First Popsicle!!

Gma McDonald has a bunch of really Big and Really Juicy yummy watermelon growing in her garden. We have a bunch in our fridge and needed something to do with it so it wouldn't go bad. I had recently read on a yahoo group I belong to about making watermelon we did just that. I took out the food processor and put it on the island, while Kelsey slid the kitchen chair up to it. I loaded it with watermelon and put the top on. Quickly I jumped back to take a picture and told Kels not to touch any buttons. As soon as I snapped a picture, she hit the button to turn it on. (She's made pesto and some other things with me before using the food processor). We then strained it through a sieve and poured it into some popsicle molds I bought a few months back at a kitchen outlet store. We put them in the freezer and I told her after nap she could have one.

She was very excited after nap to be able to eat her popsicles, even though she had no clue what it was. She was so cute hesitantly licking it..and then I showed her how to take a bite. She had the biggest smile on her face.
After she was finished she ended up throwing a huge tantrum b/c she wanted another one...yeah, that was Fun!!
