Strangeness and sweets.

I haven't been sleeping well.

I got up at 5:30 to go to Walmart to get some Santa hats because the kids needed them for school and I'm such a procrastinator that I waited until the VERY LAST MINUTE.

Anyway, I get to the parking lot and I look at the car beside me.

This is what I see:

Question: What kind of person rides around with Chucky in their passenger seat?

Answer: The kind who doesn't want anyone asking them for a ride.

I'll pass.

Now Andy over at Wild ARS Chase posted about how great his mom is. Well I have news for you too.

When I was little, I remember making sugar cookies and decorating them during Christmas time. Little snowmen and Santas.

Now, she's doing the same with my kids and they love it.

Question: Why don't YOU continue to make the cookies every year Sheila, along with them?

Answer: Cause I'm totally overwhelmed with all of this stuff and couldn't help but pass out from exhaustion around 8:00 each night.

That's why.

Anyway, here is my mom is helping Miah make Pon de Polvos (<--if that's even spelled right).

I won't go into details...the pics say it all.

I spoke with Miah's teacher and she said that Miah told her that she would volunteer to make the German Chocolate cake. HUH? That wasn't even on the list!
The teacher said she asked Miah: Are you sure? German Chocolate cake?
And that Miah told her: Yes, I know how to make it.
Then Miah comes home with the paper saying we were signed up to bring it. OKAY.
Well my mom gets this idea that she would help her make it.
Hey! Who was I to try to talk her out of that? Run with it!
So they did.
They decided to do little cakes in the shape of stockings and trees. That way everyone would have their own little shaped cake.

Then Miah started getting the frosting and grossed out. She squinted at it and said it "looked weird".

ME: WHAT? Little chick?! Didn't you know what German Chocolate cake looks like?
MIAH: Yes, but this is gross.
So, instead of the frosting that is usually applied, we used the decorating frosting that comes in the tubes.
Of course, mommy (me) forgot to get the little tips so they just slathered it on there.
The finished product: How Cute.
We'll be making the sugar cookies sometime this week.
Get ready for THAT show.
I've been so disorganized lately.
It must be the holidays.

If I saw that in the car next to me I would drive away as fast as I can screaming. Of course, I am about as tough as wet newspaper, so...

That Chucky thing is Hilarious. I'm kinda mad I didn't think of that.

I have a Tiffany doll from Bride of Chucky. I have her propped in my bedroom window, and I occasionally move her to make it look like she's walking around :D He he.

I swear if I ever find a chucky doll he is going to be my co-pilot!
And please stop with the food porn! I am dieing over here :-~

I'm impressed with the final product.
And thanks for the link love- sorry I've been MIA. I blame it on Christmas. I'll catch up soon!
