Sunday Stuff

Today was a good big plans just doing stuff as it popped up...I did want to share a few small highlights of the day though!

The kids and I made these yummy PB&Chocolate eggs...we bought the kit from Hobby Lobby - it had everything in it...candy melts and mold.  If you are looking for a quick and easy fun Easter treat to make with this is it.  They are yummy and simple and quick and they look so cute.  Our kit had eggs and chicks in it too, 40% off $5.99 too...can't beat that!  They will look darling packaged in with Easter grass on a cute plate to give to friends, teachers or neighbors.

Another fun project we did today were tissue paper flowers.  Again, super easy, super cute and perfect for kids to help with.  We actually made these flowers to use on the bulletin board at Campbell's school.  I decorate it/change it out for PTO - when I switch out the board again though, the cute flowers will be coming home with me!  Again, this was a kit I found at the Teacher's Supply Store - $5.99 for a kit that makes 7 flowers.  These would be so fun for a party too...or a craft at a kids party.

And for dinner I tried a new recipe - simple and yummy!  It is Spaghetti with Artichokes and Pancetta.  I served it with a chopped green salad, crusty bread and a nice Pinot Grigio!  Yummy!  You can get the recipe at it is a Mario Batolli recipe. 

Hope your week starts off great!

You've been busy! I need to get those molds - but we don't have a Hobby Lobby. Need to check out the Michael's near us.

Our family went bowling today - our little guy wants his birthday there this year. Thought about your son's party. I need to check out your post again. :)

Hope you have a good week!
