ABC, Wordful, and Watch Me Wednesday ~ A Triple Threat


Today is the letter H




H is for Hamantaschen

One of the staff of Campus Life called me this morning and made a request for this cookie. It is eaten during the Jewish holiday of Purim which celebrates the story of Ester. I found a recipe online which in retrospect I don't think is as traditional as the one printed on the back side of the label from the poppy seed filling. The dough was good but if I ever make them again I will just use jam, fruit or chocolate.

How do you empty a mud puddle?

First jump up...




...then...





SPLASH DOWN!

It is near impossible to keep these kiddles of mine out of the puddles. We go on a nature walk everyday, weather permitting, and I can't wait until the puddles are nothing more than than dusty divots in the road. As I've said before, the puddles are fun for the first week, after that... Grrrrr.

Watch Me Wednesday

This video just cracks me up. It was just one of those crazy late night moments. James was still up and Daddy just happened to mention that he learned how to tear a phone book in half.

"Nuh-uh." I replied intelligently.
"Yuh-huh." he replied, equally as savvy.

But what got My Love to his feet was the fact that his own boy didn't believe it. I always keep extra phonebooks around for just such an occasion.

We are just crazy like that... yes, thats me singing the dramatic sountrack. :-p

My appologies ;-)

Happy Wednesday!

Recipes are there to be changed to your own taste I think. The Hamantaschen look nice though...

Ummmmm . . . that phone book trick? A MESS!! I'd prefer to see my love hefting shovelsful of muck to make me a pond-sized puddle for jumping (or rowing). Cookies look delish! I LOOOOOVE poppyseeds. : D
