I was observing my kids and their best friend playing a game of "Scene It Jr" the other day and could not help but get sucked in. This game is a DVD interactive board game that asks questions pertaining to a variety of TV shows, movies, commercials, etc... Keep in mind that this game is for ages 8 and up. I guess I fit in the "and up" category and decided to see if I could find the answers to these kiddie questions. I truly realized that I was not as smart as I thought! The girls were coming up with the answers quicker than I could absorb the question or puzzle. Let's just say if I were actually playing, more than likely I would be stuck someplace between 'start' and maybe four or five spaces!

1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract (almond is good too!)
12 vanilla wafers
fresh strawberries or cherry pie filling
Beat the cream cheese until fluffy and add sugar, mix well. Add eggs one at a time, beating well and last add vanilla. Place one vanilla wafer in paper cup lined muffin pan(s). Spoon cream cheese mixture over wafers. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. You might be tempted to bake longer but don't! Leave in muffin pan; cover and chill overnight. Serve with fruit of your choice or by itself! ENJOY!!
You can double the recipe of even cut it in half and it comes out the same every time. I have been making these for over 10 years now and we love it~!

I was at the post office this morning patiently waiting in line to ship a package. I glanced over and noticed a cute little girl (probably about 3 years old) and her equally cute little mom. The mom was filling out a paper while her daughter was squirming around chatting to herself. She had one of those disposable cameras in her hand and was obviously trying to figure out how to take a photo. She was pressing the button but it just would not do anything. Her mom glanced down for a moment and decided to rewind the camera for her child and handed it back to her. The child then aims at her mom and her mom smiles really big and there it went...FLASH! The little girl cheered and smiled and everyone around them did the same. It was so sweet the way this mother and daughter looked at each other. I bet that photo will come out really nice! Well, maybe half of mom's head will be chopped off but I think it will be one of those precious shots you will always remember!

I was reading an article online this weekend and came accross a new product made by Anheuser-Busch called 'Spykes'. If you look at the photo to the right, it almost looks like cute bottles of nail polish, right? It is a malt beverage with 12% alcohol (like wine) and comes in 4 attractive flavors with caffieine and herbs. The beverage is being marketed as a flavor boost to beer and other drinks and being "the perfect shot". With prom time nearing, some health advocates and law enforcement are viewing it as being a hazard for teens since it is so small in size, it can easily be slipped into purses or pockets to conceal it. Also the retail is about 75 cents to 1 dollar making it more affordable for teens to get their hands on some.
