I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream...


I have been eyeballing the ice cream balls.  Haven't heard of them?
It may look like a hamster ball but it's so much more!  It's so simple...
One end gets ice and a cup of ice cream salt.  The other end gets a quart of half and half, 3/4 cup sugar, and a table spoon of vanilla.  Then you shake it, roll it, toss it etc for 30 minutes.

I actually bid on one on Ebay the other day.  $30 free shipping.  That's a good deal!  They're closer to $50 in the store.  I just thought it would be a super fun toy/treat for 5 kiddos in the summer time!

This morning the kids and I went across the street to the old elementary building for a church's sale to raise funds for their youth group.

Guess what I found, in the box, brand new, never used....

Go ahead, guess.  I'll give you a hint:

 The sprinkles on the ice cream is that it had this adorable little sticker on it:
Yep, just fifty cents!  I snatched it up immediately and headed to Wal-Mart on the way home.

 It was a huge hit!  We all had our fill and even Daddy took a few bites.  We can't wait to try other flavors vs vanilla.  They had so much fun rolling the ball around once they realized it was going to take 30 minutes and everyone would have their fair share of time rolling it ;)

It's fair to say that:
I spent $15 today and ended up with a trunk full of beautiful things for the new place.  So excited!!
