Pumpkin Carving

Ah, Fall is in the air! We actually ran the heater for the first time this season, this morning, because it got down in the 40's last night! Brrrrrr!! Last night the Rocket Scientist and kids all had fun carving the Great Pumpkin. Sweet Girl came up with the design, and they all took a turn carving the expression out. Lots of fun, even with removing the yucky pumpkin guts. On halloween night, our church is having a Trunk or Treat outreach at a local high school, and we're decorating our van in a pirate theme. I think I still need to get a few things for it. I'm not quite certain how we'll dress up, but I'm sure whatever we come up with will be fine. Besides, all that the kids will want is the candy!!

Weekend Fun

Today after church, sweet girl and I are off to see the big HSM3 movie. I can't wait to see which big film this one rips off. The first one was like Romeo and Juliet, the second one was an exact copy of Dirty Dancing, and now this one. I hear it is a mix of quite a few movies, so we'll see!

Yesterday Little Man had a BIG birthday party to go to at one of his little friend's house. Wow, did she go all out and did we have a great time! It was a halloween theme and the kids all went dressed up in their costumes. Of course half of Little Man's batman costume was off once he jumped in the princess bouncy house. Then the shoulder repair I did right before we left didn't hold and it tore. They had the bouncy house, decorate your bucket, carnival games, scavenger hunt, a pinata, bouncy ball races, prizes, pizza, food...it was great! Such a fun time! Ah, to be a young mom again.... lol

Candy Corn

It's that time of year again, when the stores are stocked with fall sweets and the sweet tooth comes out stronger and stronger! I'm going to try to lay off sweets for a while. I know this is the worst time of year to do that, but I've got to lose some weight and get my body into shape before winter hits. ha! My friend Melissa (at MCC designs) was telling us about her candy corn addiction, and I think I made it worse for her by suggesting mixing them with peanuts and m&m's. Here are some YUMMY recipes you can put out and will get devoured in no time flat!

Great candy bar recipe tastes in a bowl:

Snickers - candycorn, salted dry roasted peanuts, m&m's
PayDay - candycorn and dry roasted peanuts
Chunky with raisins - candycorn, peanuts, m&m's and raisins

Happy Snacking!!

Holiday Cards

Aren't these the cutest cards? I made them at my friend Annette's CTMH card class. She is SO talented at desiging. I love everything she makes! A few of these will go to my god-daughter.

Someone had a birthday!

Little man turned 4, and we all went to Chuckee Cheese for the afternoon. Luckily a few of us were able to sneak away to the scrapbooks and bead store across the street. He was thrilled with the games, but wasn't too sure about the lifesized chuckee that walked around. After all was said and done, he turned in his tickets for a big chuckee cheese gumball machine! It is now hid away, since he doesn't know how to "chew" gum correctly. Why dad let him get that is beyond me. lol It was great to have college boy home for the weekend. We miss him already!
