This is what happens when you give Madie the water hose and then the phone rings, so you run inside for a moment. You come back to find this silly face!

Bad hair day!

Makenna has the most hair I've ever seen on a baby, She was born with it. So this is usually what she looks like in the morning. So funny!

Spark up the fire pit, roasted marshmallows are perfect!

the night wouldn't be complete without hot apple cider.

For dinner something warm and hearty. I have a great chilly bean recipe. That would go great on some crusty french bread. Can't wait!

I made these last year with a friend, so good! White chocolate covered Carmel apples. Supper easy to make . Just dip in Carmel, then chocolate, then roll in crushed gram crackers. Yummy!

So I know bobbing for apples might not be a game the girls want to play, so I thought we could use hanging donuts.Who doesn't love those.

I love this, I was thinking of hanging leaves here.

girls night havest dinner

Found this at

So I have this great group of friends and we meet up every month for a girls night. November is my month so I thought it would be cool to celebrate the fall season. I love to pamper people when they come over and these mommies work hard, so i want it to look beautiful! I really want us to reflect on how blessed we are. Here are some ideas.

harvest treats

I was looking for some cute ideas for our harvest dinner party and I found this fun trail mix. Can't wait to try it, I love candy corn! It so takes me back to my childhood.

Love this picture, just makes me want to bake and drink hot cider.

fall is in the air!

So in southern California it usually doesn't start feeling like fall till it's almost over. That's one thing I don't like about California, oh how I wish we could feel the crisp air as we admirer the fall foliage.

okay so our candyland party is a week away and I'm feeling the pressure. There are so many things I still need to get done. It's like I have no other choice but to wait till the last minute. I'm trying really hard to enjoy these really important birthdays You don't turn one and five everyday. I can't believe how fast my girls are growing up. Maybe that's part of my frustration. Madie is starting kindergarden next week and I'm so not ready for that. She'll be fine, she can't wait to be with other kids again. It's just such a big, new chapter in her life. It reminds me of my school days and I know the happy times and the heartbreak. All the challenges She'll face, not that that's bad, but as a mom you never want to see your child in pain even if it's good for them. I remember five years ago when I was pregnant with Madison, people would tell me to make every moment last because they grow up so fast. It never really hit me till now. I still can't believe she's five, all those moments, all those laughs, tears, all the booboo's I kissed to feel better. She was my first baby and she has taught me so much. So much about life about her, about my self. So much about God and His amazing grace. She has changed my life and made me fight harder, I am the women I am today because I want more for her. My beautiful girl, so special , there's so much too see when I look into her big brown eyes.
