Another snow day!!!Crazy, I can't complain. I am a bit stir crazy as are my kids but we have gotten a tone of quality time together! So I think we've done just about every activity we could in our house so today we had a little photo shoot. They are so sweet. Jack wasn't in the best mood but I still got a few shots! I hope everyone is able to see the bright side of this and is having a Merry white Christmas! Joy to you all...

we Love these Muffins. Okay so I first tasted these scrumcious things 2 years ago at a MOPS event. Courtny had made them. I got the recipe and then never could remember it. Recently I asked for it and when she told me, One can of pumpkin and one box of any cake mix, I realized how gone my brain was. Anyway the kids and I got down to it and let mw tell you...I can't believe I waited 2 years. These are so good. You ought to try. So, thank you Courtny, these are a new family favorite.

This year we decided to try this huge pumpkin farm. It was awesome. First off, thank you Jesus, I couldn't have asked for a better day. It was one of those crisp but warm and sunshiney days! The kids, big and little, got to do slingshoting of pumpkins, a huge corn maze, and haystack pyramid, tractor rides, and not to mention search for enormous pumpkins! We went with our buddies Jason, Janielle, Riley and Lauren. We had a blast, Livi got little tired in the maze though. Afterwards we were STARVING and went to T.G.I.Fridays to eat...yum! This year I am truly thankful for the gorgeous colors sitting on my porch for me to gaze at!
This year in Leiu of birthdays for Brandon and I, and Halloween, we decided to throw our 1st annual Murder Mystery Bash. It was a roaring 20's theme called "Murder at the Soggy Biscotti." It was so much fun, a learning expierience, but fun. The bad, we were waiting until the day of (Nov. 1st) to buy all the costume and decor because of Halloween discounts, and you can only cook so far in advance so a bit of stress fell on that day. The good, Brandon did an awesome job with the details and Er and I had fun planning, everybody dressed up great, and all went as planned. I highly reccomend throwing one of these especcially if you have a hidden acting passion! It was great. I'm thankful to all who came.
