**Monkey SEE Monkey DO, FOOTBALL Friday & my pretty girl**

First off...
I am hooked on this certain show on TLC
(sometimes it runs on Discovery too).
It's about a family of 10. Ya know...8 + 2 = 10. I'm sure you know what show I'm referring to.
Ok ok I'll admit it....

I am addicted to Jon & Kate + 8.
look, they even have a blog - The Gosselin's
(there...WHEW, I feel better)

On their show a few weeks ago they were making a YUMMY treat for the li'l ones. It's called Monkey Munch. I thought it looked so yummy!! I really wanted to try it. I knew my kids would love it...

So I set out looking for the recipe. I found it. I was so excited going to the grocery store buying all the ingredients. I was even more excited making it last night.
I was like a little kid helping their mom in the kitchen.
I even did a little monkey jig (LOL...stop laughing!) while I was getting it all ready :) It turned out SO GOOD!
It's delish and I'm taking a few mini baggies of it tonight to the football game :) Who needs game refreshments when Monkey Munch is on the menu! LOL!!
I was so excited making it- I didn't even snap a pic of it...sorry!!

Here is a link where you can find photo's and the recipe! *Jon & Kate + 8's Monkey Munch*
So tonight is FOOTBALL FRIDAY!! The kids high school football team, the Richland Rebels remain UNDEFEATED!! 5 games down - #6 is tonight!
I really REALLY like high school football in the fall :) It's so fun to watch, there's a chill in the air.....ahhhhh!! BUT my most fave time is of the entire night is halftime. Why you ask? Because I get to see this:

Right there in the very front (3rd person from left) is this beautiful girl:
I'm so proud of her! :) Tonight they're playing all 4 of their songs from their show this year called "BELIEVE". Tomorrow they are hosting a marching contest - they are one of the 3 exhibition bands. They'll perform at 9:45 PM.
You go Rebel Band - we "believe" and are all so proud of everything you guys do!
SO now you know what's going on tonight and tomorrow night :)

I am planning on working on lots of scrap projects this weekend. :) Can't WAIT to show you guys!! I'll be sharing another sneak of Label Tulip with you soon too!! :)
Like I always say....
Don't be shy, say HI!
I love all of your comments :)

Boy, your happiness is just infectious, Leslie! I love that you are so happy and are enjoying life. Sounds like you're going to have a great time at the game tonight. Kudos to your daughter!
Can't wait to see your scrappy projects.

Sounds like a wonderful weekend! I too love high school football, but we will settle for 6 and under soccer tomorrow! He has his pictures taken tomorrow and he got a big ole shiner in school on Thursday! This should make for a perfect scrapbook page. Also, you enabler, I signed up for the kit and can't wait to get it!!!!! Have a great one and I want to try the monkey munch!

What a fun weekend!!!! I love the pics of your beautiful girl! I LOVE high school football! The cool weather, the cheering...ahhh!!! :) I used to watch John & Kate until I found out how much they made per show, and got annoyed! I think it is something like 65K PER episode. That is crazy! I hope that your weekend is fabulous Leslie!!!! Hugs! :)

I happened to watch the episode with the monkey munch too. But, the funny thing is I have been making this for years and years and I have only known it as "puppy chow". (I didn't make up the name).

Can't wait to see your LT layouts, you'll do an awesome job I'm sure!
