*I refer to my groceries as loot because of the insane deals I get while shopping at Publix. When you're getting groceries at 50 and 60% off, shopping really is a pleasure.
While cooking dinner a couple of nights ago, I realized I needed an ingredient out of the
And there they sat.
In my defense, this has been a bit of an off-week. I don't normally leave groceries laying around for hours at a time (as in 48 hours at a time), but putting them away just hasn't been at the top of my priority list. Obviously. Finally, the temptation was just too great for Isabel...
...and she broke into a bag or two so that she could partake in one of her favorite pastimes -- stacking.
Before long, the kids had made a Mixed Nut Tower and a Chewy Bar Choo-Choo...
...and my kitchen closely resembled the Publix stock room after a tornado strike.
I have to say, it was quite a mess for all of us to clean up, but man, did they have fun!!
There are a few Overheard at Our House Today quotes to share before I go.
1. Abby: "I really wish I had four arms."
Me: "Why, baby?"
Abby: "Because then I could hold my bowl in one hand and my cup in another hand, and I could reach one hand into the pantry and one into the refrigerator -- all at the same time!" (Remember what I said about Little Lewis Eaters???)
2. Josh: "Jack, take the sandwich out of your hair."
3. This one needs a little preface. We had just sat down to eat, and among the foods we were having were crescent rolls. Jack looked over to the stove and saw a lone crescent roll still sitting there, and he exclaimed, "LOOK! That cwessant woll can be for our new baby!"
Oh, how precious that is to me! I've been writing a post in my mind for a while now about our new son and where we are logistically -- and emotionally -- in our efforts to bring him home. I'll be back with that one.
