My sweet puppy boy snuck in my bed and woke me up early.  Here we are trying to be quiet so AllieCat can sleep in.

My son snuck in my room and used me as a pillow while he played quietly on his video game.  He was trying not to wake me up.  Shhh!

Candy Cane yummy tummy fun.

Do you still have Candy Cane’s lying around the house?  Try this super easy, kid friendly food craft with the kids.




Use a toaster oven and set to 250, soften chocolate and spread using back of spoon, add sprinkles, and let cool for 30 minutes to an hour before wrapping individually.  My first batch didn’t come out very well because I had the oven set to 450 and the candy cane started to melt.  My last two batches I set oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit and it worked great.  The chocolate softened within minutes.
