My Peeps Family Night.

Tonight was a fun one! All about my favorite Peeps.

First on the agenda, was to be Peeps pancakes. My attempt at stick figure shaped pancakes (how hard can that be?). After they cooked, everyone got to decorate their Peep with powdered sugar, blueberries, chocolate chips, bananas, and syrup. Wouldn’t have been all that hard, if I had remembered to put the eggs in the pancake mix. Milk and Bisquick make biscuits. Biscuits don’t cook well in shapes on a griddle.

Second was to take Peeps, to some of our favorite Peeps. One thing I do love about where we live is how close everyone lives to each other. We hit six homes in 80 minutes. Not too shabby. So blessed by our friends.

We visited the adorable Josh, Ashley, Jaden, Trace, and Liam.

Next was Ryan, Isabel, Sophia, Luke, and Jen’s leg and top of her head (as she forgot we were stopping by and wasn’t properly outfitted.) Love these guys, still laughing over our stop there…

Gina, Ella, and Joie who greeted us with cookies back. G just has her act together like that.

Nicole, Nat, and Kyle who always make us laugh. Always.

Then came Barry, Tammy, Max, and Taryn. The reigning king and queen of the pajama pant.

Last but not least was Scott, Lisa, David, and Grace…owners of the cleanest and calmest house in Elk Grove.

Last for the night, came the Peep diorama. One of my fabulous readers Elisabeth sent me the link to this super fun craft idea. It actually was the inspiration for this family night. We spent the rest of the night, in the dining room, making our own Peep dioramas. The only rule was to put the Peeps in some fun location.

Here’s the finished result…

Taylor’s Peeps hit the beach complete with magazines, Emma’s sixteen Peeps hit Peepland where a concert was in full swing, my Peeps were tearin’ it up on the dance floor at a swanky party.

Cameron’s Peeps became head mounts in a mansion while angel Peeps flew guard outside.  Shawn’s Peeps were chillin’ pre concert in a hip green room.

    LOVIN’ It. I knew there was a reason I wanted to find your blog. I hope you don’t mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you. And Thursday family nights sound like a wonderful tradition. Last night our family snuggled up in our bed complete with popcorn (don’t mind the little messes we made) and stayed up past bedtime laughing and giggling with a good movie.

    I have to tell you that Peeps dioramas are the most funniest thing I have ever seen. My grandmother insists on sending peeps to all the “kids” (her three way grown children, and myself) in the family, yet none of us enjoy eating them. I think I may have found the perfect solution! =)

    Have a great weekend!

    I love the dioramas. What a fun project. Although I think Grandson would eat them all first!
    How fun that you went visiting. Reminds me of Progressive Dinners when I was in Job’s Daughters. One house would be appetizers, next soup, then main dish, etc. Especially fun @ Christmas when everyone had their decorations up.
    Am following you too now! Thanks for the follow.
