Bugs in the Kitchen

There is an infestation of lady bugs in my kitchen.  Chocolate lady bugs.  I had given my daughter a candy factory kit for Christmas, because we all know how much she likes chocolate (recall the chocolate birthday party she had in October).

I gave her the chocolate pieces, the coconut oil, and all the other doo dads and what nots that go with candy production.  "Have at it, kid."

I let her loose in the kitchen and went about my business.  A half hour later, I checked to see how she was doing.  On the counter, were four trays of chocolate lady bugs.

"Mom, can you help cut the red aluminum foil so I can wrap the rest of these?"

"Um, sure."  I grabbed some foil and itty bitty lady bug legs and assembled the creatures.

We now have no less than 48 lady bugs on the kitchen counter and in the refrigerator.  I think I need to call an exterminator!

  3. Chocolate bugs are the best kind of bugs to have in the kitchen, if you have to have any at all! ;)

  4. If you have to have bugs in your kitchen, the chocolate kind sound like the best! And my sister would totally be freaking out. She hates ladybugs.

  5. My sister got my son a little Halloween craft kit with foam pieces you could use to make spiders with strings to hang them. We spent days playing 'spider factory' - no two were alike - we tapped them to the dining room chandelier, to doorways, everywhere. There were probably 50. :)

    1. That sounds fantastic! I haven't made my own spiders, but for halloween, I drape webs all over the house and add creepy spiders. Very fun!
