Slushies and the Trophy

Playing off our frozen treat theme...

I found a fun way to make your own slushies. ( FYI: THIS WAS NOT MY ORIGINAL IDEA. I have so few of those.) I stole the idea here.

All you do is take a large Ziploc bag, and fill it with about 2 cups of ice and 3/4 cup of rock salt. In a smaller Ziploc, pour a little more than a cup of your favorite soft drink. My kids love root beer, so that's what we used. Now put the little Ziploc in the big Ziploc and shake. My kids loved doing this. It only took about 5 minutes to work, and voila! Rootbeer slushies.

Matt had just gotten home from a golf tournament and got in on the action.

And speaking of that golf tournament, Matt's group won second place and brought home a little trophy. He sat it on a shelf, and I might have made just a little fun of it. But sometime that night it went missing. He immediately accused me of swiping it. I plead my innocence, but I don't think he believed me. Later when we went to check on the kids before getting in bed, we found this....

You can think it's weird. We did. And we laughed. A lot. And then this morning, when I went looking for it, I found her eating breakfast with it. No, I'm not kidding.

Oh, my sweet Estella Dru. How I love your quirky little ways. At least Matt has found someone with a great appreciation for his accomplishment. But I think he may have lost his trophy.

OH, how sweet! She obviously thinks it's important. It warms my heart! That Dru, what will she do next. She needs a blog of her own.
