Friday Night Leftovers

Happy Friday!

  • Aaron is away in Vegas with his college buddies this weekend. Let's hope for no facial tattoos.

  • I'm going to bring the kids up to the cabin and spend the weekend with my mother. They are super excited about it.

  • I just made these 'real' cereal bars for the kids - one fell apart while I was taking them out of the pan, so I tried it. They are freaking delicious. I used jam that a friend made and super yummy. And easy. Here's hoping the kids like them.

  • I'm planning on taking the kids to this Children's Museum this weekend too. I love trying new places.

  • Aaron's mom gave the kids pez for Valentine's day. They freaking LOVE them. And, as far as candy goes - I love them. No sticks (lollipops) and no chocolate drool/fingers. So I got more pez for bribes.

  • One of my girlfriends has a longer drive to daycare then I do, and has put a bin of books between the kids car seats. I saw this a few months ago, and thought- hey! Good idea. But didn't do anything about it. Just a couple days ago, I got an order from Amazon in a perfect sized box for in between the kids car seats. And what a HUGE hit. They love having a bunch of books to pick from. Of course, they are only in the car for about 10 minutes at a time, but I'm excited for the drive to the cabin - I think it will stop the constant commentary from them on the highway.

I always forget to link back to Danifred on Fridays! Go see her sweet new baby!

... and even better, the homemade cereal bars have no eggs. Thanks for passing on, C - totally making these for Lucky. :)

I got a fabric car organizer for books on Etsy and it is great. Elizabeth can kind of reach it from her seat.

We are big fans of pez here too.

I'm going to need to make those cereal bars.

I was going to make one myself (damn you for teaching me about Pinterest) but neither kid would be able to reach the books from the car seats (we do forward facing marathons and they are really far away from the back of the seats). The pretty fabric one will have to wait until booster seats, and that is a long long time away.

I ate three. So at least I know they won't go to waste if the kids don't like them.

I was totally going to reference "The Hangover" with your first bullet.

All of mine got Pez for Vday from my mom, and love them as well. Strange.
