Memorial Day Crack-up

We had a late start today, about 1pm late. ;-) But we made the best of it of course.

Got errands done after we did a quick rearrangement of the storage. We even managed to do a barbeque within two hours of dinner time with a matching tablescape!

But the highlight of the day is I-Dude's quick witted ways. We love his ability to come up with songs or sayings or stories even, on the fly. Like tonight, during dinner... One of our veggies was steamed broccoli. He loves the funny sound of the song "Barbie World" or something rather and starts to announce,

"Mommy, look at this broccoli." Then he started singing with the broccoli floret as his mike, I'm a broccoli boy, in a broccoli world. It's fantastic, being eaten! (The lyrics go, I'm a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world. It's fantastic, being plastic.) We all, were just lucky enough to not have too much in our mouths when he sang. We laughed so hard that there was a 5-minute lapse in our eating time! LOL

If you laughed, have a cupcake, if you didn't have a cupcake anyway. It's a white cupcake with chocolate frosting and raspberries. I made too many. Ok, I only made 22, but my family's only allowed one so there are many left. Go on! I even put powdered sugar on yours. You know you want one! I won't tell anybody... ;-)

(Psst! That saucer, I mean, dessert plate, it's a Mikasa Intaglio Collection called, "Annette".
I got it at Goodwill for 59 cents each and I found 6! Perfect for today, huh?)

Bet you weren't counting on getting a song and a treat just for reading this post, huh? ;-)

Hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend!

It sounds like you had a wonderful Memorial Day. I love how the songs are made up to sing about the veggies LOL That's something my boys would have loved to do when they were growing up. Your cupcakes certainly look delicious! I hope you have a great day.
