Davis loves to style his own hair. He will stand in front of the mirror with the spray bottle and a comb for half and hour. He combs to the left, then he combs to the right. For a long time he wanted Wilbur Robinson hair from the movie Meet The Robinsons. I don't know whose hair he is trying to copy now, but he makes it work. He also has the "Blue Steel" look from Zoolander. Davis has had no formal training in modeling the "Blue Steel" look, but I have found information on line for those that want to learn how to do this. Click here to learn more.

Shortly after the shaker incident I decided I wanted to paint our bathroom yellow. I don't know if anyone else has painted, but colors look different from paper to the wall, not to mention lighting in the room and size of the room. Let's just say the yellow bathroom was brighter than the noon day sun. Mike has been very skeptical of my color judgement every since. (sorry no photo available, but if the was one it would be too bright to even look at.)

On Easter Sunday we went to Grandma's house for dinner and an egg hunt. The kids were looking forward to hunting for eggs. We went to a neighborhood egg hunt in Saturday and were really disappointed with the way things turned out. Davis didn't get any eggs at all! He cried when we left, and while we were at home that afternoon he would spontaneously burst into tears because he was so heart broken.

While Mike was traveling in Kansas he stopped in a local diner for dessert. That night when we spoke on the phone he couldn't stop telling me how good this dessert was. We decided to recreate it at home, and this is the recipe that we came up with...
1 quart vanilla ice cream
4 Butterfinger candy bars
Crush up your candy bars in a food processor or smash it in a plastic bag. You want them to be the consistancy of bread crumbs.
Next, in blender, mix one quarter of crushed Butterfinger bar and the quart of ice cream. This will be really thick, but don't be tempted to add any milk.
Now grab some glasses and start layering! You start with a layer of Butterfinger crumbs. Next add a layer of your ice cream. Alternate layers until you fill your glass. This makes approximatley 4 (1 cup) servings.
You can substitute any candy, or cookie for the Butterfinger and it would still be really yummy.
