The cutest little pies!

Now most of the time I can say for sure without a doubt that when I bake something it probably won't be pretty but it will taste good :). Well for Christmas my mother in law got me the cutest little thing :) Called a "pocket pie mold" from William Sonoma 
Pretend the picture is white and a star... That is what I got but I can't find a picture of it and well it is just to much work to take a pic of mine!
This is the most awesome thing ever! It makes little cute hand held pies, and yesterday I even used it to make PB&J for the kids for snack at school and press it together like an uncrustable!
But really who wouldn't want little star shaped apple pies for snack!

I can't even tell you how happy my kids were after school!

Now I need to figure out how not to burn the edges LOL.

A happy young artist!

Caitlynn is my little artist :). At 3 years old we never have enough crayons, chalk, pens or sharpened pencils. She colors all the time, Luckily she has stopped trying to color the walls LOL. For Christmas she recieved bunches of coloring books and crayons and is just in heaven picking a picture to color :).

Then for Christmas she recieved the best present for a 3 year old (or 5 or 8 or 10 because they have all used it LOL)

She is going to have enough coloring to last her at least a few months LOL
And they can (all 4 kids) fit in it  with toys and books!
