My three stooges

I bet you didn't know that eleventeen is a number, I know a little girl who never misses it! Or that things are not seen in our house they're sawed. And the word exciting is used to show excitement to do something, for example, on the way to Chuck E. Cheese's same said girl kept exclaiming "I'm so exciting!" I have to give it to her she is that as well. I can't believe how fast they are growing and how fleeting this highly entertaining learning of the English language stage is! Caden is almost completely out of it. I am surprised at how well he speaks now, and how much he knows!

Cute as a button

My mom has been telling me I need to make these buttons. I think they are called buttons because the first person to make them said; "these things are cute as a button!"
As my son calls them "buttons you can eat!"

What you need:
Square pretzels
Hershey kisses
Peanut butter M&M's

How it's done:
Preheat oven to 200
place pretzels on a cookie sheet. Top each with a kiss (Most time consuming part, does anyone know why they do not sell unwrapped kisses?) Put in oven for about 5 minutes, just until the kiss is soft enough to press an M&M in it. Press one M&M in each.
Fun and easy for the kids to make. Pressing the M&M's in was a little tricky for them but we had fun.

A photographer in the making

This past December my son had his first Christmas program. In the rush to get us all there on time I forgot my camera :( When I realized this I mentioned it aloud. "Oh don't worry mommy! I have mine," my daughter pipes up from the back seat. I turn to look at her holding up her toy camera with the hugest smile, so happy she could save the day. She brought it in and proudly took several pictures, all of which I believe would have been worth sharing had they been on my camera and not her Little Mermaid talking one. Since the camera we got her for her birthday turned out to be junk, here is a photo she took on her own with my camera.
