I decided I would make a "Halloween" themed lunch for the kids and dad..lol
Mya wanted to be a pretty vampire and Brayden went as Woody from Toy Story
We went to Williamsburg with some friends and walked a neighborhood up there, I guess the walk really made Mya hungry..
She just couldnt get enough of me :)

Mya's Drive-In Movie Sleepover
Mya loves sleepovers! She has been begging me to let Kylee and Alicyn come over for a sleepover so I placed it on my calendar.. and here we are.
Mya wanted Pizza for dinner and a drive in movie night with something scary! Well.. since we can't really do Friday the 13th or Freddy just yet.. I picked Adams Family. She has seen Casper, and Beetlejuice and a few other movies. But I figured that we would be safe w/ Adam Family with all kids.
Here is one of the cars :) I think they came out great! I used a card board box, I drew a "grill" on the front used aluminum foil for headlights and black plates for tires (on the side) The Cubbys are made out of shoe boxes and a slit cut in th corner for the drink to stay in. I used Large Binder Clips to hold the show box on the side. It worked - no spills :)
I added a small little touch to the front to say
It's that time of year again, where the weather starts acting crazy, we all get the sniffles and the leaves on the tree's look there best :)
School started and I feel like I have been neglecting my blog duties and uploading pics, so please bare with me if I go MIA :) Between Mya's school, soccer,birthday parties every weekend, my dad visiting and Scentsy I have been busy. Last week I had to help a dear friend and watched her daycare children because she needed surgery after fracturing her ankle in I believe 3 spots. She ended up with 7 pins and a metal plate! Craziness.
Last weekend we were driving home from a birthday party and I noticed a church that had a pumpkin patch, so we stopped and gathered our pumpkins. My favorite was the dark green one :)
I figured this year we would do something different instead of carving them... I let the kids decorate there pumpkin like you do Mr. Potato Head...

Rain Rain Go Away........
it's been raining since Sunday and the forecast is saying we will have rain all week! Where was all this rain in the summer,when our grass and flowers were dying! Ok my rants done...
It's Tuesday and I totally forgot to post my Muffin Tin Monday picture. It's nothing spectacular just lunch...haha I was not in the mood yesterday to do anything fun - as far as lunches went. I had errands to run all day and getting 2 toddlers in/ out of a car 7 times... ehh! That's enough to make you want to take a Nap.
So lunch time came.. and this was what the kids had
- Apple Slices
- Cracker Sticks & Cheese
- Ham, Turkey and Cheese Pinewheels
Yesterday I was busy catching up on laundry, promoting my Business Scentsy and like I said earlier running a million errands, did I mention in the rain! I also made a sign yesterday to display at my Scentsy Shows.. and My dad is suppose to be making me a display so I can actually plug in a plug-in warmer so, you can see it when I have vendor shows :) He was suppose to come down last week for the Neptune Festival but I guess with old age he wrote the wrong dates down, and now as far as I know he will be visiting next week!
Backing up ...some more..
This past weekend was my 5th wedding anniversary. So weird to say that out loud, because we have been together for so much longer. We just went out to dinner as a family, and I got to get my sushi fix .. YUM!
Mya started Soccer back up and her 1st game was this past Saturday... She did great she blocked two balls as goalie :) YAY Mya!

I think my son is obsessed w/ the fact the he can eat eye balls!
He asked for LOTS of eye balls today.. so that's what I gave him..
I was trying to think outside of the box... I don't really have a theme per-say...
But this is lunch:
Tuna Fish Sandwich
Midget Pickles = 4 Planktons (by spongebob.. thats what Brayden said they looked liked)
Caterpillar= Grapes ( his call on that)
Jelly Fish= Applesauce...
Wednesday we went to our yearly Ice show, and this year Disney featured Toy Story 3. Which was perfect since last year it was all about princesses and this year Brayden got to have Buzz :)
Last year Mya dressed up as Princess Belle when we went so I thought it would be tradition to dress up again..So, Brayden Dressed up as Buzz and Mya dressed up as Jessie. We already had a Buzz costume so now I needed to find a Jessie one. Well, the halloween ones I really didn't like. They looked so cheap. So I asked a friend if she would make her the outfit if I got the materials..
|This is Jessie from Toy Story|
I think it turned out pretty good. The only thing I noticed later about the chaps is that you couldn't actually see jeans in the front... but that's ok.. It was still darling and she received so many compliments!! You can check out Daffe Designs - she makes a ton of stuff!
Add'l pictures from our night:
We had a good time! The whole show stayed on point with the movie which was pretty neat, so I am sure the kids were following it pretty well. The next morning Brayden begged to go back... I loved that he loved it so much!

It's Monday again... and that means it's
and this weeks theme is SHAPES
I think this turned out cute w. the letters.. I found these amazing cookies at Trader Joes.. They are once again Super Yummy!
So, Saturday Mya started "tball" we are not excited at all about the division nor the coach. She's not even suppose to be in tball.. we signed her up for her age group but because there were not enough players tose kids were sent to tball.. yes without asking us if that's ok. We would much rather be back at Soccer.. That's a lesson learned.
Saturday I had my first Scentsy show.. I think it went very well. For those of you following me and you don't know what Scentsy is.. It's amazing!

I have been wanting one of these Slider Stations for a while- As seen on TV :)
, but personally didn't want to spend $20.
About a month ago I was in Five Below and they had them!! I was super stoked.. they were $5!!
The other night we were in the mood for burgers so I made sliders!!
|Add the meat....|
|Cover for about 3 minutes on med heat|
|And Viola! This is Mikes Plate (hubbys)|
|And the kid's plates|
It was delicious.. just as if it came off the grill! I seasoned the meat and added flavor.. just as you would do any homeade burger.. and it still came out perfect!
Awesome for Bento Meals!
