  Paxton’s world is made complete by his Sock Monkey, Binky  named “Bink” and his blanky.

{SIGH}  Wouldn’t it be nice if we adults could be so easily comforted?

My baby is growing up.  He no longer will rock and sing with me before morning and afternoon naps, or night-time for that matter.  He just points to his bed and grunts.  {WAH!}  This part of independent baby-hood has always been a hard one for me, but with this being my last little one, I find it even more difficult to accept.

Can I have a blanky and a sock monkey to snuggle too?

Sweets & My Sweet

021

These Candied Popcorn balls were great! We decided to do Grape flavor, which tasted JUST like a Jolly Rancher. Except chewy. Oh man, was this popcorn good and not healthy at ALL, but hey, you gotta live a little, right?! 🙂

Being Grape popcorn balls, I figured they’d be a bit more, well, you know….

Purple.

Guess that’s what you come to expect from a society that adds dye to EVERYTHING!

Here is a purple tinted photo to put your mind at ease, that these popcorn balls do indeed taste like Grape, despite their non-grapey color in the above photo.

In a sauce pan mix the sugar, Jello and syrup.

  “You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.”
