Ode to New Moon

Yes I'm one of those crazy Twilight fans and saw the midnight showing with a bunch of sisters and my daughter. Then after a few hours of sleep went with my whole family to see it again. Just as good the second time. And I'm a big Jacob fan- what a hottie!

Green Eggs and Ham Anyone?

Well for Halloween I made orange pumpkin pancakes and I suggested green eggs but no one wanted them until the next day Nick said "you know that thing you talked about? I want that." I said green eggs and he said "Yes, Green Eggs and Ham!" So I pulled out my handy green food coloring (I use my colors to add that perfect touch to a favorite treat or meal) It is a trick my Mom taught me when I was a kid. I remember for my birthday getting green cream of wheat and pink milk (my favorite colors at the time- come to think of it- they are still my favorite colors) Anyway I cut up some ham sandwitch meat and added to the gorgeous looking green eggs and Nick was as happy as a clam or should I say as happy as Sam.

A Hauntingly Fun Season

Well we've had fun picking and carving pumpkins, going to see the Witches at Gardner Village with cousins, going to church parties, school parades and the good old Trick or Treating with friends in which my kids have all graduated to "the pillowcase" and are all on their own. They even went for about 2 hours and got more candy than they sould eat in a year but I'm sure they will manage to eat it within the week- except for Sydney who saves it forever. We actually had to clean out her room and get rid of last Halloweens leftovers and some Easter candy too. So this will be a long post with tons of picks. I haven't had time to play with scrapbooking for awhile so it's just photos for now.
