Cupcake Bombs For Family Night!! #FoodieFriday

Yes, you read the title correctly-it does say cupcake bombs! You see, M recently came up with the idea of doing themed family nights every couple of weeks. Friday is usually our family night and consists of food, games, maybe a movie, maybe some challenges on Wii Sport...anything we can come up with. After their success with themed birthday parties last year, M and M decided that themed family nights would be a good idea. They have a whole list of possibilities, and are having a lot of fun with it. Tonight is our first one, and it's sort of an adventure, mystery-solving theme. Most people have heard of Nancy Drew I'm sure, which is the girls portion of the night. The guys weren't thrilled about attending a Nancy Drew family night though, so we added on a manly aspect-the Hardy Boys!

Of course with this theme, we have new names for the meal and beverages (such as Rush of Adrenaline for Capri Sun, and Truth Serum for the water). Games include a taste test, scent identification balloons, and a Bible mystery game. Oh, and I have to share this one-dynamite sticks! Don't worry, they're just Slim Jims wrapped in construction paper, and thread used for the fuse. I love these!

Along with the rest of the fun described above, we had to have a desert. M mentioned doing Cupcake Bombs (don't ask me where she comes up with all these great ideas!), so of course I was installed as the Cupcake Bomb maker. 

It's actually very simple-you can use a box cake mix, or your favorite recipe-and would be great for any boy's birthday party. Or of course, have your own themed family night! Here's how to make these little bombs:

24 Cupcakes (As I said, use your favorite recipe, or a box mix. Any flavor.)
Frosting (Again, make your own, or use a store-bought can.)
1 or 2 Twizzlers

Bake your cupcakes according to directions, cool, and frost. Cut Twizzlers in half lengthwise, then cut into desired lengths. Insert a piece of Twizzler in the center of each frosted cupcake, and BOOM! You have a bomb the entire family will love!

Even though my children are older I think they'd still get a kick out of doing this!

I love this idea, it's really simple and they are just as cute as they can be.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
