Okay I have to add one more, I made these today for the boys after school, and they are AWESOME!
I used these new Rice Krispie and followed this traditional recipe. These turned out so good, you have to try them!

It is snowing and we are having a snow day tommorow!!!!
The boys are SOO excited, and so am I!
We made this blog friend's recipe and it was very yummy...can you guess what it is :)
