Little Switches that make a Diffrence

    When I think about Change, it makes me think of my childhood.  Just in my 34 years of life of have seen alot of changes from People, to places around me.  Although I lived in the same house the first 18 years of my life I still seen changes going on all around me.  As a Family we didn't do an extreme amount of travel but we did go outside of the state on occassions, so I go t to see how diffrent people live and how diffrent the world around us really is.

     One of the things that comes to mind when I think of change is I saw a picture of me in high school and then I look at me now!  The changes like the length of my hair and maybe the color is diffrent, I look like a diffrent person.  I beleive that haveing a diffrent Attitude, can make a diffrence in people.  Have you ever meet someone that was really quiet and shy and then the next time you see them they talk to you.  They generally seem to be a little happier and more out going than they did when they were shy and bottled up.  I myself in school diffrent hang out with alot of people but since graduating High school I have changed the way I approach people.  Some would say now you can't shut her up.  But people seem to be more at ease around me.

     There are some things in my life that I would like to change.  I have been married for 2 years and we have 4 children together.  My son is the oldest at 12 and i have a daughter that is 7, both from a previous relationship.  My husband also has a 7 year old daughter from a previous relationship, and together we have a 2 year old together.  We never really got a chance to date before getting married, but what small detail I have left out is that I married my high school sweetheart.  He was the first guy I ever really dated, and I miss being able to just go out to the maovies or just go to the park and talk.  I love my children and enjoy spending every wakeing moment with them, but I would enjoy maybe one night a month that was designed just for me and my husband.  Maybe just a few hours would nice.  I would love to go to an ADULT restaraunt and not also have to eat burgers because we have the kids.

My Favorite PEEPS Moments

     As a child we did not get candy everyday like my children do now!  It was usually a special occasions like in your stocking at Christmas, the Easter bunny left it in your basket, or as an extra treat for birthdays.  I remember getting up on Easter morning early because me and my sisters just really wanted to see what did the Easter bunny bring this year?  It was just about as much fun as Santa Clause to tell you the truth.
     Our parents would always fix our baskets and always included PEEPS candy.  I don't remember there being anything but bunnies when I was little but I know that now they have chicks too!  But i would take the bunnies and bite the head off and we would play games with them. 

     As an Adult/Mother I still carry on the tradition of putting these cute little critters in my little ones basket for them, every year!  I enjoy baking cakes but I have the decorating abilities of a Monkey! I know it is sad but true.  I come up with really cute ideas but can;t seem to get them to come out to look good on my cakes, so I look for other creative ways to decorate my cakes.  I have found that you can take the Peeps candies and use them and people just think you are awesome! 
     I had what I thought was wonderful idea last year.  I said to myself, Jennie why can't you put the Peeps in those little plastic Easter eggs for the Easter Egg Hunt?  Do you know why you can't do that?  Well, let me tell you what happened.  In the South around Easter we have very Sunny and Warm days around Easter.  Yeas, the bunnies swelled up inside the eggs and it was a mess.  They were fun to watch my kids try to eat, but I didn't think I would ever get the marshmallow off of EVERYTHING!  I guess as an adult that has to be the best moment I had with Peeps.
     And now if you don't like the traditional sugar coated peeps they have all kinds of chocolate covered Peeps.  I haven't tried these yet but plan on adding them in the baskets just so I can!
