I figured I would share my failed attempt at making graham crackers from scratch. It sounded like a good idea and the recipe seemed easy… What a mess! The dough never set up properly and as you can see the crackers came out all misshapen. Plus, after all the sticky, messy work, they didn’t taste anything like a graham cracker – AND – what they did taste like (couldn’t tell ya), didn’t taste good! A cracker better left to the pros.
Ellie has been as cute as ever this past week, even though she’s getting her molars. She had a bad day (didn’t sleep the night before) but for the most part she’s been happy. Poor girl has a non stop runny nose and these teeth are hurting her. She keeps pushing on her checks or leaning on her hand. We’ve been giving her ice to chew on and her frozen teething rings during the day; at night she gets a nice dose of Motrin to get rid of that pain and let her sleep – that Tylenol just wasn’t cuttin’ it! We have been hunting ladybugs in the backyard daily; they are quite plentiful in the grass right now, we must have some good bugs for them to eat! She likes letting the ladybugs crawl on her fingers and hands and then she waves and says bye when they fly away. She’s also been waving and saying Hi to the airplanes and birds that fly over our yard… such the hostess!! She got her first box of Sees chocolates from Granny on Valentine ’s Day! And, boy did she like ‘em. We let her choose one piece, which she did, and she ate it slowly and deliberately – actually enjoyed her candy. Usually she just shoves stuff in her face and swallows, so this was a sight to behold!
