Taylor's 2nd Birthday - Part 3: Dipped Oreo Suckers

I've been meaning to write this post as a part of my "Taylor's 2nd Birthday" series, but somehow time got away from me.  Well, I finally got around to posting it!  In case you're interested, Part 1 is here and Part 2 is here.

I wanted to share with you my new favorite party treat idea, Dipped Oreo Cookie Suckers.  I found this at one of my favorite new sites, HowDoesShe.com.  It is so full of fun and creative ideas.  I wish I had more time and a vinyl cutter machine (check the site out and you'll know what I mean) to try my hand at a few of the projects.  But when I spied this tutorial on their site, I thought, "I could do that"!

It is so easy and so yummy!  Here's what you need: 
1)  Oreos
2)  Lollipop sticks
3)  Melting Chocolate
4)  Sprinkles
5)  Lollipop bags
6)  Bag ties or ribbons

Believe it or not, you can get all these items at Walmart.  One stop shopping I tell ya! 

I used Golden Oreos for mine.  OMG!  These cookies by themselves are DELICIOUS!  Dip them in chocolate and sprinkles, and you've got a little bit of heaven....

My first attempt at these were at Taylor's Easter Egg Hunt that she hosted with her little friend Cameron back in April.  Walmart had colored melting chocolates that were Easter inspired.  I picked up a bag of yellow and orange.  The orange I saved for Taylor's birthday party.  Always thinking ahead!  I also found a spool of Easter ribbon for .99!  And you probably can't tell, but the sprinkles were even Easter inspired!  See the little bunny rabbit ears?  So adorable!  The little blue bucket, I found in dollar bin at Target, which I later reused at Taylor's birthday party as well.  What can I say, I'm a thrifty mom!


I made a batch for Taylor's birthday that followed the Nemo inspired color theme, orange and blue. 


Give them a try.  I promise you won't be disapointed!  Send me pictures of your creation!  Enjoy!

Ah-B

Wubby, blankie, banky, lambie... there are a ton of names for security blankets.  Taylor has named hers "Ah-B".  Pronounced exactly how it sounds.  We can never leave the house or go to bed without it.  Taylor cuddles and hugs Ah-B like it's a real person.  It must be a comfort mechanism, but Taylor also likes to pull and pick at Ah-B, causing huge holes.  She also likes to wrap the strings around her feet and fingers.  We've replaced Ah-B twice already, worried that the damaged Ah-B could potentiall create a safety issue. 

Here is Ah-B #1.  Notice the huge hole.  We replaced it because we were afraid she would get wrapped up in the hole.


Here is Ah-B #2.  Not even 2 weeks old, Taylor managed to pull it apart already. 


I don't have a picture of Ah-B #3, but Taylor wasn't interested in it at all.  She has proclaimed it to be "Not Ah-B" and tossed it aside in defiance!  Kids!
