The Things Kids Will Say
Princess A, "Auntie is not that smart."
Auntie, (after a shocked pause and suppressing a laugh)
"That is not the right way to say that. Is there a better way to say that?"
After a pause, Princess A says "Auntie is not very smart."

Tooth Fairy Boxes
Princess G also decorated a box for her 'loose' tooth. (If you are wondering about her hair she has one ponytail and one braid, that is what she wanted.)
You can almost see the loose tooth, bottom front left tooth. We did this project just in time as the tooth fell out soon after we were done.
It was Princess G's idea to paint the insides (and the bottom) of the boxes.

My Baby Lost her First Tooth!!
It has been loose for a while. Today I gave a slight tug and out it came.
She said it didn't hurt at all.
The tooth fairy just made her delivery.
(Princess A rolled over, half sat up and then laid back down, all without opening her eyes!
The Tooth Fairy was sure she was caught!)

Making English Toffee
2/3 cups white sugar
1 Tablespoons water plus 1 1/4 Teaspoon water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 to 3/4 Cup chocolate chips (milk chocolate is best but semi-sweet is good also)
Melt butter in a saucepan and add sugar and water and stir well.
Over medium high heat cook, stirring frequently, until it reaches 300degrees. If the candy appears to separate (with a layer of melted butter on top) stir vigorously to make it come back together again.Watch CLOSELY at 285 degrees, since it cooks quickly and will scorch at high temperatures.
At 300 degrees remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Carefully pour toffee into prepared pan smoothing to desired thickness and let set about a minute. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
Wait about three minutes until chocolate chips are soft and melted from the heat of the toffee. Smooth chocolate across the top of the toffee.
Place in refrigerator until hard. Peel aluminum foil from back of toffee and break into pieces!

Our Puppet Show at the Library
We always get lots of books at the library but this time I reached the limit. I had over 50 book checked out! I really had less than that but the stack we just returned were not checked in yet. I think I might return a few books tomorrow (the real total is 43 books).

Princess G's Helps Make Dinner

Visit to Aunt Cathy's
As soon as we arrived Princess G took off her socks, she really does not like wearing socks if she doesn't have to.
We actually got a family picture, since I am the one who takes most of the pictures I usually forget to be in the photographs.

Princess A joined the Daisy Girl Scouts
Princess A is proudly showing her craft she made and the two patches she earned (one was from the cancelled meeting.) Now I just have to iron them on, maybe I will get my husband to do that since he does the ironing around here.

Helping at School
Of course the first day I start helping my husband is sick and Princess G decided to stay home with him so I did not even have her.
Here Princess A rolled the die for a six so she could draw the carrot nose.
I can't wait to help next week and neither can the Princesses.
