Here we are playing in the corn.

Mmmmm..... Brownies

So last night for an FHE treat Joseph thought we should make brownies. He enjoyed helping me make them but his favorite part by far was that he got to lick the spoon when we were all done. He could hardly wait for Ben to get home so we could have some and when I said he had to have supper first he was very disappointed, but he eventually got one and was very happy.

Tommy Toes

I went to the store the other night and brought home some tomatoes. Well Joseph was in the kitchen with Ben and saw the tomatoes on the counter and asked Ben what they were.

Ben was joking with Joseph and told him they were called tommy toes, so Joseph immediately looks at me and says mama can you say tommy toes. I responded with Tomatoes and Joseph got so mad at me and once again said no mama it's tommy toes.

So it has become a joke in our home that tomatoes are really tommy toes. Joseph and Ben are really enjoying teasing me about saying tomatoes the "wrong way".
