Ok so here is my onion story. My granddaughter (18mos) loves onions. I was chopping one just recently. Got on the phone, came back into the room and between her and her 3yr old brother, the onion was almost gone!
She is trying to say her brother's name, Austin. Where these two words sound alike to her, I do not know, but she comes out with a garbled version that sounds just like "ONION". Austin=Onion????? He asked me "Ging Ging, am I her onion now or her brother AUSTIN?"
We went to mother's for dinner. She had turkey, ham, mash potatoes and both turkey and ham gravy, candied sweet potatoes, lima beans, corn, dressing, and rolls. For dessert she had pumpkin pie, pumpkin roll and cinnomon rolls!! It was all super yummy, and I am super stuffed!!
We're FINALLY getting SNOW!!!!!!!! So excited!! If it will just stick a touch, we can have our first snow celebration tonight. If that's the case, we will have ham and potato soup, rolls, and then gingerbread with orange fluff for dessert!! LOVE the fisrt snow!! Hoping for a long snowy winter this year!!!
Hope everyone has/had a great day shopping!! I was sleeping so good while all you crazies were out there!! Have a great weekend!!
