Stop It!

I always say I'm not a big fan of time travel discussion,
but I might be interested in stopping time altogether.

Polly turned 5 today.
Happy Birthday, Polly!

Macy loves

Macy really, really wanted her only blog.
She wanted to call it Macy Lou Loves.
I give my kids whatever they want.

Just when my two girls learn how to pump themselves...
Another one comes along.

If you scroll fast it's like he's really swinging.

Target Demographic

"It's true!  You really can fall in love with your Pillow Pet."

(Styled and photographed by Macy, last October)

This is what Macy told me yesterday.
Apparently it is what the commercial advertised when she decided she must have one last fall.

Macy is a major sucker for advertising.   Saturday morning cartoons have done us a lot of favors.  One is exposure to lots of commercials.  Over the years she has tried to convince me to buy a number of products.

An indestructible wallet:  "You can even drive over it with a car!"

A shoe organizer that fits under your bed.

Nutrisystem:  "You never have to worry about portion size again!"
(If this was a hint it wasn't very subtle.)
We debated this one for a while and that girl has a keen memory.  Every thing I tried to say, she had a comeback for.  "It's so easy!"  "All the other diets don't work!"  "You should see how big their old clothes are!"

Two Christmas's ago she told me all about these pretend hamsters that run around on a track and in tunnels and they AREN'T real, but they LOOK real.
(I thought to myself, that will never catch on. Ha.)

Yesterday, I found this gem in my e-mail.  I had e-mailed it to myself 3 years ago so I wouldn't forget.

"Mom!!  I just saw something on TV for you.  It's called Aquaglow.  It's for your plants.  You just put it in the soil and it waters the plants for you. (with shoulder shrugs) no more spills, no more dying plants, no more drooping."

Funny thing is, I actually need this one.

Fresh Cream Butter is Good

I'm sure I've done this before in my youth.
I saw this post and felt domestic.
It was super easy, and a little messy,
and a lot super delicious.

Shake, shake, shake heavy cream and salt.

When you get tired of shaking,
put it in the mixer,
(poor pioneers with no mixers)
and mix a loooooong time.

It magically turns into butter and butter milk.
We added honey.

But I am for real looking for the best bread recipe.  I've tried a few and they have been good, but I want super awesome.
Do you have one?
Can I handle it?
Do I need a wheat grinder?
 Cause they are spensive.
