treat tuesdays

i had the rare opportunity to have talby to myself.
i don't even remember where the other kids were?
but it was just the two of us.
we went to the grocery store and got the ingredients for OREO pops.
(and an entire cart full of groceries too)


pretty simple really.
lollipop sticks in oreos….dipped in almond bark…dipped in sprinkles.
we let them harden on waxed paper.

                we had a system going of me dipping them in the almond bark and she did the sprinkles.




they didn't last long.
not even an evening…..everyone loved them.

loving treat tuesdays. 

we also made Pizza pretzels last week.



the boys liked these more than the girls.

and we made Dana's pumpkin chocolate chip cookies too.
but no pictures.
because they were gone so fast….a double batch!


there is a BIG fundraiser on amy's blog to help bring davis home.

i am so excited for her family!!!


there are BIG prizes.

maybe THIS is the one where I will win the iPad?!!??


we all know that it's not about the prizes.

being generous is FUN.
it bring YOU joy.
it is a blessing for everyone involved.
the Lord loves a cheerful giver!
you can't NOT be happy when you GIVE….it's the best feeling!

the prizes are just the icing.


he has a mama and a daddy who wants him in her arms NOW.

and sisters and brothers who want to love on him.


Steve Verdon - It is so rewarding to see a site that brings to mind a healthy Mom and her best loves. Thank You

Heidi Quick - PS…I put pictures up on my new blog of our versions…I linked to your page and gave you all the credit. 🙂

Heidi Quick - So fun! I’m brand new to this blog world, and yours is my favorite! My 2 year old and I started Sweet Saturdays (or sundays) because of you! Keep the good ideas (and pictures) coming!

Laura - I think the oreo pops may be my new Christmas gift idea!!!! No one could pass those up. I never thought of pizza pretzels, it has been printed off. It will be on the menu very soon. Yummy!!!!!

sarah - OREO POPS?!!?!?
who knew.
you’re too kind to us, meg.

Holly - yum! I love having one on one time with each child!

jenni - “Being generous is fun”… Maybe that’s why your name showed up as a contributor in our Batten Disease newsletter. Big thanks!
We made pizza muffins recently, that sound similar to the pretzels and were a big hit with the two year old. I really, really wish we had some Oreo pops!

Andrea @ Big Creek Cottage - OK, these look too good…….dangerously good, in fact. I have a question for you totally off the Oreo subject…I would have emailed but my computer is being a bit…well…difficult this morning. We are looking to get a puppy and have been considering a labradoodle or goldendoodle…isn’t Waffle a goldendoodle? If so, I was wondering about shedding? Does he shed crazy, mild or what? Thanks!!!! and now I am off to the store to buy Oreo’s and sprinkles…….my kids thank you!!!!

You sort of had a picture of the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. It was on your video, with the Daddy Said song. I remember cause my daughter wanted to watch the video a zillion times, and because they looked yummy so I tried to find the recipe website showing on your laptop.

Kimberlee - Oreo pops. I wish I had one now. T
hey would go great with my coffee.
It’s not too early is it?
