Halloween is Coming!

Halloween is just around the corner! This year, as we have moved to a warmer area,  I am hoping that there will be no need to bundle the kids up under their costumes with winter jackets and snow pants!

I have been asking the kids what they wanted to dress up as to trick-or-treating and so far pirate has taken the spot light. Mostly with Amelia. She loves pirates! Yo ho ho, matey! Thats what she says when she sees a boat or anything nautical related. Logan has said Raph form TMNT as well as a banana. That boy has an imagination I tell you!

I think pirates! That may be what I will make them both (and mommy too!) to go out for halloween. I love dressing up too with the kids! You are never too old!

Here are a few ideas that I have come across as idea references for costume ideas.

What are you dressing your little ones up (or yourself!) as for All Hallows Eve this year?

Trying to Get Back in the Blogging Ways

Hello everyone! 

It has been a long time! I have been so busy these last few months! My family and I made the decision to move back to my hometown and start new there. It has been a hard few months yet great at the same time. The kids are loving it! Visiting grandma, grandpa, and great grandpa sure make them happy! Now we just have to wait these last few days until we get our very own place again. Its been hard living with my mom. Not having my own things, nervous the kids (or me!) will break things, and having to share a room with two toddlers. But I am grateful for them to have let us into their home. Thank you mom!

Anyways, I am trying to get some more posts done. I want to make at least two a week. Lets see how that works out! This eCard pretty much sums up my life!

Soon, I will let everyone know about my new venture with MelissaPelletier Sunset Gourmet! I will leave the link if you want to check out my site! Place an order even if you want, the food is amazing!

Pinterest Challenge: Make Your Own Paint

So this picture has been floating around Pinterest and Facebook, so I figure, I have a toddler why not give it a try! We had all the ingredients already at home, and it is a cheap way for the fun to last.

I made it exactly the way the recipe says above and it was way to thick, I had to almost double the water. It looked like paint, so we gave it a try on some paper. For the most part the paint did what it was suppose, make pretty colors on the paper, but afterwards once the paint dried it was easy to peel off and started crumbling. I had to throw his paintings away. It's fun for toddlers who just want to paint in the moment and don't really care about the result.

Do you have another paint recipe we can try?
