My new favorite treats

OH MY GOODNESS how I love these things!! Talk about scrumptious!!!! I found the idea for them on You will love this site if you enjoy tasty and absolutely adorable little treats. My batch made up about 43 cupcake pops. The girls enjoyed them. Our 9th grade LifeGroup loved them. Their a hit! I can't wait to make some for Halloween. I am using brown and orange for the colors. I also want to make them for a bake sale sometime. Enjoy...and don't eat too many!

And to think...

She looks like such an innocent little cherub...but we all know by the last post, that maybe that isn't the whole picture! I love my girl...mischief and all.

Need I say more?

Umm, so we had a little discipline problem at school, but I think it was handled well. She swiped M.E. Guy's Dora doll on the way in from the playground! Little hound then went and hid it in her backpack...under her jacket. It's hard to imagine being dishonest starts at such a young age. Hopefully she learned her lesson. Life rolls on...
