The other night Justin and I drove separate cars to a family party and the kids split between us on the way home with Madisen riding with Justin. I pulled into the garage right after Justin pulled up and Madisen got of the car. I always pull in and put the car in reverse to use the backup camera to make sure I'm all the way in and this is what showed up on my backup screen. It was so funny I couldn't stop laughing.

I made snickerdoodle cupcakes with a carmel buttercream frosting yesterday and posted about it on facebook. I had several people ask me for the recipe and since I don't want to post the recipe on my blog and get in trouble for calling something mine that isn't I've posted the website that the recipe's came form instead. They were really good and I hope you all like them too.

Craft night with the kids

I only have pictures of the finished project not the process since my hands were covered in paint. After school we went to Hobby Lobby to get supplies to make our halloween luminaries that my sister said were so fun and easy that even I couldn't screw them up. I invited a friend nd her little boy to come make one too. The kids had a blast playing and as you can see they did theirs without any intervention from me, the total control freak! Tanner made the orange pumpkin and the non-striped ghost. Madisen's are the striped ghost and she painted a little of the green goblin and quickly got distracted. I, saved/finished the green goblin and saved/finished the purple goblin as well. The pictures suck because my camera is in the car which Justin is driving tonight.

Tanner...when did you grow up?

Tanner...where do I start? He is the light of my life and cute to boot. He started 4th grade this year and thinks he is so cool because he gets to play on the bigger playground now. His favorite thing at school is P.E. and his least favorite is art. He turned 9 a few weeks ago and we took him and some friends to Pole Position Raceway to celebrate. (actually we felt like crap parents because we were in Puerto Rico for his actual birthday so we bought his love and affection with a super awesome birthday party prior to going.) It was a blast the kids were so cute. I have never seen them so serious in my life. They drove with white knuckles clutching tight to the wheels and straight faces and exploded with excitement as they exited the course. Lastly for Tanner he is playing flag football this season instead for soccer. He seems to really like it. He plays offense and is actually pretty good. Being fast on his feet and little seems to be working to his advantage.
