We love KANDIE!

We really do have the best friends. Over the years, the people that stick it out with our family have become extended members of it. We are truly blessed. THAT SAID...I really think some of them have it out for me (Kandie) and look for ways to make me grow gray hair, wrinkle and drink more.  (Diet Pepsi...)  Do you really like me?  Or is it just fun to see me SUFFER?  I love you dearly Kandie... you know I'm just being dramatic.  Or am I?

Today, a dearly beloved friend had a bright idea.  I should know by now that it could mean trouble for me whenever said dearly beloved has a bright idea... but I went along with it.  She was excited, had something for my kids and couldn't wait to give it to them.  We went straight to her house and found ourselves in a snowball launching fight for the next 30 minutes!  Kandie had been to the dollar store and someone there had told her these colorful plastic objects were "snowball launchers."  She proceeded to pile quite a few into her cart and brought them home.  As soon as the unsuspecting kids started piling out of my car, they were pummeled with snow!  What a find!  They played and played...



The fun didn't end there though...on the way home- the fun was JUST BEGINNING!  It didn't take long at all for the kids to figure out that the "snowball launchers" weren't only for snow.  Did you ever watch any of the World Cup?  In Utah these colorful objects are great for launching snow... in South Africa,  these objects are the most annoying noise makers you have EVER had to listen to.  My house is South Africa.  You know what?  It got worse when Jon got home!  He's always been good at tooting his own horn...
