A big thanks to my first guest blogger (blog hogger), Amber from mythreebittles! You can find her on FacebookTwitter, and Pinterest.


Hey guys, I’m Amber. I wanna say thanks real quick to Heather for letting me be a blog hog for the day, so thanks!! I’m a mom of three all under the age of 4. Basically my life gets pretty crazy sometimes. (Like daily!, like 43076029438 times a day)

So today I thought I’d show you a few things I do to entertain my crazies.

Sometimes we go to the park!

Go on and mix up your dry ingredients.

Cook over medium heat until mixture forms a ball.

Then dump onto counter or wax paper and knead, knead, knead the kool-aid into it.
