101 Reasons To Smile

#11: How To Make A Little Boy Smile

I decided this morning that I was officially better from my cold. So I woke up early-ish and made muffins for the fam. I wanted to make a certain someone smile!

Rasberries! (Apparently that's not how you spell it? Looks right to me!)

Well, the batter looked kind of boring, so I decided to make it purple/blue just for fun. That required food coloring which I have some sort of love affair with.

I don't know if it was the rasberries colouring the batter or the food colouring...

Then I baked them.

Fred Hoko Boger-Boger and muffin

And yes, they did make this ^ little dude smile! Which is kind of the point of this post. So all  you have to do to get your little brother to smile is wake up early-ish and make muffins. Oh! And add food colouring! I think that’s what really brought on the grin!

Blue Fireworks!!!

Look at all that Blue No. 2! Did you know it’s the same dye they use to dye blue jeans with? Yum! I’ve always wanted to know what clothes taste like. =)
