Last year, my sister began a new business called, Lil’ Miss Mae, selling accessories for babies, kids, and even me! I love the hair bling! I was so excited to be able to be there with her as she had her first official show. She had done an Open House for her Mary Kay and had her things out as well. When I saw the picture, I immediately started thinking okay, plotting how I was going to “redo” her display. Thankfully she wanted me to!  Here is her before, and then the after. 🙂

Learners Permit

It is so hard to believe that it has been 16 years since I first held Tyler in my arms. He is now 5’11”, still growing, and yesterday his Dad took him to the DMV to pick up his learners permit. It is unbelievable to me that this day has arrived. I am thrilled for him and scared for him. It is an exciting time for him and us, but I am in awe that it is here.

It’s Sticking!

Yesterday morning, those are the happy sounds I awoke too. The girls were overjoyed that it was not only snowing, but sticking. 🙂 I on the other hand wasn’t thrilled. I had the last day of my show to do, and snow is not bead buying weather.  Now that it is Monday however, I love the snow! I am thankful for the 2 hour delay that the kids had for school, we all needed to sleep in. Here are the girls as they are walking down to the bus stop. Allison of course already had a snowball!

Bagel Pizza’s

The other day Daylyn asked if she could make dinner. I have to be honest, as a busy mom,  sometimes I don’t have time to have my kids make dinner. I just need it done, and done fast, but I actually had time to have her make dinner. She wanted to make one of our families favorite easy dinners, bagel pizza’s.  Here she is making them.

Bagel Pizza’s

  • small bagels
  • jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
  • shredded cheese
  • turkey pepperoni

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place bagel halves on a cookie sheet. Spoon spaghetti sauce onto the bagels, sprinkle shredded cheese on, and then your turkey pepperoni or whatever other toppings you love. Bake for about 8 minutes, then take out and enjoy!

1. Place bagel halves on pan, and spoon on spaghetti sauce.

2. Sprinkle on some cheese

3. Add your toppings, we love turkey pepperoni!

4. Taste testing, got to make sure that the turkey pepperoni is good!

5.  Bake in oven until cheese is melted and golden brown.

Thank you for a wonderful dinner Daylyn!

and my favorite picture where she is saying, “Mom, my cheeks hurt from smiling!” 🙂

Trick or Treat!!!

What could be more fun for kids than dressing up, and getting candy with friends? My kids and I had a blast this year.  Travis went out with a couple of friends from school, the girls and I went with one of their friends, and Tyler doesn’t go trick or treating anymore, but helps hand out candy for us. Here we are all dressed up and ready for fun…well, except for me. I am really in costume the entire year, and on Halloween, I can reveal my true self! 🙂

A spunky witch!

A Gothic Empress!

Harry Potter!

Any guesses? He is a “cereal killer”

Halloween Brownies!

One of the kids favorite parts of any holiday are the parties at school. We try to send in goodies with them. This year Daylyn took the Marshmallow Mummies that we made earlier, and Allison wanted to bring brownies. I am sure that many other busy moms out there know that helping our children make things takes more time than just simply making it ourselves, but in my quest to have and create more memories with my kids, I thought it would be fun to have her help me make them. She was thrilled.

  1. Read instructions
  2. Pour brownie mix into bowl.
  3. Crack and add eggs.
  4. add water and oil
  5. stir, stir, stir!

  6. Pour the batter into pan and bake. While brownies are baking, run upstairs and get dressed for school!
  7. Let brownies cool and frost with orange frosting of course
  8. The big decision, what sprinkles to use? (I have a sprinkle addiction, so there is normally more than one choice available. LOL!)
  9. Sprinkle away!
  10. Smile, and look what you did. 🙂

Halloween Fun

Friday night, our Primary had a Halloween Carnival for our kids. I know my kids had fun, especially the girls. The boys had fun too, they got to scare kids in the Haunted Alley. I took some fun pictures of the girls that night. I plan on taking some more pictures tonight as well of the boys. 🙂
