Can you believe it? We didn't even get this much at Halloween! There are several lollipops (which are okay, until he starts to bite them), JuJu Fruits (WAY too sticky and hard), at least 10 chocolate hearts, several bags of M&M's, Peanut Butter Cups, Jolly Ranchers (are you kiding me?) and Marshmallow things. I couldn't believe that some of these parents would give this stuff to other children, that are younger than two! I wouldn't dream of giving Andrew some of this stuff, simply for the choking hazard, nevermind the sugar factor! Try explaining to an 18-month old that, no, you don't bite or chew a Jolly Rancher, you keep it in your mouth until it's gone. Please!
I know I must sound like a Scrooge, but I just couldn't get over the fact that we even had this party in the first place. None of the kids have any idea what Valentine's Day is, why they had a party, and what all those square pieces of paper even mean! There wasn't even a lesson on God's love! It's a church Mother's Morning Out! It just seems like a missed opportunity for a good lesson on love, instead of giving out potentially hazardous candy to small (very small!) children!
His newest 'hobby' is falling down. And of course, its so much more fun when you fall down in a big pile of leaves!

Just giving y'all the heads up! Happy clipping!

Here's the ingredients:
8-10 tortillas, 10" size
3 cups of diced potatos
1 cup sour cream
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup cooked bacon, crumbled
1/2 chopped green onions
2 tbsp melted butter
Cook the potatos according to the package directions. I put mine in a skillet with a small amount of oil, and cooked them until they started to brown and get a tad bit crispy. Then, mix all ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Warm up your tortillas. Spread the potato mixture all over the tortilla. The thickness depends on how full you want your burrito to be, I did about1/3-1/2" all over. Then roll the tortilla burrito style, and place on a cookie sheet. Place burritos 1" apart, then lightly brush the melted butter on the tops. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes. Let them cool down for a minute or two, then slice them in 1/2's or 1/3's diagonally (like the Cool Wrap at ChickFilA, this is hard to explain!)
Serve with a little more sour cream and some salsa to dip it in. Y'all, it's sinful. And I used the fat free sour cream and wiped the grease off the bacon, so it was a little less fattening.
