Good Times w/ Little Kids

While we were in Mesquite, NV for the first 3 months of the year, we were able to spend lots of time with my family. Unfortunately, I am not a avid photographer, so the following are the only pictures I got while we visited. My sister got her kids giant pads of paper and this is Andrew, Spencer, and Hannah (my niece & nephew) coloring on the giant pad of paper.

Broken Pot

So here I was making J-ello a little bit ago, and I thought it would be a good idea to use my cute, yellow stoneware casserole dish. I poured in the hot water and there was a loud pop, which I thought was quite odd. Then I carried the dish over to the counter, no problems, to pour in the cold water. I then began to pick up the dish, at which point, the entire bottom came right off! J-ello went everywhere: all over the floor, onto the stove, in the sink, around the sink, dripping down the wall...EVERYWHERE! For your viewing pleasure, I have taken a picture of the broken casserole dish and warn you that ceramic is not a good option to make J-ello in. Unfortunately I did not get any pictures of the J-ello everywhere, sorry!
