Christmas cookies

Better late than never.
We had a blast making cookies.
I cranked up the Christmas tunes.
Reagan ate the cookie sprinkles.
We made wonderful memories.

There may be an overload of pictures

Reagan eating sprinkles.

Reagan and Mommy sporting our vintage christmas aprons.

I think this is just the cutest picture of us.

The infamous sugar cookie recipe we use every year...since my childhood.

Wow...Reagan was eating sugar in every picture.
I'm a good Mommy!

Today's thrifty find

After picking Jonathan up from school today I decided to stop by the local Goodwill.
I pop in every few days to see whats "new"
I saw lots of goodies but really didn't plan on buying anything...
That is until I saw this beauty!!

He was $4. 
I had to have.
You can see part of the ladle sticking out his bum.

I will be posting pictures of most of my awesome finds from now on.
Hubby and I will be hitting up an 2 Estate sales this weekend.
(He enjoys them as much as I do)
Should be fun.

Also Eclipse is coming out Saturday!
We are really excited since we haven't seen it yet.

Night ya'll

Homemade laundry detergent!

This was so easy and fun to make!
Justin and I made it together.

What you need:
1 cup Borax
1 cup Super Washing Soda
1/2 bar Kirk's Soap

After my guy shredded the soap (which isn't necessary, we chose to do)
Put all ingredients in food processor and mix.
Use 1/4 cup for most large loads.

I think we used 3 bars of soap to fill this.
I'm still looking for a vinyl label!

Pumpkin Hunting!!!

I've got some free time before Reagan gets up from her nap.
That she isn't even taking.
She refuses to take naps these days.
Shes been up in her room for an hour.
Calling for Daddy.
Guess what.......she also called for ME!!!!
She never says Mommy. (well not never but maybe likes once every 3 weeks)
Its not often, not as much as I have to hear her say Daddy. Like 6 million times a day!!
(I am so NOT exaggerating) hehehe
O yeah...back to the topic. haha
We went to Clayton Fear Farm this weekend.
Don't fear we didn't scare the kiddos.
During the day its a place for the kids to have fun, at nights its scary.
We had a lot of fun family time.

My family walking through the corn maze.

 sitting with her daddy on the hayride

walking through the spooky 3d place

Daddy buried her in the corn

Kisses in the hay (I got some too)


I forgot to take a picture of our pumpkins.
But if you look at our pumpkin party you can see all 4 on the table.
I love fall!

Heres a sneak peak at what hubby and I have been working on :

Pumpkin Carving Party

We went to the pumpkin patch on Saturday.
It was soooo much fun.
We did the corn maze, hayride, played in corn, Hubs and I rolled in the hay ;)
We even got to pick our own pumpkins.
(I'll post pics of that later tonight)

 I decided it would be fun if we had a little party.

Cute plates, cups, napkins, tablecloth and candles from Target.

Chalkboard I made with a vintage frame. Found at yard sale.

Yummy punch, recipe at end of post.

I put icing on her nose hehehe

Recipe for Punch:
3 cups 7up
3 cups Hawaiian Punch
scoops of orange sherbert.

I only made a little bit cause it was just the 4 of us.
 You can also use whatever sherbert you like.

We took her to Chuck E. Cheese and she had a blast!
The minute we pulled up she screamed yay!

Reagan loves balloons...she calls them bubbles.

Diggin in to her cake (ignore the spaghetti on her arm) LOL

Playing with the teaset grandma and Papa got her.

Happy Birthday my sweet baby princess.
I love you sooo much and am so greatful that you are in my life.
You are amazing. I could stare at you everyday all day long!
You are my baby pumpkin, my Stinkerbell, Princess among other things. You are hilarious and always making me laugh.
The house would be quiet without you!

Day at the beach

We spent the day at the beach yesterday. The first time in three years since we have lived here. It was chilly but the boys still managed to get in the water.  We had a good time until Reagan got cranky, due to a missed nap.

Big brother always looks after his baby sister.

She got sleepy from running around.

My handsome Jonathan
  I look forward to beginning this new venture.
