Yesterday was a good day for my son, Spencer. He got the cast off his arm. The poor kid has had it on for 5 weeks. Yesterday he was sore and when he went to bed he said to me ” Mommy my brain is confused. I looked at my arm and saw no cast, I thought to myself, did I break it off? Then I remember that I had it taken off today!” Today it is doing well and he still has 2 more weeks of babying it and protecting it and then he should be good.
Best post of the week was this meme post. It is still funny!

Join all seven dwarfs for an adventure as big as they are small! It’s the eve of Princess Rose’s 18th birthday. Everyone in the kingdom has come to Fantabularasa Castle to celebrate including Snow White, the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella and Red Riding Hood. But just before the stroke of midnight Bobo, the youngest dwarf, accidentally pricks the finger of Princess Rose (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty) with a cursed needle and sends the kingdom into a century-long slumber! To find Rose’s true love Jack to save her with a kiss, Bobo and the other six dwarfs must go on a treacherous journey, face a fiery dragon and outwit the jealous, scheming and evil witch, Dellamorta!

Author: Canadian Basics
1 (14 oz.) can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 tablespoon peppermint extract
Green or red food coloring (optional)
6 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 pounds chocolate melts *
LINE baking sheets with wax paper.
COMBINE sweetened condensed milk, peppermint extract and food coloring, if desired, in large bowl. Add 6 cups powdered sugar; beat on low speed until smooth and well blended. Turn mixture onto surface sprinkled with powdered sugar.
KNEAD lightly to form smooth ball. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Flatten each ball into a 1 1/2-inch patty.
