The Wicked Witch !!

When my two youngest daughters were
about 3 and almost 5 years old we
had just moved into a new house.
Things were chaos and we were always
very busy, well they were busy
{this is code for always getting into something}
I was lucky enough to find 2 rather
huge brass kettles at a yard sale
they really are quite large. They were very
tarnished and I was toiling to clean them up
with a very messy lemon and salt solution
Anyhow, dear daughter Rhiannon who was 3, comes by and
is nattering and bugging and wanting a snack
tattling on older sis and all that.
Then she looks and she says
"What are you doing that for"
as she peers into the pot that comes almost
up to her neck.

.....so, I take a minute and look at that sweet little
face and I say..."Well I am cleaning it out,
its pretty big isn't it?" she nods
Then I put on my best Wicked Witch's voice and I say
"And I think You My Pretty and your big
Sister will fit right in!!!"
She looks at me, her eyes get HUGE
then she SCREAMS in a voice I had
never heard.....
"Santanna...she's gonna cook us and eat us"
Then she takes off running to find her sister.
We still laugh about that one.
I love this cartoon

a long time ago
I really need to scrapbook more Halloween photos

Anyhow Happy Howling and
 be careful who dresses you this year

I LOVE the 'Kids say the darndest things' type stories!!! LOL~ Great witchy trick or treat comic too. Once we were on a long road trip and my dd told us she was hungry from the back seat of the car. I offered her some carrot sticks, apple slices or crackers and she said, "I want REAL food, not party food!" LOL

Wow, that a lucky find Pam, it makes you wonder why the previous owners of the pot wanted to get rid of something so beautiful. I love the story about you daughter….bet she gets embarrassed when you mention it now.

Loving all your LO’s

Happy Crafting!

I laughed at the big pot story - are you sure you haven't got Welsh or Irish ancestry in you somewhere as you have an amazing talent for weaving a story!! As does your daughter too, having just read your other blog :)
It's wonderful to hear of someone else who has stones that have followed her home - my house is full of these little 'pets' too!
Hugs, LLJ #43 xx
