Lulu has a plan she's putting into action. Look at the look of determination on her face.
She wants Killian on her scooter.
And, if he jumps off she will put him right back on. She did this about ten times.
Look at the look of satisfaction she has when she has him on the scooter.

Empty the dustpan, poison the moth,
Hang out the washing, make up the bed,
Sew on a button and butter the bread.
Where is the mother whose house is so shocking?
She's up in the nursery, blissfully rocking.
Oh, I've grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue,
Lullabye, rockabye, lullabye loo.
Dishes are waiting and bills are past due
Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo
The shopping's not done and there's nothing for stew
And out in the yard there's a hullabaloo
But I'm playing Kanga and this is my Roo
Look! Aren't his eyes the most wonderful hue?
Lullabye, rockaby lullabye loo.
The cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow
But children grow up as I've learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs; Dust go to sleep!
I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep.

Anytime I bring this potato salad to potlucks, church, work, family functions, I get several requests for the recipe. I even had a person stop me in the grocery store and ask why I haven't given them the recipe yet. Really, I don't have a recipe, it's just a way of making it that my mother showed me. But I will give you the main idea.
These are ingredients for a large crowd, you can cut them in half for family size.
5lbs of red potatoes sliced into quarters and boiled till soft but not mushy. If I'm using red potatoes I never peel them, just throw them into the salad peel and all. Russet potatoes I peel.
4 hard boiled eggs chopped
1/2 cup of chopped dill pickles
1/2 cup dill pickle juice
3 stalks of celery chopped
1/2 cup of sweet onion chopped
1tbs of salt
1tbs of mustard (for color)
1 8oz container of sour cream
1 small 12oz jar of mayonnaise
Cube the potatoes add the remaining ingredients in a large bowl mix and refrigerate.

Make sure to rinse off all the seeds. I even use the outside hose for rinsing them. Take one pound of bacon and cut it into thirds and a container of soft cream cheese.
Wrap with bacon and stick two tooth picks in each one.
