cake mix…yuck! Not to mention lots of colored leftover frosting.
So I now introduce the world to:
I really won’t need a patent on these because nobody’s crazy enough to make them.
This morning,I found myself in a very small room with balloons flying,popcorn scattering and kids yelling;everywhere. Believe it or not we were celebrating Thanksgiving. I told them the story of the first day on this continent that a day,or several days,were set aside for thanks.
We went through the reasons that those people came here and what they suffered in so doing. When we got to the part about their first winter,I gave them their snack;five pieces of corn each. I thought it was a wonderful idea,but they weren’t so impressed. They were starting to get the idea that the Pilgrims didn’t have it so good. They were pretty thankful when I gave them popcorn instead.
Then for fun and games. I didn’t think that wrestling and shooting bows and arrows where such encouraging activities. So,we had mazes,balloons,straws and paper airplanes. They had a blast breaking out of the norm,blowing straw papers,having balloon contests,folding airplanes and generally being chaotic.
Different,yes,but I thought it was fun. Someone even said that it was the best! When I step out of that little room when it’s all over people ask me how it went. I just smile and reply that it was good. All the while thinking,’You have no idea!’
I just left for the weekend and I come back to find that my family had bought potato chips…
Yeah,and even weirder than that lime potato chips.
