Antics from Carter and Kate.

Last night Carter and Kate were down in the family room by themselves. I called down to Carter and asked what they were doing. He said, "You can't see, I not gonna tell you." Instantly I knew they were causing trouble. Sure enough, when I got down there, poor little Mimzy's cage was scattered from one end of the room to the other, and Mimzy was no where to be found. Loverly, just what I needed, a guinea pig on the loose. Thankfully she had taken cover underneath a recliner and when I lifted it up she actually came to me.

Then, this morning they were snooping in my freezer. A few days ago I made one of Jarom's mom's recipes called Butter Balls. Basically it's just bread crumbs, TONS of butter, eggs, allspice, and water. Then you squeeze them into little balls; they pretty much look like meatballs. We put them in homemade chicken noodle soup, they're kind of like dumplings I guess. Anyway, I had made a big batch of them and had put them in a baggie in the freezer. From time to time, I make cookie dough, roll it into balls and freeze those as well. Apparently Carter and Kate thought they were getting cookie dough, but instead got a butter ball. Of course they couldn't stop at just one. I am sure they were thinking, "Yuck, this cookie is nasty, maybe the next one will be better." So, after I got out of my shower this morning, I found half eaten butter balls all around the kitchen. I was laughing so hard imagining their faces as they discovered the nasty "cookies" that it didn't even make me mad.

You gave us all a good chuckle! Reminds me of the time I was little that I discoverd baking chocolate (looked like chocolate, smelled like chocolate, in a shiny wrapper, tasted like poo!).

Life would be way too boring without those two!

I love that they kept trying more butter balls in the hopes of finding cookie dough-- so hilarious! They're such clever little stinkers!
