Busy Busy

I still need to update with pictures from when we went camping over Labor Day weekend. However this was not the day to this.

Today was a day of baking and running errands. It started off with my Mormon Mimosa and an almond poppy seed muffin ;) I needed a pick-me-up after an early morning.

And of course tonight is Young Womens, which I am excited about, and I was asked to make cookies. I have wanted to try this new recipe for awhile, but I haven't had some of the ingredients or I wasn't in the mood. So my young women are my guinea pigs. With my list of other things to do I decided to make these first.

Next on the list was cinnamon rolls. I usually would not decide to make them unless I was asked, and well last night we had the missionaries over for dinner and it was transfer day and so every transfer I make cinnamon rolls for the missionaries...however...the only thing that Elder McClure said he wanted was cinnamon rolls and I needed the oven for tater tots to finish off the dinner, you can guess what won. I promised the Elders cinnamon rolls for today for lunch.

After the baking was done and the Elders had come we (Amy, all 3 kids and I) went to Michael's. We needed to get a few things for a cake we are being hired to make!! Yeah!!!! My first paid cake!!!
On to the craft store that carried butcher paper for my fence in the front room :) (that will be another post)
 So my day wasn't totally swamped, but we came home and I left to head to the dentist. I had gotten two teeth filled recently and may I say that before I went and got them filled I was in NO PAIN. However I have been for the last week. He ended up filing down one of the fillings and that has helped a lot, but he informed me that it will still be sore for awhile. Dang it!!!! I guess that means another Mormon Mimosa to help my day start off good is calling my name tomorrow morning. Yes I can hear into the future :)

Halloween is a coming!!

You may find me wierd, and well I may be a bit, but I love halloween!!! I LOVE Halloween!! I think I love the decorating, the candy, the haunted house, the trying to be brave, but hoping to be scared, and making cute outfits for my kids!!!
Talking with my Sis, Kate, we decided we want to have a halloween party this year! I have been so psyched since then! If I could I would start putting up decorations right now!!! I want to sell everything I can to get money for decorations, meaning fabrics, candles, fake bones, and paint to make my own tombstones.
I know my front yard would be perfect for a grave.
Cemetery Kit
I have rocks throughout the whole front yard, not to mention the perfect tree for my ghost to play.

And of course you know that every spooky graveyard needs bats!

And that is only for the outside! In the front room I want to put up a fence along the walls.

I have, well...the best way to describe it is plant hanging hooks in the front room. What better way to put them to use than to put chandeliers hanging from them.

Other things I am in love with:
    Witches’ Legs Cupcake Picks

I am going to make the candles (already have the white candles from my wedding) and yes I want the candle holder too.

James thinks this next one would scare the girls to death, and well my plan would be to put it right on the walking area into the kitchen :) (kind of like a do not enter sign for the girls)
This would be perfect for an invite to the party that Kate and I want to throw.

And there it is, a small portion of what I want. Yes I know there is a difference between wants and needs, but one day I will have some of these things.
