Happy Halloween

from Dennis Rodman, dressed as Beetlejuice. Here is an idea mom, remember when you dressed up like Dennis Rodman with all different colored hair and a b-ball uniform, this was a reminder and made me laugh.

Fruit fly experiment

We are having a little bit of an issue at our casa, it is that little flies start swarming around your head and food at mealtime. So with the help of my little scientists who love experiments we made our own concerning this issue. Which concoction will attract and hopefully kill the most fruit flies?

internet idea #1 ziploc slightly opened with old fruit= 5 flies so far

internet idea# 2 vinegar mixed with dish soap= 13 flies so far

my idea#3 empty budlight lime bottle= 16 flies so far
Any other ideas, or should my cheapy self just call the pest control?

How bout them apples

Ms.Heather Jane, one of my favorite people to the right inspired me to dip some apples today. I chose Honeycrisp with a dip in caramel, then a dip in melted choc, rolled in Heath bar. Xander preferred his not dipped at all while Roe's dipped hers in caramel and chocolate, the aftermath is pictured above. Check out her beautiful baking job and how to's on her most recent post, I can't remember how to link, my lack of sleep kicking in.
