"Where does Bacon come from?"

A funny thing happened while at the Wally World. Yes, I go to walmart a lot. My son, who is about to be 6, had asked me:
"Where does Bacon come from? and ground beef?"
So, I looked him in the eye, {and being the realist that I am}, I said :"Cows and Pigs".
"Oh. Ok. And bread, does that come from cow?"
"No, that comes from flour and wheat and things from the earth"
"Oh. Ok."
"When I say Pigs and cows, do you understand?"
"Kind of."
This is the part where I am uber-brutally honest, but again, I am a realist and wouldn't lie to my children.
"Do you know Porky at the farm animal exhibit?"
"THAT is bacon."
" :-O "
"Do you know all of the cows we walk around with in the pasture at the farm?"
"THAT ia ground beef"
" :-O "
And to myself I thought, we are on our way to being vegan!

Inspektor KupKake...

I have such a wonderful husband. With that said, my kuppy kake world is an 1/8 crushed due to him. But, I keep telling myself: "I have such a wonderful husband." Working hard yesterday, while hubs had the day off, Lucky. I noticed how quiet it was in the hizzy. So cool that my kids are being so quiet fo rme to work. Well come to find out, they weren't even here.

When I happened to look up and out of the corner of my eye. I saw my drama queen sweet little roo (Ky) dryign my wheels with a rag. I had to double-take. But yes, she was drying my wheels with a rag. Look at my car!!! It was so shiny and purty!

Never saw my car drive back and forth from my driveway to the main street. Oblivious much. BUT. I did notice ONE THING. And I had temporarily forgotten about it, until hubs had said soemthign about 45 min ago.
My back hatch was missing the very couture piece of luxury it had owned.

MY KUPPY KAKES BY KRISTIN MAGNET. What the @#!!*&$%^!!! Where did my beauty go!? I figured that my husband, whom I love very much (reminding myself to keep the heart rate down), had removed it to clean the car underneath it. It gets dirty out hur in the country. ;)

But then today! He called me to say: "Did you take the magnet off of the car?" Why "NO, I didn't. Maybe YOU did, to clean it." "IT wasn't there when I arrived at the car wash." Im thinking, my fat fanny it wasn't. He said, "maybe someone took it." "Why would someone, anyone, not named Kristin take my magnet!" He said: Like a man, "I dunno." URGH!

How odd, the timing of it all, and he cut his own throat by saying (at the beginning of my new car relatiosnhip) "You are not putting those magnets on this car!" Guess he had the last word.

Or does he? I have an even BIGGER magnet that I am going to put on it, and when he arrives home from out of town, we will se who has the last laugh. ;) bahahaha!

Easter 2011

Yes, you read that right, Easter. But wasn't it? Yeah, it was. But I just NOW got my camera unloaded and here I go down the list of pictures and posts. I asked if you were ready. :)

Well Easter was a time for bunny cakes, candy filled eggs, ham, potato salad, dresses and egg hunts. Well. Our Easter was supposed to be like all the others. Wake up, go to church, head to grandmothers house, lunch, egg hunt, home. Not this year. At THE last minute, and I mean the LAST minute. I was informed by my lovely cousin that guess what?! No Easter at gma's this year. WAIT?! WHAT?! She then promptly text me and said: "No food, nothing,what are we all going to do? Stand around and STARE at one another!?"

How sad. I know my gma is getting older and its getting harder for her, which in understandable. But I could've thrown in some eggs and a dessert and a side. But she just didn't want all of the noise. I love her so very much, if it weren't for her, I probably would have no care for baking. GASP! But to be honest, she is becoming more and more forgetful. Her mother had alhezheimers, so I wouldn't discount that, that is what's happening. Anyways.

OK. Plan B. Wait, what is Plan B? We have never had a plan b. I don't even know where to begin. Yes, I do. CHURCH! So, we headed to church on a Saturday night and if I were an emotional person, I would have balled my eyes out like a baby. NOT saying I did, because I didn't, just saying to say, ya know? That was my 3 year old, oh wait she was in the daycare area.... hmm.

Then on Easter Sunday, headed back to church to work the children's ministries. Well it dawned at me as we were leaving church. What is for lunch? Well I know what wasn't for lunch. Ham. Deviled eggs. Potato Salad. Yeast Rolls. Green Beans. Apple rings. Spaghetti and Cheese! Man, im getting hungry. you?

At the wally world, I called hubby. Yo hubby! Whats say we throw together an Easter dinner and invite anyone who isn't already taken? OK! He said, your crazy, too last minute, but I would like a ham. HA.

So, that is what we did. I called my family members who were close by, invited them over and cooked my bunny tail off. And here are the pictures to show! :) Sorry about my long story, I try to be humorous, but it isn't working today. Enjoy the pictures. Oh, quick tragic story. Do you know those little chicks that chirp non stop while they are in your hand? Yeah, me and my sister had one when we were younger, dad got tired of them, and tossed them out the window! So, my kids had those is their buckets, and yeah, let's just say that they are now chew toys of the dogs! ;) Thanks dad for the heads up about parenting.

P.S. Please ignore the dirty kids, I was cooking, can't do it all! ;)
P.S.S. Also, the rabid looking monsters in pjs, those are mine. We just woke up, what can I say. :)

HA! No easter bunnies here, aliens. That's how we roll.

She loves her Uncle Noodle!

My handsome little brother!


This is your warning!
I am about to unload my camera and flood ya'll with pictures and stories!
