Aunt Stacy

Yesterday my cute sister came over to hang out for a bit. We had lunch, and then she told Cannon she had some projects for him to help with.
Now, remember, she is BRAVE. Both projects were messy, but she is a Jr. High Spanish teacher, so nothing scares her.

The first one was a food storage project. Did you know you can store EGGS UNREFRIDGERATED for 2 YEARS????? I didn't believe it either. You coat them with vaseline and store them pointy side down. Then when you're ready to use them you just wash it off with soap and water. If you want to test the egg, put it in water. If it sinks, it's fine. If it floats, it has air in it and you should chuck it. Amazing!

Next, she asked Cannon to paint her toenails. With RED polish!! Yipes! They looked like bloody stumps afterwards, but Cannon was pleased.

What a fun day with my sister!

I have NEVER heard of doing that with eggs! That is amazing, and I'm totally going to try it.

What a cute sister you have! I like to paint my nieces' toenails and fingernails, but I have yet to be brave enough to let them paint mine!! :o) And thanks for the tip about the food storage...storing eggs unrefridgerated sounds like a death wish, but I'm willing to give it a try!

Your family is so great! They just make me happy.

Maybe Cannon can give us all pedicures one day...sounds good to me!
