Kids in Costume

We didn't plan on Trick-or-Treating this year.  We went on a little trip to Cinci (more on that soon) and were planning on not getting back in time. 
Well.  We made it back in time.  In fact, JUST in time.  To the point we walked in the door, scrambled through the old costumes/dress up bin and found some pretty fun costumes.  I had some pretty things for Gwyneth (a pretty princess/a little chicken or lion/a pretty witch, etc.) but she insisted on the skeleton!

More cake pops!

I just can’t resist these things!  Gwyneth and I made a bunch to take to preschool for her Halloween party.  It was so much fun, and we loved how they turned out!


We thought it would be fun to use a pumpkin as a holder.  We   just had to decorate it! DSC_0718

Gwyneth was so proud of our work, and excited to share with her friends!  We had fun making memories…and that is what it’s all about.

School Pictures!

The kids brought home their school pictures this week.  I was so excited to see them!  Funny story..  Haydn ran out of the school with his packet in his hand.  I thought, "That's a good idea!  They are usually crumpled from being in his bookbag.  They'll be nice and straight!"  He handed them over, and there were no 8X10s or the picture CD.  Anyway, long story short.  An aide found half of his pictures FACE DOWN on the BOYS' BATHROOM FLOOR!!  Oh, Haydn!  Fortunately, they were perfectly fine.  On to the pictures!

Can't wait to cut them apart and hand them out!  (I promise I will do this promptly- I'm so bad at doing that)

Cake Pops!

Our church put a baby shower on for Colleen and Peyton yesterday.  I was in charge of food, so I enlisted the help of my mom to make Cake Pops!  We had so much fun planning and making these, and I think everyone enjoyed this special touch to the shower. 

The theme was Yellow & Pink

The flavors!

The food table.  Ellen brought fruit salad.  I made homemade cheese crackers in cheddar & parmesan.  Amber made the pink punch, Michelle did the coffee punch, and Mom brought the lemonade.   I think it turned out great!  (Heather did the decorating)

Family Picture

At one of Hutch's Birthday parties, we rounded everyone up for a big old fashioned family picture!  Wow.  That's a lot of people!  Amazingly, we only had to take two!  AMAZINGLY!
