About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Goblin Snack Mix

  Want a recipe for a snack that will satisfy your sweet (and salty) tooth?  Here you go:

   Pour in a bit of mini chocolate chip cookies (we used Famous Amos), a spot of pretzels, a smidgen of Reese's Pieces candies and a dollop of candy orange slices and you are set for a party in your mouth.:)  

   No drooling on the keyboard, now...

  If you are feeling generous (or you just don't want it all going to your caboose) you can share it with friends.  Don't you love the orange pumpkin in the center?  Rhonda found them at Big Lots, so I had to head over there and get some for myself!

   Later in the day we did some sketching in the backyard.  I attempted to draw a pumpkin which my girls oohed and aahed over.:)  They certainly know how to make Mom feel good.

   Katie painted this today on a piece of plywood.  I think it is fabulous!  Love the colors...

   Hope you all had a good Monday.  Who got a chance to watch "The Amazing Race" on Sunday night?  Robin, did you watch it yet??

Perfect combination of things! I will have to make that for our halloween party!

I watched it! I like the brother and sister team-The son and mom team and I really like the girl that is "just" dating the runner but think the runner is a spoiled rotten woos. (That's as nice as I could put that!) Really, what is a smart attractive girl like her doing with him? Hello?!?
BTW: I can't believe how long Katie's hair is getting-It's beautiful! She is quite the artist!
