Family Home Evening Monday

For Family Home Evening we made a Disney World savings bank. We did this to announce to Alexis that we are planning on going to Disney World this year and to start making our family aware of saving. This will probably be a mistake when we are tired of hearing about it later. Oh well. That is Alexis sorting her crayons. She didn't want to color or decorate. This kept her at the table and a part of the activity.

Mikey and Daddy going over the quarters to save particular ones. (I love my boys)

Ellie checking out our work before we put it on the oatmeal container.

The girls putting in the money. Ellie worked on this a long time. She really enjoyed putting the money in the slot. This is a great pincer grasp activity.

I made my own potpourri. It didn't turn out like I wanted. The scent is not strong at all but it looks pretty and reminds me of summer.

I was craving something sweet and salty. I went to the pantry and grabbed the stuff necessary to make rice crispy treats plus some extra stuff to throw in. I added crushed pretzel sticks, cashews, and chocolate chips. It hit the spot. I am happy just thinking about it.

Your treats looks yummy! I can ruin rice crispy treats like no other...and I consider myself a pretty darn good cook. You'll have to tell me your secret.
How fun to save for DisneyWorld. We want to try that maybe in 2 years when Olivia is a little older and can do more, (and she isn't so afraid of rides).
