the strawberry patch barn sale (fall 2011)

I've finally dusted off the old camera
and uploaded a few (million) pictures.
(it's been quite a while... )
Anyway, here are some photos of my booth
at the last barn sale. 
I always mean to walk around
and take pictures of all the other goodies,
but once again, I didn't....

This pretty lady took care of my booth for me,
and she's as sweet as she looks.
Thank you, Kay!

pumpkin patch

The other day, 
we went to the pumpkin patch.

Here's a picture of my kid 
at the pumpkin patch.

Here's a picture of my other kid
(not) at the pumpkin patch.

We had fun at the pumpkin patch.

(This post is dedicated to my silly sister, Jessi.)

cats and dogs

We had a little play date the other day,
and I thought I'd go all Super Mom.

I made kitty cat pizzas
and puppy dog cupcakes!

I wish I could say I came up with these ideas on my own,
but they came from this super fun magazine.
It's filled with so many great recipes and ideas!

Kitty Cat Pizza Recipe
*tortillas for crust
*sprinkle with parmesan 
and toast for a few minutes to crisp the crust
*spaghetti sauce
*sliced pimientos and a little pepperoni for mouth
*black olives for eyes
*a couple of little pepperonis on the ears
*bake until cheese is melted

The kids did ok decorating their cupcakes...

and, I didn't say anything,
but mine was way better!

On another note...
I almost missed these
oh so carefully hidden carrot sticks.

it's potty time!

That's right!
One more member of this family is using the potty!

All it took 
was (more than) a few cartons of
Ben & Jerry's Phish Food...

and he might have eaten his weight in 
Scooby Doo Fruit Snacks!

But, it's all worth it to see him 
rocking the 
Buzz Lightyear briefs.

I kinda get a little emotional
every time he asks,
"Hey Mom, you wanna see the poop?"

it's a birthday

It's that time of year...
I knew we had a couple of birthdays coming up,
so I dug out the old checkerboard cake pans
and went to work.

I love these cakes...
I think I was in high school when I made my first one...
so, it was really just a few years ago...

I went with...
pink (strawberry)
 blue (blue dye #1)

And, I'll be the first to admit
that I'm no cake decorator.
But, I like cake...
I like playing with icing...
and, sometimes, when I'm cooking...
I pretend like I'm Martha Stewart.

He was the only one not worried
about his hair catching on fire.

He didn't want to cut his cake.
His exact words...
"Just leave it like this!"

And, I'm pretty sure he
would have eaten the entire cake
if we let him.

We didn't have to tell her twice...

Could she be any sweeter?
