Let the Halloween Craft week continue

Made with Egg Cartons (NO the ones we made were not nearly so perfect, I ended up paper macheing them too to make them more round then we'll paint them)

I LOVE THESE NEXT FEW MONTHS! so much fun to have, eat and make. These were they attempts this week for Halloween. The paper mache pumpkins will be painted tomorrow, Payten has had a blast with the spiders.....she hid one to scare daddy when he finds it.

So the last month I have been spending ALL my spare time in microsoft word. This Project took FOREVER but it is done and I love it! All my recipes used to be in a box with no dividers and i had to flip through 100+ cards everytime i needed a recipe, or my handwritten book that I started back in highschool. I am SO excited to have all my recipes organized, together and in word. I can email quickly or print off whenever anyone wants one or I can find them quickly when wanting to use one!!!! Every section has it's own index and the book has a color coded index for the sections, ahhhh :) love it

Ahhhh I just saw my first Twilight movie commercial on tv! I'm sure it's been on before but it's my first time.....sooooo excited

Let the Halloween Continue

So I decided that this year I am going to do a count down to each holiday and do something fun here's attempt number one....hahaha the point is Payten had fun!!! we won't be opening an etsy stop anytime soon, but fun!

Can't get enough of this Strawberry

Bath Crayons

Ok whoever created this idea is pure genius!!!! Payten spends FOREVER coloring on the walls and then it just wipes away! Of course Riley loves watching.

Let the Holidays BEGIN!

Carving pumpkins is always fun!!! While carving, the seeds looked good so I thought maybe this year I'll stop being lazy and actually pick them all out to bake them....I found the BEST way to make them, Worcestershire sauce!!!!! OHHHH YEAH. I coated them well in it then 1/2 through I coated them again with a little salt....ahhhhh we rationed them for like a week. The carving was fun too but uuuummmmm pumpkin seeds!
we lit them after the bath and clean up
PS- Sometimes it's easy to get a little excited and carve your pumpkins 3 weeks early.....don't! lesson learned when they rotted, fell off the wall, and oozed everywhere.
