Peep Show

Don't worry, this post is G-rated.  I'm talking about these:
It's a well-known fact around my house that I can't stand eating anything marshmallow-y.  Now, I love Rice Krispy Treats and all that marshmallow goodness, but I can't handle plain marshmallows, whether sugar-coated or not.  So, I was less than thrilled on Saturday when Hubby insisted on buying some Peeps.  Yes, the kids love them, but I thought we'd agreed to limit how much candy we brought into the house and we'd already done our backyard Egg Hunt.  We really didn't need any more hyper-inducing confections. 

So, that evening, he started handing out Peeps on toothpicks (like little stick puppets) and told the kids they had to give me a Peep Show before they were allowed to eat them.  I was treated to a variety of Peep antics -- dancing Peeps, fighting Peeps, jokes and stories.  I have to admit, I laughed and enjoyed my "show."

I guess maybe Peeps are okay, after all.

Ha! Cute story about your peeps. I have to admit, they are super cute and yummy to boot :-)
I loved reading everyone's story about their childhood home. I felt the same way about going in to look, but for some reason I felt compelled that day.
take care,
jen :-)

I'm in agreement with you on marshmallows. But my kids are crazy about them. How totally fun! I'll keep this in mind for next Easter.

P.S. I just heard the other day about someone making Rice Krispie treats out of Peeps. That I'm willing to sacrifice Peeps for. :P

Oh that made me laugh! I'm the same way, I hate the taste and texture of marshmallows. I'm here from the Thursday blog hop and enjoying what I've seen of your blog. I've got to read more when I have more time!
