"I can't eat my left-overs, there is a finger in my mashed potatoes!!"

Like most other families in the United States, we ate left-overs after Turkey day for breakfast, lunch and dinner for a couple of days... until we were all turkeyed out!!!! I guess Sarah is a bit more cleaver than the rest of us because on Friday night she came up to me and said, "I can't eat my left-overs because there is a finger in my mashed potatoes!!" I looked down and about jumped out of my seat at the wiggling finger covered in mashed potatoes looking back at me. It took me a minute to realize that this sad-faced six-year-old had just outwitted her mom.

Here is Sarah looking sad as she brings over her plate of food with a finger in it... (What an actress!)
Here is the real Sarah as you can see by her myschivious smile and a picture that shows how her trick was accomplished. That is what I get for using paper plates for left-overs!
And of course, Will wanted to try it to and you can see my sneaky little girl in the background proud as punch at her practical joke.
Here is what her mom told her, "Well, you had better lick your finger off and get eating, 'cause you are not getting out of eating left-overs that easily!!" (Aren't I soooooo sweet?!!!!)

Sarah, Sarah, Sarah. What a character. Almost as good as the carrot and the salad dressing - "Goin' to the ranch."
