Oreo Bunnies

 When Alaina and Ruby were here, we made cute bunny treats using oreos, marshmallows, white chocolate and sprinkles.  They were really pretty easy to make, but they got easier after we did a few and learned some tricks.

First we carefully opened the oreos, dipped a sucker stick in melted white chocolate, put it in the frosting and put them back together.  While the white chocolate cooled, we worked on bunny ears.

To make the ears, we cut large marshmallows in half diagonally, then pressed them into pink sprinkles. The sprinkles stick to the cut part and they look like bunny ears!

Then we drizzled melted white chocolate over the oreo's and spread it onto front and back.  We pressed the bottom of the ears into the oreos and set them to dry on parchment paper.  Once they dried, I did add a little more white chocolate to the back to make sure the ears stayed on.

We put candy eyes on, a little pink candy for a nose and a sprinkle for the mouth.

Then they went into bags and were tied with a pink ribbon.  We brought one to both Dad and Ann, saved one for Cassie, saved one for Bob, dropped some off at the girls friends house and sent some home with them.

They were pretty happy with their creations!

Little moments, fun memories

Here's a few fun moments from my last week.

I had Tuesday off and Heather asked if I would go with her to run a few errands. She watches a 7 month old baby, so getting out with the baby and Cassie can be an ordeal.  We ran the errands in good time, then picked up some Chik-fil-A for lunch and took it to her house to eat.

Here's Cassie, enjoying her lunch.

And here she is showing me a chick cookie I had picked up for her at Target.

On Friday night, Alaina and Ruby spent the night.  We had supper at Red Robin.  The girls were showing the green they wore for St Patrick's Day.

When we got home, Alaina helped me make a treat.  She did a great job.  I'll share the recipe for this later this week.

While Alaina was working in the kitchen, Ruby was making a fort out of the couch cushions.

On Saturday, we stopped at my Dad and Ann's on the way home to drop off some fun things the girls made.  They are always happy to see Alaina and Ruby,  and the girls love to see Great Grandpa and Great Grandma too.

Also on Saturday was this. Yet another snowstorm on the weekend.  On Friday the temp was 31 when we went to bed, 18 degrees with lots of wind and more snow. I heard on the news, that this snowstorm put us at the 3rd highest snowfall on record for the season.  

This week we are supposed to have temps in the 50's so we are all hoping that this is the last snow for the season.  I don't need to break any more records!  :)
