Happy "OCTOBER!"

First off, a hundred "thank you's" to all of my family and friends for the Many dinners and Treats that you have brought to our family! We are still being Fed...and LOVE it!

I Love this time of year, especially now since it has been in the 80's, it is so awesome. I look forward to Conference, the Pumpkin Patch, Corn Mazes, Daylight savings, Watching my kids change into 100 costumes, School parties, and MY Birthday!

Since it is October 1st, i decided to get all of my Halloween stuff out and Decorate. I changed all of my Wallflowers out and got all the Halloween Books and DVD's ready for the Month.


My favorite Wallflower is "Pumpkin" and it smells so good. I usually mix it with "Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin", and "Leaves"


Another favorite is FALL Cooking! Soups, Bread bowls, dinner in a pumpkin, etc. I can't wait to make all sorts of yummy Pumpkin desserts. One of my Favorites is Williams Sonoma "Sprinkles Cupcake mix" it is seriously so good.

After School today, i had some Surprises for the kids, and of course these Yummy Halloween Cupcakes...

They were so excited to see this...
Their Halloween Baskets filled with Halloween treats and Prizes! Glow in the Dark Jammies, and Their Costumes, which is a HUGE hit around here...
Oh and The baby got one this year too...


Hayes & Olivia are a little OBSESSED with Toy Story this year. Here they are watching the movie and wouldn't even look at me for a Picture. They are so cute, and get into total Character.

Happy October!!!

I LOVE that picture of Olivia & Hayes, oh my gosh, way too cute!

I am dying to put up Halloween decorations but I have this "pact" with myself to not start celebrating Halloween until we have celebrated Sela's birthday, I don't want anything to overshadow her day! So, this weekend I will get on it! But, way to go, Supermama!!!

Um...did you forget that you just had a baby and you're not supposed to be competing for mother-of-the-year right now. I'm thinking to myself, I haven't even fished out the Halloween bin after pleadings from my children and my baby's 5. So would you knock it off! (Actually, I'm stealing some of your ideas...)
