Angry Birds Party!

    This past weekend was my son's 8th birthday and we decided  on an Angry Birds Party!  He had such a blast from building the slingshot to tearing into the cupcakes!  

   Thanks to the wonderful people on my computer I was able to print off lots of items for this party and be the most awesome mom ever in my son's eyes!

    It was a beautiful sunny day and we were able to have a great time at the park!

  First up I wanna show you the sling shot that my hubby and kids made. wouldn't be an angry birds party without a sling shot, right?
Here's my boys building it.
Here is what it looks like finished, great right?
we set up boxes and cans we painted to  look like piggies and just let the kids have fun. Okay, mom had to try it too. lol
My son had so much fun with the sling shot and just knocking the boxes down!

  For the cake I decided to do cupcakes. Now keep in mind I of course wanted to do something really special. I stayed up to midnight tryin and  trying to make these one kind of cupcakes,but finally gave in and made these really cute ones instead. They were a big hit! They were so yummy!

Everyone had a great time and thanks to this great website,  I was able to pull off the greatest angry birds party for my son!
Thanks guys!

    All in all it was a fun day and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves!

   Happy Birthday to my 8 year old!

Rainny Days

   Rainy Days, are just wonderful days to be lazy!  I've recently had a rainy day this week end and decided to spend it baking.   Rainy days and cooler weather is just right for new recipes!  Nothing like the aroma of baked goods in my kitchen!

   I decided to bake some brownies, rice crispy treats with a twist and some dip.  Today I thought I'd share the recipes with you for your next rainy day.

These were so yummy!  Loved them!
After making two batches of these, yup they were that good. I made some brownies! Now for some brownies and I usually don't get along. For some reason brownies are just one thing I just can't bake.  Once I saw these though I just knew I had to try making brownies again.
These were good. Just a word of advice. Don't over cook these or  the marshmallows  will go all over.Also don't over fill the batter.  I think next time I will use the mini marshmallows instead of the big ones.
Now at my house we are big on nachos, chips and dips! If chips are involved we are all over it!
So my next rainy day recipe is for an awesome dip!
This was  delicious!  My hubby says next time to add some chicken to it.
Well.....I've hoped you enjoyed my rainy day recipes! Remember
