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!!!"...lol. 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!

- 1 box of Spice Cake mix
- 15 oz can of pumpkin pie filling...the one with the spices mixed in
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup water
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9x13 pan with Baker's Joy. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and pour into prepared pan. Bake approx 45-55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.
This cake is so moist & yummy. It's hard to believe it only takes this to make. Serve with either whipped topping, a sprinkling of powdered sugar or make your own glaze. It's so good!
*Do not overbeat cake. This will make the cake dry. I usually mix my cakes by hand using a whisk. ENJOY!!! :)

This is how far behind I was in my blogging that I never posted pictures of my buggy's birthday parties. Oh well! Here are pictures of their birthday cakes at least! lol...I've always made the kids cakes for their birthday parties because I think it's way cheaper than store bought and a little more personal. We always fun picking out the themes for their birthday. Sometimes as early as the day after their birthday that we start thinking about the next! Daddy thinks we are crazy. I'm sure we are!
Yo Gabba Gabba birthday cake for Doodlebug's 2nd birthday party with matching goody bags.
Super Mario cake for Lovebug's 8th birthday party. All the kids knew right away each of the characters and were really surprised that Lovebug's mom made it!
...and then she was too busy playing with Daddy's new iPad to model this pink one! She's sooo fired!
Here are the Thanksgiving shirts I made. This turkey shirt was made using Ladybug's hands. It is my version of the one found on the page...http://www.themoodyfashionista.blogspot.com/.
This other turkey shirt is just one I made for my niece and have been selling them like hotcakes! Next year I'll have to start making them earlier and not wait til the last minute! Story of my life! But hey, sometimes I work better under pressure.
