The Fishy Sandwich

Went to the store the other day to get bread with Aiden I had saw this fish shaped bread online and decided that I wanted to try it with the kids. It may make my life a little bit easier since I have to constantly use cookie cutters and sandwich cutters to shape their sandwiches. And with this Fish shaped bread from Pepperidge farm the shaping of the animal was already done for me. So we tried it kids loved it madisyn loves the bread she calls it her fishy bread so I think we are stuck on this bread for awhile. I will be buying this bread probably all of the time.

the whole bottle of sprinkles

After Madisyn saw how much sprinkles that Aiden was putting his cookie she decided that she didn't need to be neat and clean it was time for her to make a mess also. Oh well at least they had fun decorating right.
I decided that I hadn't done any type of craft or fun activity with the kids in awhile so I decided that they could frosting some cookies today. It was a little bit more messier than I had thought originally but they had fun and got to make their own decorations for their cookies that they were going to eat. So here are pictures of the event.

and the adventure or journey begins

Last week I have officially been informed that I got into the Licensed Practical Nursing Program. I am ecstatic about this news. It seems like this journey has been an adventure and I am so ready to begin this journey of my life so that I can go back to work doing something that I love to do. Not that I don't love staying home with my two kids because I think that is the best job someone can ever have. But I am ready to make some money if you all know what I mean. I remember right after I had Aiden when I was in the Navy that I wish I was a stay at home mom I was envious of those moms who got the privilege of staying at home with their kids all day. I thought that was a dream job, but then I realized after doing it for now about 2 years or so its a hard job, but its the most rewarding job someone could ever have. I am ready for this part of my life to advance forward and to be able to provide our children with more than before. I have loved every minute (well most of every minute) staying home with my children and wouldn't change any of it if I could.

So I was thinking that its 4th of July weekend why not try and make some s'mores since usually thats when most people go camping. Us we aren't the outdoorsy types of people so our children have never had s'mores so why not make this messy creation. So here it is Madisyn was not to sure about this thing she didn't wan't to even eat since it was so messy, even with the much chocolate and marshmallows on it.
I Heated the oven up to 400 degrees, placed foil on the cookie pan and placed the grahm cracker square and the marshmallow and stuck it in the oven, when I took it out I placed the chocolate on the marshmalllow with the other part of the square Grahm cracker. and tada s'mores. And let me tell you they are a lot sweeter than I remember as a kid.
