We also tried the rolls as a sandwich with beef and cheese in them. While I thought the pretzel flavor was a little overwhelming in the sandwich, I did enjoy the taste. It was a change from the usual bread sandwiches, and very convenient. These would be perfect to serve as appetizers at a party, or for family movie night.
You can find SuperPretzel's Bavarian Pretzel Rolls and Pretzel Sticks in the freezer section of your local grocery store. (Find SuperPretzel on Facebook too!)

Here is a fun, cheap activity that encourages your kids to work with geometric shapes and symmetry. Plus, when you’re done, nothing is wasted and clean-up is a breeze! All you need are a bunch of Popsicle sticks and some imagination to create a variety of snowflakes…
I told my boys what shape to start with and encouraged them to make their snowflakes as symmetrical as possible and here were some of our results:
The shapes we started with were (top left) square, (top right) triangle, (bottom left) pentagon, and (bottom right) diamond. My boys did this for over half an hour and it was so much fun to see how different their snowflakes were. My favorite part was that, when they were done, all they had to do was gather up the Popsicle sticks!
As an added bonus, my 7 year old even made a Popsicle stick rendition of me…

This will be my baby girl's first Christmas and I am so excited! I can't wait to see all three of my children during the holidays. There are so many wonderful things to look forward to from winter/Christmas crafts to the Christmas parade in our town. This year I just want to soak it all up, because time only seems to be going faster and I don't want to miss the wonder and awe in each of my children's faces.
