From bees to turtles...

I have a husband, 2 kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats and approx. 50,000 bees. I can't feed anything else. I just don't have the time.

But my cute husband called from work to let me know that they found a "sand dollar sized baby turtle" and they had it in a box.

What is it about hearing the words "sand dollar sized baby turtle" that makes the "kid inside" you jump out with total excitement?!!?!?!? So of course I put my children who are dressed like cinderella and snow white with no shoes on in the car to go and see the turtle...

he's very cute, just like my husband.

So now I have a husband, 2 kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats and approx 50,000 bees...and a baby turtle.

But don't worry... we will release him this weekend into the creek at the park for all of you "do not keep wild animals as pets people" :)

Here is a child friendly, fun , honey filled, recipe...

for the kid inside you!

Honey Rice Crispy Snacks

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1-1/2 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup multicolored candy sprinkles (or M & M's, whatever)
  • Optional: 1/2 cup Raisins or Peanuts
Put a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet and on the table for rolling the balls. Combine powdered sugar, honey and peanut butter in a medium bowl. Stir until mixed well. Stir in cereal and raisins. Using hands, shape mixture into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in sprinkles and place on a cookie sheet. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Cookies should feel firm when touched. Serve right away or place in tightly covered container and store in refrigerator.

Happy Weekend!

  1. I love this blog, is really amazing. The turtles are my favorite animal because they are quiet and they never represent a danger for anybody. This is the main reason why i love it. And how big they can be. Simply wonderful.
