Welcome to Whozat's World. Sit back, relax and enjoy the show . . . .

Donation

Peeper and I counted her allowance today, and she decided that it was time to donate the $1.75 in her “Share” jar to the Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter. She dictated a letter to accompany the donation. I wrote down her words exactly. Then she drew some pictures for the animals, and I added a cover letter.

I thought it best to explain.

I hope you can read it, she was talking pretty fast and I was trying to keep up.

She really said “sincerely.”

Baby Lynx. Thank you, Wild Kratts.

Plundering

Peeper and I did some grocery shopping today. She was dressed like this.

Welcome to Taaaarrrrget!

On the lookout for some great deals.

Stung!

Why do bees love my baby so much?

She and Shrike were running around in the backyard this evening, and she fell down. On two bees. Both of whom stung her.

This is not the first time she’s been stung. Or the second. Or third. Or zeroth, for that matter – I stepped on one and got stung when I was pregnant with her.

Scoopapalooza

This afternoon we went to one of the first events of our two-week-long local festival – Scoopapalooza! It’s a fundraiser featuring ice cream. How can you argue with that?

For the admission fee, we each got a spoon and a little book of voting tickets (Best Vanilla, Best Chocolate, Best Fruit, Most Original, Best Over All). Then we went around and get small servings of ice cream from several local shops that were there, and voted on our favorites. There was also a raffle and some activities for the kiddos.

At the Zoo

Today Peeper and I, along with T and her girls, and another MOMS Club friend, went to a “wildlife park” about an hour away. There are some animals in typical zoo-like cages, and a whole bunch wandering around in an area that you view from the “safari” bus tour. My safari tour photos are in my real camera, and I’ve not dealt with them yet, but here are the ones I took with my phone.

Zany Zuke

“Wow, Peeper, look at those zucchini. They’re as big as your leg!”

“I want to measure it against my leg.”

Fireworks

Peeper and I went to a small July 4 party at home of a friend who lives literally a few yards from where the fireworks were being launched. We had to look almost straight up to see them, and when the big ones burst, they pretty much filled our field of vision.

Most of the kids were sitting with their respective parents, but Peeper spent the first several minutes of the show rolling around on the ground, saying, “Wow! Wow! Oh wow!”

At one point, she shouted, “This is really happening!”

Chili Dog Casserole

I made this for the July 4 party that we went to this evening.

Chili Dog Casserole

1 package hot dogs, sliced
2 cans chili
1/2 red onion, diced
1 can crescent roll dough
3-ish cups shredded cheddar cheese (or similar)

  2. Mix chili, hot dogs and onion in a bowl.
  3. Put 1/2 crescent roll dough in the bottom of a greased baking dish.
  4. Layer cheese, chili mix, cheese, chili mix, the remainder of the dough.
  5. Bake, covered with foil until dough is cooked (use time on the package). Top with cheese and bake until it’s melted and browned.
