Hi there all and happy Freecycle Friday!!
Today I wanted to show some cute ways to wrap up your Easter treats!!
First of all......I've had these cute test tubes forever! (I bought a TON years ago, and STILL have some :)
They make the cutest package for some pretty MMs or other small candies. I LOVE getting seasonal colored candy to put inside.
The best part? The test tube is so cute, you don't really need to add ribbon or embellishments......just give as is!!
This next one was soooooooo cute, I could'nt NOT do it!! I saw this here on All the Small Things and HAD to do it too :)
You just need a few things that you probably ALREADY have for Easter. I did really want to try the edible Easter grass, so I got some of that too :)
My older girls were just tickled when they saw this!!
I wanted to tell the tale of how our April Fool's Day went......
In the morning, i jelled the kids' orange juice. They thought it was funny, but didn't want to eat it like I thought they would.
For snack, I swapped out carrots in their bags of Cheetos like they did here. I think it kinda confused the girls and they didn't realize at first that they were carrots (Maddie was at school for hers and had to taste one first :).
Aislyn got mad at me and started crying (I NEVER buy chips, so this was a rare treat and I ruined it for her) and I caught her reaction on video (just diregard my messy kitchen and table and her crazy hair :)
I'll add video later.....I can't get it to work right now
For lunch, I made the faux grilled cheese sandwich from here. the girls were suspicious (even though I thought it looked pretty real), and then they were SO happy.
I made the meatloaf cupcakes for dinner and the girls were ECSTATIC that they were getting to have cupcakes for DINNER.
Then, they figured out that it was meatloaf and mashed potatoes.......and they were NOT HAPPY WITH ME :(
They whined all through dinner and finally I promised that if they ate it, they could have some
They both kept saying, "Mom, you shouldn't trick people like that".
Oh well, I thought they would think it was funny.....so next year I will need to do something different.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY LITTLE AISLYN!!!
She is 4 today and was SUPPOSED to be an April Fool's baby, but she tricked us and waited to come out.
So, happy birthday to my big girl.
It makes me a little sad that she is getting so big, but she is SO much fun and has the greatest personality.
She also says the funniest things and when she gets angry....she'll tell you off (in a
Well, this has been a lllooonnnnnggggg post, and thanks for bearing with me as I rambled on.
