Marshmallow Oreo Squares Dessert

Morning around here just got a little better and, well, so did their school lunch dessert.

Red White & Blue Glitter Slime

I think July is my favorite month. It's the one month my kids are all home from school for the entire month and our family probably spends the most time together just relaxing and enjoying each other's company.
