F(Ph)at Tuesday

Made 100 or so faschnauts with my friend.  Not only did I have a good time, but...took some into the kids' classes, took some to Travis's work and ate myself silly.  Wyatt's teacher had me explain the holiday since so few students knew its origins.  She then told me how nice it is for me to come in because not all of her students have as enriching lives as Wyatt's.  I love getting complements, just another form of positive reenforcement. 

And although they may be unhealthy and disparaged by others, I can't help but think this is just one more mommy memory my kids will have to tuck away in their childhood memory banks.  And guess what I'll fry dough any day to give my kids an enriching and happy memory filled childhood :)
