Mother's Day Tea

Thursday morning was the Mother's Day Tea at Campbell's preschool and Melinda and I attended. We showed up and they had all the tables set so nicely and all the kids were so excited for everyone to be there. They were all sitting at their tables while the mom's sat at the big tables and enjoyed finger sandwich's, scones, fruit and tea. It was so nice and the mom's that put it together really did a great job. Melinda and I were impressed by the tablescapes.

After tea, Campbell's class got up and sang a really cute song. They were all kind of nervous but they were so cute! The younger class sang a song afterwards and then both classes joined together for the last song.

The Mom's that set the event up, made a little recipe book and had them waiting on the tables. I picked a recipe out of it and Campbell and I made it Thursday night. They were Chocolate Oatmeal Bars and they turned out so good. I will include the recipe.

We had a great time at Campbell's school. I always enjoy watching her interact with the kids in her class.

Chocolate Oatmeal Bars

Melt 2/3 Cup butter, add 1/2 cup white Karo syrup - Stir.
Add in, 3 tsp vanilla, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt and 4 cups oatmeal.
Mix well.

Place in a greased 13x9 inch pan. Press down. Bake at 425 for 8-10 minutes. Watch so it will not burn, but turns a golden brown. After cooled, melt together 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup peanut butter. Spread on bars. Chill before serving.
