The best recipe ever!

Here's a quick update on what's been going on here. First off Sam is never home for dinner so dinner time is not my favorite time. Tonight was great though except for a few minor exceptions (which I'll get to later). For starters my kids ate everything for dinner, without complaining! Isaac even told me that it was the, "best ever!" and Smith even clapped his hands together giggling. What did I make you ask......

It's kind of complicated but here's the recipe:
3 containers of yogurt
1 slice of toast cut into perfect squares
1 bag of perfectly popped popcorn
1 child size handful of almonds (for each child)
3 cups of chocolate milk
1 orange cut into the cutest most perfect wedges possible

Of course you will have to adjust the portions accordingly. Oh and save the oranges for the very end, that's when our "magic moment" of clapping and compliments occurred! (Don't worry I did not give Smith any almonds) :)

Shortly after our glowing moment ended. I was in the kitchen cleaning when I turn of the water and hear the pitter patter of milk hitting our rug. I turn to see Smith with his sippy cup turned upside down. I run over to him and he starts shaking the cup faster and then throws it across the room and starts splashing in the milk throwing his head back and giggling. That same giggle I thought was so cute just 10 min ago. I clean Smith up and then get on my hands and knees and start cleaning the milk under the table only to lift my head up and see Eliza, milk everywhere. So then I strip her down and begin cleaning her. Only to turn around and see Smith standing on the table emptying the contents of what was left in Eliza's cup.
Yes there are sooooooo many ways in which these situations could of been avoided. One big one is spill proof sippy cups.....which I own! :) I also could of put all the cups away immediately.........I could go on!

These are the culprits at hand captured in better moments.
