Peep Jar Instructions

Ingredients in the Jar:
--Reduce 1 sleeve graham crackers (approx 1 1/3 c.)to crumbs and layer 2/3 of the crumbs in a 1 qt. jar.
--Place 8 marshmallow bunny peeps "or whatever peeps are good for the season"standing up, facing out around the inside of the jar pressing them against the glass, but don’t squash them.
--Carefully, spoon remaining crumbs in the center of the jar to support the bunnies, pressing down to keep it snug.
--On top of this pour 1 ½ c. Easter M&M’s "or the current holiday"
--Decorate the lid of the jar however you please…tie curly ribbons around the neck of the jar.

Directions: (this is what you give with the jar) Empty the jar contents into a bowl and add 1/3 C brown sugar. Snip the bunnies into bits with kitchen sheers or cut up with a knife. Return the bunny bits to the mixture and mix well. Melt ½ c. butter, add 1 t. vanilla. Pour this over the dry ingredients, mixing well. Pat into a greased 8x8 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.
*Option: leave the bunnies whole; combine remaining ingredients and place the bunnies on top; then bake as directed

More pages..i'm on a roll!!

It has been so much fun to get these pictures on paper. I don't do super fancy ones, but I think they are cute and my kids already love looking at them. I don't have time to go ALL out on my pages, but they are in a book and off my endless CDs of pictures. I have no hope in catching up, but at least I can try to stay on top of it :).

The first set of pages is from Anthony's first hair cut. I can't believe how much hair he had. I'm glad I kept it all of these years. I can't figure out what the best way to take pictures of my pages is, so bear with me until I find the right way to take them.

This one is probably my favorite of the bunch. I got the inspiration from ... Sketches! by Tamara. She has lots of great things on her blog!

Recent pages

Here are my latest scrapbook pages. I LOVE Close to my Heart! They make it so easy to sit down and put a bunch of pages together. I don't think they are anything too fancy, but enough to get the job done and say they look cute! I hope my kids will love them someday!
