Popcorn Balls-The Episode

Kids are fickle, ya know that? For almost a year now, every month or so Kaylea has been asking me to make popcorn balls with her, because she’s never made them before, and they sounded fun. I dislike making popcorn balls, but if I have to make them, I prefer to make them in the fall for some reason, so I finally caved and planned the popcorn ball-making for this weekend. I figured it a perfect use of those marshmallows we made last weekend, and I was right (the recipe called for 5 cups of marshmallows, exactly the amount we had made-cool huh?). So I round up the crew after church this morning, and we proceeded to start the recipe. About halfway through (and it’s NOT a long process mind you), I can tell K’s interest is waning. When asked, she informs me that it wasn’t exactly as fun as she thought it would be…go figure, lol. Anyway, I did get some funny pics, so here they are for your viewing pleasure:

K mixing, mixing, and more mixing. Oh, and getting red food coloring all over herself in the process, hehe. (She decided she wanted pink popcorn balls!)

K realizing she forgot to BUTTER her hands like the recipe calls for her to do…silly girl!
