I asked Sam what kind of treat he wanted to share with his classmates this year. He quickly replied that he wanted Rice Crispy Treats. I saw the recipe for these in a magazine a few years ago and I decided to give them a try. I think they looked a little cuter with smaller sticks as the handles -- but we have tons of tongue depressors here ;-) lol

The recipe is just traditional rice crispy recipe and then I took a vanilla tub frosting and added it to a decorators bag and piped a line along the sides of each. Then I rolled them in the sprinkles. So cute! :-)

After they dried a bit I wrapped each in plastic wrap. They are all ready to go now! Thanks for looking! xxoo

the foyer of Amel's I really love this wallpaper.

The Kabob section of Amel's menu.

My tall baby boy in South Park at a party. The wall in the background is very old -- I have a picture of my dad sitting at this wall when he was 2. PS I dislike this shirt Sam has on -- but it is a Phineas and Ferb shirt -- his current fave cartoon.

fighting with "the man" -- over a grocery list. PS I also don't like his shirt -- it is a Beatles Shirt
this kills me -- the keys light up on the Mac Book Pro!
tres cool (this is on the Pub table BTW).

Sam's new lamp (he picked it for his bedroom -- Pier One Imports) for his Dojo (which I think is Chinese or Japanese for house?) LOL

This is the necklace Sam got me for my birthday! See the X's and O's so cute!

Sam's new Mac book Pro.

Our BBQ place -- nom nom.

My new serger sewing machine. I always wanted a serger.

Klimt print at Amels. I love this wallpaper btw!
