delicious little acorns

So, you all know I'm crazy...
here's what I'm doing today (when I should really be preparing to die in the most deathly winter storm that's headed our way...my 72 hr kit is strapped to my back while I'm doing it, don't worry... I do have priorities though... :)
Here's how to make darling little acorn's to adorn pie's or cupcakes or just have in a bowl for thanksgiving snacks... (come on - be crazy with me)

here's what you need...
and whatever kind of these you like best... I particularly like carmel filled
unwrap the kiss, and glue to the mini nilla wafer with melted chocolate
let set in freezer for 30 sec.
add a dot of melted chocolate to top and dip in chocolate sprinkles
seriously... aren't these the cutest things you've ever seen?
They don't taste to bad either....
...just imagine them on a slice of pumpkin pie.. won't that be cute? Or on top of a yummy pumpkin or gingerbread cupcake.
or just in a bowl ready for the grabbing... watch out for squirrels.
p.s. I got this idea out of the "What's New Cupcake" cookbook. The link will take you to this great blog, if you go there be sure to look for the cute indian corn cupcakes.. genius!
I'm a copy cat... that's what I do best!
Happy Thanksgiving

The projects I start....

get the idea? there's a great tutorial linked below....

Break out the scissors folks...I'm sewing again! Don't I do this every year? Well, Tis the Season I guess... so I shouldn't be blogging about these things, it will ruin the surprise. If you don't like surprises ruined... turn your head now!

(This top thing is some scraps.. thought it would make a cute pillow)

remember this pattern? I blogged about it along time ago... It's from this website... "Crazy Mom Quilts" great tutorial on how to make this cute quilt and no peicing triangles involved.

I can't wait to see the finished product. I'll keep you posted.

Our idea of fun!

Flag football: favortie play... "BARKING DOG."
right after the snap, 2 linemen get down on their hands and knee's and bark like crazy dogs. Thus creating a distraction and a T.D.!!!! It works!!!
