1 pkg brownie mix (I use the low fat)
1 8 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
chopped peanuts (I used walnuts the past 2 times and they tasted great as well)
1} Bake brownie on round pizza pan as directed on box (I baked mine for about 24-25 mins), let cool
2} Combine cream cheese, brown sugar, peanut butter and vanilla (I soften mine in the microwave for about 30 seconds)
3} Spread mixture over brownie
4} Top with bananas, peanuts and chocolate syrup
We leave for Disney on Saturday and the kids could not be more excited. Macie and I spent most of nap time yesterday looking at all the rides Addaline could go on. Fortunately there are only 2 or 3 she can't go on, which is a lot smaller number than I thought it would be. I'm SO looking forward to being in Florida and enjoying the sun and time together with family. I can't wait for a day at the beach, vacation food, swimming, and not having a care in the world. Awe the sweet summer time! I'm also thankful for my mom staying at our house to dog sit!
Macie being home for the summer is already becoming quite the interesting situation. She is bored with all of the daycare kids, and the fact that we won't really be going a lot of places this summer is getting to her. I will try to take the kids to do something hopefully once a week, but to an 8 year old, that isn't enough. I'm hoping that with vacation, then church camp for 4 days, and vacation bible school for a week, those things help break up the summer and she isn't so bored. I'm also hoping that my mom and Gerrad's dad (they're retired) can maybe take turns taking her to do something once a week or so throughout the summer as well. I hate to see her bored, and also don't want it to get to the point where her and I are at each others throats all the time either. What do y'all with older kids, do with them during the summer? Camp is out of the question because I'm home, and can't really justify spending $100+ a week on camp, but am open to any other suggestions!
Does anyone want to guest blog for me while I'm gone? I'm not sure, but am thinking of having 2 or 3 guest posters for while we're gone. I have some fabulous readers and would love to share a few of them with you!!
