Oh NO I have turned the Big 4-0!!


Yes...I just turned the big 4-0 today..yikes!  I am feeling pretty old, but my little guys did something for me today that has already made this one of the best birthdays ever! They came up with a birthday cake recipe written out here (so cute)...


and created me a cake all on their own today. Clean up was not included, but that is totally okay!:)

I found there ingredients pulled out this morning & a lot of planning went into this cake of theirs. They mixed Hershey's spread with peanut butter for the frosting. They layered and frosted 2 premade pound cakes topped with chopped Reese's.


They know how much I love my Reese's!:)  We haven't had our celebration just yet, but they really wanted me to go ahead and share their recipe & cake. My 3 year old colored the numbers & they taped them on sticks. They also have to add a hand full of marshmallows of course!


Here are my little chefs with the fun cake they created me. I feel so special & blessed to have my caring & creative family!


Good job boys...I love it SO much!!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Fruit Snack AND Contest!



The World of Eric Carle recently contacted us to help promote their Very Hungry Caterpillar Contest & we are very excited to be a part of it! My boys have always loved all of their books!

This year they are celebrating their 45th anniversary of Eric Carle's most famous book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.


We created this fun snack for them to help celebrate & you can enter their contest by creating a Very Hungry Caterpillar inspired snack of your own (see details below)!  

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Fruit Snack
(makes 2)

1 Golden Delicious Apple
1 Green Pear
1 Granny Smith Apple
2 Kiwis 
1 Strawberry
6 Raisins

Start out by slicing each piece of fruit using a knife. Then cut the ends to fit & match up. Line them up on a plate. Place on the strawberry for the head.  We cut a small piece from a apple to make the eyes & antennas (break a toothpick in half to attach). We used a mini chocolate chip for the nose. We cut the raisins in half & pressed them together for feet...so easy & cute.

We used different fruits to give different textures & color. Plus...this is a great way to get your little ones to try new foods!:)


Now for the Very Hungry Caterpillar-inspired snack contest!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle JELL-O Cups


My boys wanted a fun treat today & we came up with these fun Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle JELL-O Cups! These are so easy to make & would also be great for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle parties as well!  

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle JELL-O Cups

Lemon-Lime JELL-O Cups
Fruit By the Foot Strawberry Fruit Roll Ups (Betty Crocker)
Edible Candy Eyes
Black Edible Marker


Pull off the tops from the Jell-o cups. Pull off the strawberry fruit roll up from the paper & wrap around the Jello tying on the side.  Cut the ends using kitchen scissors. We colored our edible eyes with black edible marker to look more like the turtle eyes.  Just press the eyes on the fruit roll up in the front. We drew on a mouth with the marker & then add a small piece of fruit roll up.


Here is a close up...


Your little TNMT fans will just love this & they can also help make this themselves!  


Here is another fun TNMT creations we made.
