SNOW DAY!

Today is our first snow day, which means NO school because of the weather! Two of my kids were jumping for joy this morning  that they didn't have to go to school today and the third one was just as excited even though it doesn't affect her! ;) So, what have we been doing all day? Not much..which is nice. The kids have been watching movies, playing together (without too much bickering), and the girls and I made........

PUPPY CHOW! YUMMMMY!

 It goes by a few other names too...Monkey Munch, Snowballs..ect. If you have never experienced it's goodness, you need to get to it!! It's so basic, waffle corn type cereal,peanut butter,chocolate chips, vanilla, butter, and powered sugar...Your getting hungry just thinking about it aren't you???? ;)

Cameron my one of my little helpers...she looks a little tuckered out doesn't she?And you can see she already got into the chocolate chips! Sneaky Cam!;0

Peyton LOVES to bake and help out in anyway, whether you want her to or not. ;)
