Snowmen Treats

When Liz was little I was never the “Pinterest” Mom, the one that comes up with adorable treats for the whole class and looks perfect while doing so. In fact most of the time cupcakes were store bought and no one seemed to be any the wiser. But as the empty nest sets in I find myself with a little more time to do “Pinterest” Mom things, ironic right?? While I’m positive that I won’t ever be the perfect Pinterest Mom or even a perfect Mom, what is most important in the memories you build with your kids as they are growing up. Take the time to enjoy them while they are younger, try to be the “perfect” mom in the moment and don’t get so caught up with all of the to do’s that you forget to live in the moment. So without further adieu I give you these fun Snowmen Treats.
