Mommy and Me Monday-The 6th Edition


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

I have a confession to make; I like Easter candy. 

Really, I like all candy.  But, Easter is the best.  I love black jelly beans.  No kidding.  (If you don’t like yours, send them to me, promise, I’ll eat them all up).  I also like Peeps. 

What’s better than a fluffy, yummy marshmallow covered in colored sugar?

Letting your girls eat them for the first time with you, that’s what’s better.

Sugar coated, marshmallow-y bliss.

  1. Last week Dearest had some peeps, too. He was traumatized when he walked away only to return and find out that I had decapitated Obviously, I love peeps, too!

  2. I can't get past the squishy yellow peep. I just can't bring myself to eat them. I do love to bite the ears off the chocolate bunny. When is someone going to get wise and just make chocolate ears?

    I love your girls faces in these photos. You all look like you are enjoying those treats.

  3. I'm so glad you got them and didn't wait until Easter! They look so yummy…however, I need to find a way for them to fit into my goal plan.

  4. You black jelly bean lovers are hard to find! I would mail you all of mine because I HATE wasting candy! Maggie will be trying peeps very very soon because they are the BEST!

  5. Well I do not like black jelly beans so if I don't toss them in the trash I will surely send them your way!

  16. Sparkette says:

    Oh I can't stand peeps. My mom opens them and leaves them open for like two months then she eats them! Yuck.

    My favorite Easter candy is the new Nerds Jelly Beans. Oh my goodness I could eat those forever. Oh and white chocolate bunnies. No chocolate for me!

  27. so cute! 🙂

    I will fight you for the black jelly beans, I love them too!!

  28. PEEPS?!?! Really? Ugh. I am an easter candy NUT…but Peeps, no thanks! 🙂 Although, I have to admit, if Libbi asked me to try one with her for the first time, I would do it in a second! 🙂
    Happy Monday!

  29. I love Easter candy too – but I cannot stand jelly beans or peeps (shocking right?). My thing is the Cadbury eggs. They are probably why the rest of the weight won't come off.

    Cute pictures though! I wonder if Karys would like peeps that much 🙂

  30. Did you know Peeps come from Pennsylvania?? 🙂 Fun times – I think I'll get my kids peeps tonight!
