So, a few of my really good friends posted on their blogs about this really clever idea!  So, when I found myself with two loaves of kid bread, and a big jar of cheap peanut butter I said, “self, you are going to do this.”  Slapped 9 of these babies together in about 10 minutes, wrapped up up tight, put them back in the bread bag and threw them in the freezer.  It’s a little sad what a thrill it gave me, and continues to give me.  I can’t wait to throw one in D’s lunch Monday morning and experience the full-on rush of actually having saved myself some time.

Thanks, friends!

Oh, Finn.  Sweet, big-eyed, candy and doughnut loving Finn.  I cannot resist you.  Even though I know you will only lick off the frosting and leave most of the doughnut in tact, when you ask me for the football shaped doughnut I will buy it for you.  Every time.

Took the kids to Krispy Kreme last Saturday on the way to Aunt Becky’s and Granny’s.  Every once in a while I realize that I’m doing something that used to frighten me…like taking all three of them somewhere with no restraining device or backup help.  We simply get out of the car and walk through the parking lot like normal people, go in, sit down and do whatever.  Truly, this is a huge step for me. 

We (they) ate doughnuts then went to visit Aunt Becky and Granny for a bit while Daddy took a concealed handgun class (watch out all you Richardson bad guys).  It was a good day.
