Who is up for a challenge?

All right I have been addicted to reading a new blog that I found on blogspot. Bakerella is the master mind of Angie Dudley who bakes the most delicious and oh so sinful foods anyone can imagine!
She has numerous posts about her cupcake pops and I have been wanting to make them ever since I found her blog a few weeks ago.
Anyways I was thinking this morning wouldn't it be fun to have a challenge and have other moms make these with me! Heck why not gather up the kids and let them join in the fun?
Don't they look fun to make?

The challenge? You have 2 weeks to make them,(after all we are mom's and have to fit it in to our busy schedules right?,) and email a pic of your yummy creation! I'll post the pics for everyone to see! Get your creative juices going and make those yummy cupcake pops! You'll find the instructions here or better yet if you are a visual person and like to see things being done, rather than reading about them watch this video of Angie when she was on the Martha Stewart show making her Cupcake Pops! Please post in the comment that you have committed to making these! Who knows I might just throw in a random prize! ;o)

If you ever need a laugh.....

Ok I know it's been a while since I've posted here but it's been busy here. Between potty training, camping, planning Michelea's birthday party, the birthday party, spending time with the girls, keeping the house clean and a ton of other things it gets to be busy but I just had to share this video that my sister Heather sent me in an email. Talk about Laugh out loud funny!

Potty Training 101 - day 1

Yes it's that time again....well sorta, ok not really. We never succesfully potty trained Michelea ourselves since I was pregnant with Dakota and she never, ever, had any successes in potty training and then I was put on complete bed rest and we had to discontinue the potty training until after Dakota was born and things calmed down. By then she didn't want anything to do with potty training and then all of a sudden one day she just decided that she wanted to use the potty and she never turned back! :)
Now Dakota, is a whole different story! Dakota WANTS to use the potty and even knows that she needs to use the potty because she just peed in her pull-up. OOPS!
She sure is cute though when she is on the potty! EVERYTIME, she sits down to go potty she has to push, as though she is constipated, (whether she needs to go poo or not,) until she is red in the face and all the while she is laughing! LOL! She's squinting her eyes, squishing her nose, puckering her lips and making the loudest, funniest grunting noise she can make! It's hilarious!
She hasn't had any successes yet but I am hoping that she'll be giving high fives real soon!

The value of a dollar....

just isn't what it used to be. We have been trying sooooooo hard to sell our GMC Sierra truck because we don't need it anymore because we have Jeremy's work truck that we use for hauling the camper, that and the fact that it is a gas hog, we just don't need it.
Michelea has even been commenting way before we had even put the for sale sign up in the window that we need a "little car" but I keep telling her that we need to sell the truck before we buy a little car. Lately she has been so anxious to get that little car that she has even volunteered her tooth fairy money so that she can help us buy the little car. She's just so determined to get that "little car" for us!
Fast forward to this past Sunday. Michelea has had both of her two front teeth that are so loose but still stuck in her gums that they have been hurting her for two months. OUCH! Finally she let Jeremy pull them out with dental floss and it didn't hurt at all! YEAH!

She put her teeth under her pillow and the tooth fairy came! She was sooooo excited when she woke up the next morning and found 8 quarters under her pillow. :o) We counted up how much was there and when she figured up that she had $2.00 she promply exclaimed, "Hey, I have enough money now to buy that little car for us!" Jeremy quickly jumped in and said that we could go look for a clown car that she could buy with her money she had saved up.

She's not too happy about it and really doen't want a clown car so she has changed her mind and has decided to wait until we sell the truck. Smart girl.
