I have two sick kids at home. One has pneumonia and the other, double ear infections. They were pretty sick but now with the medication kicking in, they are on their way to recovery. This is, of course exactly what I want but with the symptoms lessening, it means their demands, arguments and grumpiness are increasing. On days like these, stuck in the house with two tired grumpy children, I wonder what Ma Ingalls would do.
God bless you Mrs. Ingalls. I don’t know how you did it!
Here’s what we did today:

Here’s the recipe:
2 cups of orange or grapefruit juice ( I used a mix)
1/2 cup sugar
2 envelopes of gelatin
pour 1/2 cup of juice into a bowl. Sprinkle gelatin over and allow to dissolve.
Pour remaining juice into a pan with the sugar. Bring to a boil just to dissolve sugar. Take off heat and stir in the softened gelatin. Stir to dissolve.
Pour into an 8 x 8 baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Cut and serve. Then enjoy.
And did some crafting
