Got this recipe from a friend. Thanks, Janelle 🙂 I think every time I make them, someone says how good they are. Plus, they are so easy, even my 11 yr. old makes them.
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup rice krispies
1/4 cup honey ( I use light corn syrup )
1/2 cup choc. chips
Mix together and form into balls.
You can roll them in powdered sugar if you’d like. Personally, I think they taste better that way 🙂 But I do have a sweet tooth. And take my word for it, you will want to double the recipe right away. They never last long here 🙂
My oldest son… 9 yrs. old. Every time my children turn a yr. older, I get all sentimental and say things like, “I can’t believe he or she is that age already!!” and “Where did the time go?”
That’s what I’m thinking now as I type this 🙂 How is it that he is 9?? Some days he surprises me with how grown up he can be, and the next time he acts like he’s reverted back to a 3 yr. old. He loves anything with a motor! Sometimes I wonder what else he could possibly start up in a day 🙂 I know that comes from his daddy 🙂
I always love to see my children at each stage as they grow, but I do feel a twinge of sadness at how fast the years really do go by.
Tomorrow school is starting for the year, and he will be entering 3d grade. He really enjoys school, and does well, so I’m hoping for another good year.
all proud of his bday gift 🙂
I took him and some friends swimming for his bday.. My sweet boy! He has brown hair and eyes just like his daddy. Handsome like his dad too 😉 I may have been acting a bit ridiculous so I could get some smiles 🙂 Instead I get this 🙂Love him!! Even though he can frustrate me like crazy 🙂 He so badly wanted a picture with Misty, so I obliged. I decided not to order wallets of this one though, because she looks so poorly. Sure, I could do some photoshopping, but that’s not real life. I’m hoping by Kirsten’s birthday to be able to take her pictures with her. Think she’ll be looking good by then 🙂
Have an awesome week! ~ Jolene
It was a morning that Dale came back from hauling a horse for someone, that there were some very excited children at our house. An Amish acquaintance of ours blessed us with a free pony. Or small horse? There is still some debate on that 🙂 I think it looks to much like a horse to be a pony. Does that even make sense? 🙂 I have no experience with horses 🙂
Anyways, we added to our Old McDonald farm 🙂 I guess someone dropped this pony off at this Amish man’s farm because it was neglected and needed care. And then it came here. I pitied the poor thing! Very thin and losing hair. She is getting plenty of attention here! Maybe more than she would like 🙂 They all were so happy! Kirsten has been begging for a horse for so long 🙂A good shampoo was in order. I’m actually quite proud of my hubby for helping the children . This is definitely not something he would normally do 🙂 Unless it was a cow 🙂 Her name is Misty. She is starting to look much better, even though Tristan cut her mane rather short 🙂 Guess he thought she needed a trim as well 🙂 I told the children not to ride her till she is stronger, but it wasn’t long till I’d see them. We have no saddle, they just sit on her bareback 🙂 She is quite gentle, which is great for these people not used to horses 🙂
At any rate, I prefer her over the pigs 🙂Who as you can see are starting to look quite portly. In fact, I think they will soon be headed off to various butcher shops 🙂 Randy and Diana are giving one to us, and I think when I’m eating that yummy ham, and bacon, and sausage, I will remember all the pig chases, the running through flower beds, and I will be smiling 😉
I have this motto above my desk, where all the action happens 🙂 It’s a great reminder to me!
And awhile back, I posted pictures of my curtains that needed some pullbacks. These work very nice! Little by little, I’m working at finishing up the office. I found a metal cart at a yard sale for $.50. Think I’m going to spray paint it orange and use it in the office. It could go awhile till that happens 🙂
Enjoy your day! Mine will be spent doing more corn. I can’t get enough of corn on the cob 🙂
Today is our anniversary. Not sure how we’ve been married 13 yrs.already 🙂
We spent the day doing corn. I’m not complaining. I don’t have to get special treatment on special days 🙂 But after a too short night and a hard day of work, I felt I could use a little pick me up 🙂 Lucky for us, it was school cleaning night. Boys restroom. Fun! 😉
So Dale stayed with the children and I headed to school. And I decided to make a short stop for something sweet. Hello, my good friend 🙂Sometimes, you just have to make your day a bit special for yourself. Happy Anniversary to me 🙂
By the way,lest I sound too whiny, we were blessed with cards and texts wishing us a special day, and my mom provided us with lunch and a yummy DQ cake, so that was very nice!
I have to admit, anniversaries are something I don’t do well at remembering. But when you think about it, every day should be a day to be thankful for our spouses, to show them our love, not just on our anniversary 🙂
