M & M play hair cut!!! Yikes!

OK...when you have 4 year old twins who are playing nicely upstairs and you don't hear a peep...they must be up to something!

So of course that is what happened to us...M & M decided to play haircut...and with plastic scissors I might add!! Apparently they are pretty darn sharp!

Mr M decided to be the haircut guy and Miss M decided to be the customer!! Then they switched!!

I went upstairs and freaked!!!

Luckily Miss M had her hair up like Tinker Bell with her costume on so only the back of her hair got cut and her LONG hair is still there :) Mommy had to trim it up a bit.

And Mr M ended up with premature balding in the back LOL!!!

Deep Breath Mom...Deep Breath!!!

The Twins Make Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies

The twins love to cook and bake. At four years old, they can do almost everything in the kitchen except put in and take stuff out of the oven. And of course use hot oil...YIKES! We want to keep this fun and not go to the ER :)

Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies
(recipe from Betty Crocker but of course we changed it a bit)

First M & M made the brownie batter with a mix. Sometimes we do it from scratch too.

Then the twins put it in the 13 x 9 baking dish.

Put them in the oven and M & M started the YUMMY peanut butter layer...real butter, peanut butter, & powdered sugar...who could resist.

And Mix...

Took a little break for a bath while brownies cooled. Now time to spread on the peanut butter layer...



Now for chocolate layer...

And the finished product...borrowed this image from for time being but will update with our photo when I upload them :~)

These brownies were so YUMMY! I have put away several. Now time to head to the gym. See ya soon!

***UPDATE: Ok so we ate them all REALLY FAST and gave a few away. Took a picture but don't know what happened to it. So thanks Betty Crocker for letting us borrow your picture and of course promote your DELICIOUS brownies!!

Here we go...

I have gone from

a Scientist soon to be Doctor to
Wife to
Pregnant to
Mom of Twins (SURPRISE) to
Ice Cream Business Owner (WHO KNEW)
in 5 crazy years.

It has definitely been a whirlwind.

Our ice cream business just closed on Dec 26th so now I'm back at home with the twins FULL TIME and decided no time like the present to start blogging about things I love and this wild crazy journey called LIFE.
