Fourth of July baking


Happy Christmas!

It’s that time of the year again! So excited to start decorating for Christmas although I’m not allowed to do so yet.

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and then Christmas is just 50 days away!


To celebrate though, I redid my blog to reflect the holiday cheer! I hope everyone else gets in the mood too!

Happy Holidays peeps!

Pumpkins Part 1

The first thing we did was pick out our pumpkins from the batch and then the group started carving.  pumpkin 27pumpkin 29pumpkin 34pumpkin 26

My oldest son decided he wanted to do a fairy on his pumpkin.

My second son decided he was going to carve a small pumpkin face.

Happy Halloween everyone!

Halloween Jello Shots

Keep in mind, these are for a work function so we didn’t add any alcohol to them. But aside from that, these are fun little treats to make whether for a social function or a kid’s party!

To start out with, I had 3 containers of jello. Lime Green, Grape, and Orange. I bought some Halloween themed sprinkles at Walmart, a package of Dots, and used the serving proportion cups.

Next we just mixed the jello.

Poured it into the serving cups with a scoop.

Meanwhile, my son-in-law and youngest son were making spider eye balls.

We cut off the top of the dots and stuck little spider sprinkles on top for the pupils.

(Sorry for the quality, little boy hands moving in and out of the picture can make it hard to get a clear one.)

Afterwards, you let them set in the fridge until they’re almost set (or if you’re impatient, you can do the speed set and place these in at about 20 minutes.

I decorated the tops with the eye balls and other sprinkles.

This was the ending result.
