Food is not a Surprise

Sunday night we had "Happy Sunday to Us!" party. (Do you really need an excuse to have a party?) Andy had been to the market, picked up crab for Max, shrimp for Hannah, and big chunk of 4-layer chocolate cake to share. When dinner was over we broke out the cake and told the kids, "We have a surprise for you! Come to the kitchen!" The three kids closed their eyes... the suspense was killing them! We lit a candle on top... "okay, open your eyes!"

"Yay! Cake!" yell Hannah & Nicky.

Max looked at us like we were dumb as rocks. "Food is not a surprise for me."

Andy & I exchange looks that say, "We are dumb as rocks." Then we open the emergency new toy cupboard and produce a new surprise. We were rewarded with a smile. Whew!

What else is in that cupboard? Do you have any other emergency stashes around the house that people should know about? I'm oddly intrigued by this concept of emergency stashes.
