• OREO HALLOWEEN JARS: FUN FALL IDEAS

    I got to team up with my daughter Jenna over at @jonathanandjenna for a fun Halloween idea with OREOS! Here is an easy and fun idea you can do at home with your kids and if your kids like cookies, then they are going to LOVE this one! It’s just stacking in a jar, one on top of the next. Sound easy? Let’s get started! I used Oreo Cookies but you can use whatever you like! Candy or anything you have on hand. Just be creative. I also had this jar in my home. This same jar can be found at Walmart for $8.97. Any jar with a wide base…

    My youngest daughter turned 21 this past month, and you know what that means . . . CAKE! I have the recipe down below if you want to try it out! SO EASY! I found this Funfetti Cake recipe on Pinterest, but I was worried! I’ve only made a multi-level cake once before. I’m more of the 9×13 cake person.

That’s including cooling, but I also only had ONE baking pan to work with. This…

    When my kids were little we would hide plastic eggs in our backyard and let them go hunt for the prize inside, which was normally candy of some sort. One year we put chocolate inside and soon realized that the sun had melted the chocolate. Lesson learned. Another fun thing we would do was dye eggs and then we had fun decorating them. We would dip an egg halfway in one color for a few minutes, then turn the egg over and dip the other half in another color. The kids thought that was cool! We would use crayons, glitter, stickers, and just have so much fun with all of…
