Aren't they just the cutest 'lil things!!!

Look at these cute 'lil cake bites!! I just think they are the cutest things!! I got the recipe from another blog Bakarella. Only hers are way prettier! I think for the first time they turned out cute!! I think I was a bit impatient and the chocolate was not quite set or I just have really hot hands, but when I went to dip the top of the cute 'lil cake the chocolate would begin to melt and then I had to move real quickly so I didn't drop them. These treats are for my son's school, they are having a meal for the teachers tomorrow and I love to try new things. As an added bonus I'm also sending the butterbrickle cream cheese ball from Tastefully simple!! The cake bites are really sweet and yummy!!

Like Father...Like daughter

Every night before bedtime we gather the kids for prayer. It's a nice time for us to unwind from the day and take time to review. Each night we ask What made you happy today? Sad? and Thankful! We never know what responses we will get. Now lately Dave has been calling on the kids to start the prayer and then he or I will close the prayer. Josh doesn't seem to mind, but Hannah not so much! Last night after our happy/sad/thankful she randomly said "OK guys I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 100" So of course we all made our guesses. She proudly announced that daddy had won and his prize was that He was going to pray tonight!! LOL Didn't see that coming! So why did I title this "like father like daughter"?? Dave can be pretty tricky sometimes, and every so often he hits me with, "I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 5" when I guess he automatically says "yep, now your getting up with the kids tomorrow" Nice!!! I think the best part is that Hannah has never heard Dave do that, she's in bed!! So for her to play the same card is pretty interesting!!
