Yesterday, in the Inquirer, there was a shout-out for kids to submit their most disgusting recipe, and get 4 free tickets to see 'HOW TO EAT FRIED WORMS'- the movie (and a very cute book, as well.) Never one to pass up a fun freebie, this was what the girls came up with. BON APPETIT;)!

by Frankie (6) & Zoe (3)

- 1 Dozen Smashed-Up Worms
- 1 Gallon of Baby Spit-Up
- 2 Extra Runny Poopy Diapers (like from a newborn)
- 1 Dozen Moldy, Mushy Red Grapes
- 1 Quart of Starling Bird Poop
- 5 Egg Shells
- 1 Cup of Dog Slime
- 1/2 a Chicken
- 1 Giant Cat Hairball
- 1/2 Cup of Dead Fleas

First, get a big soup pot. Put in a dozen smashed up worms. Then add a gallon of baby spit-up. Next, stir in 2 very poopy newborn diapers. Add 1 dozen moldy, mushy red grapes. Blend together and add 1 quart of Starling poop, and 5 smashed-up egg shells. Then add 1 cup of dog slime and a 1/2 sliced chicken. Finally, add one giant cat hairball and sprinkle with 1/2 cup of dead fleas. Cook for 8 minutes, uncovered, & eat up! YUM!

The Entertainer

Today Frankie decided that she wanted to play piano. Inspired by her friend Zack's arrangement of the Olympic Theme, she not only learned the notes and rhythm, but also practiced 'scales' using only her right hand (she's a lefty.) Already a dedicated musician ;)!

Here she is warming up with notes 'C, D, and E.':

And now, for the 'piece de resistance!'...

The OLYMPIC THEME, as arranged by ZACK:)

Frankie Gets a Visit from the Tooth Fairy

Well, it's been crazy here the past few weeks, and we were having keyboard issues, so as a result, 'the blog' has been neglected. However, things are slowly getting back to normal, and we're going to sit down, peruse our thoughts and photos, and catch up as we can.

Meanwhile...Frankie has been having A LOT of excitement lately. In addition to having a FABULOUS time at nature camp, Friday she LOST HER VERY FIRST TOOTH! She was SO excited, and relieved, as it was really bothering her a lot. I have mixed feelings. I remember when that tooth came in- and I can't believe it's gone now:(! The 'Tooth Fairy' came and compensated Frankie quite nicely for her troubles, but still...Where is the time going?
