Halloween Fun

I have to say, I still love dressing up in silly costumes. But even more fun is getting to dress up my little stinker in something fun. He is at an age now where he actually likes dressing up. He loves putting his dad's shirts over top his outfit (usually his arm is through the head hole and the shirt is dragging on the ground) or socks pulled right on up to his hips! I find that even at nearly 2 years old, he already loves to entertain all of us by his crazy sense of style. So this year I decided to wait and see what he was interested in, and based his costume on that. He has been a bit interested in his Daddy's beard. He walks around telling everyone to look at "Liam's beard." So I decided that he would get just that for Halloween! My little man was a lumberjack this year! Still can't believe he stood still long enough to paint on that beard. Check him out!

What did you/your kids dress up as this year?

Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice!

photo link

It is still rainy and cold in my backyard. All I want to do on days like these is sew, bake and be domestic. If only I had the recipe to make a good pumpkin latte. Maybe I can convince my husband to pick one up for me on his way home from work. {wishful thinking} I love fall!

Wanted to share a recipe I learned from my mother. While I was over this week she made these! Not only were they amazing, they made the house smell like fall! It is beyond simple. It only calls for two ingredients and is low in calories. Score!

Here is what you need:
1 15 oz. box of spice cake mix
1 large 15 oz. can of pumpkin puree

Mix together until a smooth consistency. If it is too dry, you can add a little water to smooth out the lumps. Lightly spray muffin tin, or use paper cups. Follow directions on the back of cake mix box. (each one is a bit different)

If you want to make them a bit more amazing, you can add a cream cheese frosting! (But they don't need it) And that is that! Hoping to be productive this weekend. Need to finish up some of Liam's Halloween costume details. He is going to love trick or treating! Happy Weekend!!!

On Rainy Thursdays

Today has just been one of those non productive, stay in your pj's sorta days. It's been cold, rainy and gray. Thought I would share something that made me smile today! Coldplay came out with their official Paradise video this week. (Only 4 days until the official album release) It's just plain fun!

Moments Like These,...

I was privileged to take some photos this week of my baby brother Luke and his lovely fiance Allyson. The weather was perfect for an outdoor photo shoot! Still practicing my photography skills! They were so sweet to allow me to spend the evening with them. Can not wait until I gain a new sister next year!! Love you two, and wish you many wonderful years together!
