Makin' Shakes!!

The other night dad was gone with a couple of the older girls and we decided to make some banana shakes. Jenna saw me in the kitchen using some new gadget she'd probably not seen before. She was intrigued and went to get her stool so she could see better. She stood up on it to watch me, but as soon as I turned the blender on, she jumped back nearly falling off her little stool. Clearly it made way more noise than she expected and it startled her. Then she was all smiles and wanted to help me make it go! At that point, Hannah also became interested and joined us. I poured the drinks into their glasses and set them on the table with a nice big straw. Although Jenna loves ice-cream, I guess she was surprised by the coldness of her new drink. I doubt she'd ever had a shake. Anyway, I was cleaning up in the kitchen, and after a few minutes, Jenna brought her drink in and motioned for me to put it into the microwave to make it warm!! Something she often did previously with milk when it wasn't at least room temperature. She does not drink hers cold from the fridge! I just thought you might enjoy that little story!

  1. SO funny about the milk temperature! I like mine as cold as possible. In ice cream form is best ;-)
    That story reminds me of my mom making us malts when we were little. Oh what sweet memories. It didn't have malt flavoring or anything, just milk and ice cream ... but how sweet it was! Looks like the girls enjoyed it!
