It’s the 4th, which means we need some sort of celebratory snack.
Ingredients: a package of marshmallows 2 packages of melting chocolate, in red & blue, or food coloring a pack of red, white, and blue M&Ms a package or more of graham crackers
Melt your chocolate. Took a minute in my microwave, according to directions. Place a graham square down. Dip one marshmallow into one color. Place on top of graham cracker Dip another marshmallow in the other color. Place on top of the first marshmallow. I used my M&Ms to decorate the bottom of my “firecracker”.
Yesterday, I didn’t blog. I have a valid excuse: I was gone all day, We went to Josh’s brother’s house. It was a good day. A very good day. All the siblings hung out, and it was just great! I got a LOT of pictures, but didn’t get many decent ones of the fireworks. We didn’t go to the ones held in Topeka. I hate crowds. Josh’s neck was all screwy. I did get some shots, though.
I also got some videos of the kids! They played on a little park near where Jesse lives
Okay, first off, it sucks because we didn’t get to go do fireworks!! First, we had a big storm blow through. Tornado-warning big storm. A tornado was spotted 4 miles from Mark’s store. That means it was DAMN close to us (we’re a 5 minute drive from there). I look out, I go “look, the clouds are rotating”, and *BOOM*, off goes the tornado warnings. Not fun. So, with rain, we decided it best to just stay home. So we didn’t go to to “Go Fourth”/”Spirit of Kansas”. Kinda sad, but we had a nice dinner, and got to see some fireworks outside on the porch, until Five chased us inside with retarded use of fireworks :firework. *grumble*
Then, of course, I start on the 4th. Cramps seriously hit me at 8, and they hit hard and fast. Painfully so. :grr: It hurts so bad. I’m hating life right now, and it’s not a pretty sight at all. Josh, being the amazing guy he is, is doing all he can to make me feel better. Midol isn’t helping at all, and I think that’s pissing me off more. :help:
