Happy Birthday to my Husband

 I'm such a lucky girl to have such a wonderful husband. He's caring, thoughtful, a great dad, and boy does he love his video games:) I blog and do crafts, while he plays his video works out very well! Anyway, I wanted to share a little treat I made for him to have when he wakes up in the morning.  I like to put little things around the house to make him feel special on his birthday.  In college, my roommate put sticky notes around saying nice things about me on my birthday and I thought that was so cool.  So, that is a tradition in our house now.  I will put the sticky notes around the upstairs with nice messages, and then downstairs in the kitchen I'm going to put this little treat container:

Dynamite Treats!  I put M&M's in the middle of each roll.
Want to make one?

    1. Leah, he did love it after he realized what it was. My son was so excited for my husband to see it that he kind of demolished it. I put it back together and my husband was able to see what it was. He was like, "Oh, I thought it a bunch of rolled quarters!" ha! so funny!
