Peanut Butter and Paper Hats

We have been eating Peanut Butter from the number starting "2111"! I heard about the peanut butter recall a few days ago but didn't worry too much about it because we get our peanut butter from Sam's Club in the huge economy size container and they weren't mentioned in the recall. With so many people in the house it is a staple! The kids even had peanut butter and banana sandwiches yesterday for lunch and I didn't think much of it until today when I figured what would it hurt to check the number. Sure enough, there on the side in hardly distinguishable numbers was "2111...". I called ConAgra to find out what I should do and they said I still have to send in the lid with the number on a piece of paper. So, we throw out what little is left in the 6 lb. container and hopefully get a full refund. I doubt anyone will be getting sick anytime soon because nobody got sick through the first 5 lbs. but just to be on the safe side, we will be getting new peanut butter the next time we get groceries! :)

Now, on to the paper hats! :) Luke has been folding a lot of paper airplanes lately with Daddy. They got a book of them for Christmas and Luke just loves to do anything with paper, from folding, to painting, to drawing. So, in his paper folding craze this week, he has discovered - all on his own - how to fold a paper hat! He's been making hats for the dog, and for Papa John, and for Daddy and all his and Jozie's dolls and stuffed animals. This morning I mentioned that he could make a bigger one out of old newspaper so now his fingers are black from folding them! What a kid, at least he is content to fold old newspapers and doesn't require special colored paper - yet!

We have the 2111 number too. The reason we looked? Yesterday the baby-sitter gave the kids a PB&J sandwich. Today Gabe's been saying his belly hurts and had the runs once. I sure hope it isn't from the peanut butter. The other two seem fine, so maybe its just a fluke but it sure had us worried. Zach was so ticked he just threw it all away! Glad you guys didn't get sick!

Arrgh! I just wrote a comment and it erased it! Anyway we got the same one from sam's with the 2111# on it, but it was already half finished and no one has been sick. But to be safe we threw it away, our oldest was sick with salmonella poisoning from mcdonalds a year ago, she was in the hospital for a week, and it was NOT fun!
