Million Dollar After School Treat

Every now and then I make a special after school treat for my two kids.  They both love strawberries and they really REALLY love whipped cream. 

So the other day I took a couple of these...
Some of these...
And a can of this...
And made this...
Such a simple thing but the big smiles and "Thank You Mom" that I get in response are worth a million bucks!  
It makes my day!

I am joining Simple Pleasures at A Collection of This and That.
This is such a great idea - a way to remind us to take pleasure in everyday things and sometimes it's the smallest things that make the biggest difference.  Thank you Dayle!
