We love snacks in our home! If you were to visit, you’d hear our kids asking for snacks almost all day long some days. 🙂 (For some reason, it’s much more fun to eat snacks than it is to eat meals 😉 ). Well, we recently received some great re-useable snack and sandwich bags from […]

Cookie Delight ~ GIVEAWAY (3 Winners!)

If your household is anything like mine, cookies are a YUMMMMMMY treat – for kids and adults alike! I make 99% of our cookies with my own hands…why?
