Rainbows Everywhere

Well, it's that time of year again...St. Patrick's Day!  WAHOO!  No, I'm not Irish, at least I don't think I am, but I do love any excuse to get crafty and/or creative with my kids!  I can't believe I haven't blogged since December!  Life has been busy running two businesses and homeschoooling and a wild child toddler who keeps me on my toes 24/7!  I am an Independent Consultant with Thirty-One and Pampered Chef now.  I am putting PC on the backburner for now and focusing my time and energy on my Thirty-One business!  Never heard of Thirty-One?  Well, I hadn't either until my friend Alisha signed up and as soon as I saw the catalog I was IN LOOOOVE!  I'm totally hooked on purses and totes and wallets and all the cute stuff we sell!  Wanna check it out?  Here's my website:
I love my job!!!  :)

Ok, so back to the purpose of this posting...St. Patrick's Day fun!  I saw this great idea for RAINBOW WAFFLES on Random Thoughts of a Supermom blog and knew I had to make some for my kidlets!!  I asked my son if he wanted them for dinner tonight or wait for breakfast tomorrow and he opted to have them in the morning.  I whipped up a batch of waffle mix (recipe off the Bisquick box) and then separated them into 6 bowls and colored away!  I am IN LOVE with Wilton's icing coloring!  The colors are so much more vibrant than the regular food coloring I used to buy!  Never again will I use the other kind!  
Here's a picture of my waffle batter all colored and ready to be stored in the fridge overnight!  (Did you know that its said that if you leave your batter in the fridge overnight, you'll get fluffier pancakes?  I'm giving it a whirl and I'll let you know if it's true!)

I'm excited to see how they turn out and to see the smiles on my kids' faces!  I love being a mom!!

Another fun thing we did the other night was make rainbow cookies, shamrock cookies and swirl cookies!  Awhile back I had made lollipop cookies from a recipe from the Idea Room blog and this time I used the recipe from the blog: Amanda's Cookin.  The cookies turned out YUMMY and my kids (and husband) inhaled them!

Well, now I'm off to play some Leprachaun pranks for my kids to wake up to!  :)  Have a happy St. Patrick's Day!
