something for that special man in your life





sometimes it's hard to think of something
for that special father in your life

i feel like i've made/done every creative thing
i can think of for my husband...
he already has the kids' handprints hanging in his office
he has a dog tag necklace with their initials on it
he has special artwork done by the kids
he has cufflinks with his initials on them...


i kept things simple this year
and decided on a delicious treat
he can sit outside in the summer night
and enjoy with his family
and i personalized a little photo
he'll get in a frame...nothing crazy
but things i think he'll definately appreciate!

 

{Brownies}

4 squares unsweetened chocolate
3/4 cup butter
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour

{Toppings}

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 bag mini marshmallows


Microwave chocolate and butter until melted in large bowl. Stir in sugar, eggs and vanilla. Stir until well mixed. Stir in flour. Spread in greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. (do not overbake, remember brownies are meant to be a little gooey) Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over warm brownies and spread over the top to form the first layer. Before the chocolate cools sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over the chocolate. Let cool. Finally spread a thick layer of mini marshmallows over the graham cracker crumbs and broil in the oven until marshmallow's turn golden brown. Let cool, or serve gooey and messy the way a smore should be! Enjoy!



this photo was taken about 3 days ago
he's teaching our son to ride
his bike with no training wheels
i loved it because it's a little bit blury
and a little bit candid at the same time



so i hopped on over to Picnik.com
and edited it a bit
rounded the corners, changed the color a tad
and added a little quote
that sums up just how my kids feel
about their daddy!
