Muddy Buddies

Muddy Buddies, Puppy Chow, Reindeer Poop, whatever you call it, I call it YUM!  I love this treat.  It's one of my kids favorites too.

9 cup Rice Chex cereal
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/c cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 & 1/2 cups powdered sugar

*Melt the chocolate chips, peanut butter and the butter together either in the microwave or on the stove top in  a pot.  Remove from heat and add the vanilla.  Stir all together.  Put the cereal in a large bowl and pour the chocolate/peanut butter mixture all over the cereal and mix it all together.  Then take half the coated cereal out and put it in a gallon size zip lock baggie with the powdered sugar and toss the cereal to coat each piece in the powdered sugar.  Then take the other half of the cereal and put it in a powdered sugar filled zip lock and repeat the same process.*

Jens' Last League Game

Jens played in his last league play game tonight.  It was kind of sad to watch.  They have a tournament in Lake Tahoe at the end of this month and then they are DONE!  The Diamond Dawgs will be no more.  I'm not going to the tournament so this was my last time to watch the boys play.  They all try out for high school ball this season.  So lets just say that maybe Jens doesn't make the high school team and what if this was my last time to see him at bat?

People have always told me to watch out because they say my kids will grow up overnight.  I never realized how true that statement was.

I have completely loved every single game that I have been able to watch.  I have loved watching ALL of these boys grow up.  They are going to be fine men one day.
 I have truely come to love them like my own.  

(And as a side note - they won 7 to 1!)
