What's On My Kitchen Table?

I live in a small house that is the perfect size for our little family but not exactly the perfect size for all my projects and the collection of supplies that goes with them. My desk has usually got at least one work (let's be honest's more like many) of art spread all over it. Therefore, my kitchen table, which is also quite small, frequently ends up being project central when I have something big in the works. So, in what might become a regular (definition of regular for me: whenever I take a moment to snap a picture, download it, post it, write about it, and still have time to actually finish the project) feature here at my little neglected blog, I ask, "What's On My Kitchen Table?"

Drum roll please....

It's juice box robots!!!!

My kids and I are making these for my son to take to preschool for his birthday treats. I saw the idea posted on Pinterest (oh, how I love Pinterest!) HERE from THIS clever blog and knew they were the perfect treat for my little guy. He is a very picky eater and even doesn't like most treats, but he LOVES apple juice, Laffy Taffy, and chocolate. My daughter read all of the Laffy Taffy jokes as we went along and both my kids collaborated on their own joke. "What do you call a Laffy Taffy with no jokes?"


That's right they are hilarious. So stay tuned for future installments of "What's On My Kitchen Table?" Odds are that it's not dinner! (Ha! My kids aren't the only funny ones around here!)


  1. SOOOOOOOO Cool! I am sure the kids will love them! I hope you guys have a fun birthday weekend with Jake! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! We miss you guys!

  2. Jolene,

    These are so cute, I'll bet you had a blast making them. Cute joke...but true. Without those great jokes we may as well get regular taffy. I like the idea of a recurring theme of "Whats on your kitchen table." Thats a great idea. There is nothing exciting on mine or I'd report it too!

  3. I agree with Jessie---SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Cool! Jake is blessed to have such a wonderful family. And we are blessed to have Jake! He is so cute and funny and smart. You never know what he is going to say (or do).
