Ghost Ornaments

The Ghost ornaments on the Halloween tree are simply a box of plain white Christmas ornaments. I drew on some faces using a black marker. Easy peasy! This would be a fun project for the kids to do but since mine are in school right now, I got to have all the fun!

Halloween Tree

Working on some Halloween decorating and was inspired by some Halloween themed trees that I have been drooling over on Pinterest. Mine are no way in comparison to those gorgeous trees but I wanted to make one anyway. With 3 kids, there's not a chance of putting breakable ornaments on our tree like those that I've seen. So this is what I came up with...

It's been awhile...

Wow it's really been that long since I blogged last? If I could only tear myself away from Facebook and Pinterest than I would have more time for blogging! LOVE Pinterest!!!! It's my new addiction! Maybe I can pin my own stuff! lol...

Cookie Swap Party

So Ladybug & I are hosting our first ever Cookie Swap party for her & her gymnastic teammates in a couple of weeks. We are so very excited!!! The invitations were created using Smilebox and we attached a cookie cutter to the invite with a pretty red & white polka dot ribbon. The girls that received them were absolutely thrilled. It just warms my heart to hear my daughter and her friends be silly & giggly with excitement! Can't wait until the party!!!

I want pie!

First on my list of to-dos today was pie. Ladybug & I got up very early this morning to go get in line and get pies. This pie company called The Flying Saucer Pie Company has been in Houston a very long time. Every year for Thanksgiving, people stand in line to buy these pies for hours! Sometimes camping out overnight. They are that good!

I had the bright idea last night to go buy some instead of making them this year. The trip there from our house is about 30 minutes or so. We got closer to the place and the line was already about 7 blocks long. It was only 7:15am! The place opens at 7:00am. So Ladybug started whining and crying that she was NOT going to stand in that line. I'm like "c'mon sweetheart, I'll let you pick out any pie you want." She screamed back at me..."I'm not standing in line! Mom just make the pies OK!!!" So I have to make pies now.

I had to add ingredients for pies on my long list for the grocery store. But hey Ladybug was happy now. She got to buy a set of Barbie clothes from the toy aisle. That little turkey! Dare I ask her to go buy pies??? LOL...Next year for sure I'm going early and my pies!

A Sweet Pumpkin Treat

Well of course I had to use my new mini bundt pan that I bought on clearance last year! So I thought I would make the kid's teachers a yummy treat to say Happy Thanksgiving. I made a batch of pumpkin bread last night and used this pan...

They came out so beautiful and yummy and very cute!

All packaged up to be delivered by the kids in the morning!

...and those cute little circle tags? They were made by the beautiful & talented Ms. Linnette of Papaerglitter! Check out her freebies!
