A few snow flakes have fallen in Georgia. This has caused a state of emergency in which schools and businesses have closed. My kids have been out for a few days. And you know what that means: Mama gets pestered with the inevitable, "Mom, I'm bored!"
So, yesterday, we came up with the brilliant idea to make brownies. My daughter did most of the baking. Soon the house smelled like chocolaty brownies. I went upstairs to fold laundry while the brownies finished baking. About ten minutes later, I heard a lot of voices. . . and they weren't ones I recognized.
I went downstairs to see what was going on. You wouldn't believe what was in my kitchen. Six kids! "Where did you come from?" I asked.
One of them grinned. "We heard you were making brownies, and wanted wanted to try some!"
Oh. Apparently word travels fast in my neighborhood!
So, ladies and gentlemen, if you want a house full of kids, just bake brownies.
Bubba did a Facebook invite (lol).ReplyDelete
Hi Sherry, I posted the surprise on my blog.
I loved your story, Peaches! It brought a tear to my eye. HUGS!!!Delete
The world works like that.Delete
I wouldn't tell anyone because I would want the brownies all to myself.ReplyDelete
Haha! I would never get away with keeping them a secret!Delete
I'll never make brownies again...ReplyDelete
Kids probably aren't stealthy enough for the Ninja's pad!Delete
Sounds like a fun day!ReplyDelete
It was once the brownies were baked!Delete
LOL. Your kitchen is the hot spot on the block!ReplyDelete
Yes, it was!Delete
or not bake brownies and not have a house full of kids. I prefer this one, but I'm old and grouchy, so.......ReplyDelete
You need a lot of patience with that many kids!Delete
I could send you ear plugs.ReplyDelete
That would be great!Delete
it's funny how schools and business get closes in USA when the snow falls... We've never in my whole life had closed schools ... no snow, no rain, no storms, not even during bombings ...ReplyDelete
It's pathetic down here in the south. We rarely closed schools in Cleveland.Delete
What fun! Hmmm...brownies are magnets for kids!ReplyDelete
Yes, they are!Delete
What fun for your children, snow and brownies.ReplyDelete
Except there wasn't any snow! ;0)Delete
Be aware very soon all the neighborhood kids would know your secrets!ReplyDelete
That's a scary thought!Delete
Thankfully I don't eat brownies.ReplyDelete
Probably better off!Delete
smells travel faster, especially chocolate smells!ReplyDelete
Those were some good smells!Delete
Who can resist brownies? :)ReplyDelete
No, thank you. I don't mean the brownies. I mean the kids. My days of having a wad of kids in my house are over.ReplyDelete
You don't like chaos and mayhem? ;0)Delete
Yep, that'll do it every time.ReplyDelete
Chocolate chip cookies work pretty well, too.Delete
Oh how cute! Kids flocking into your kitchen from the smell of brownies. I'm impressed that your daughter did most of the baking, too. I always make a mess when I bake (or used to bake).ReplyDelete
She likes to bake.Delete
And mam did you share the brownies among all the children after baking. Looks you are having wondeful time with your kids.ReplyDelete
Of course. In fact, I only got a teeny tiny piece.Delete
Sounds like loads of FUN!ReplyDelete
Was Bubba the cheerleader of the Brownie Gang?
Haha! He's more like the ring leader!Delete
So when a kid goes missing, make some brownies. ;)ReplyDelete
That sounds like a good trapReplyDelete
It was a tasty one, anyway!Delete
I think the kids followed the scent of brownies. That's so sweet of her to bake..sounds fun.😊ReplyDelete
