Happy Halloween!

Hope everyone had a safe and Happy Halloween. The kids had fun and all three of them are worn out from walking. I stayed nice and warm at home on candy duty :)

The Monster Mash

Took the kids to a Halloween party last weekend. Mady will be a flower fairy and Matt is Luigi. We also finally got around to carving our pumpkin. Matt has always enjoyed the whole cleaning of the pumpkin and Mady on the other was terrified of the pumpkin guts. Every picture I got was of her running and crying from the pumpkin. She did enjoy the finish product.

Falling for Fall

I absolutely love fall and right now I am loving all things pumpkin. It can be a latte,muffin,dip,pie or as decoration I love it all.

After he beat his game.

My yummy iced pumpkin latte from Dunkin. Matt was sweet to share his doughnut w/ sister.

The top pumpkin was purchased at Hobby Lobby and the bottom from Homegoods.

Would you believe I purchased this from Wal-Mart?

Organizing October

So, for some reason this month is dragging but I also have been organizing, rearranging and cleaning like a mad woman. I usually have a clean house but this month I have found myself cleaning the very top of my kitchen cabinets (a place no one will EVER look but still it kills me to know its nasty greasy up there). I have gone through our Halloween/Thanksgiving bins and have organized them way better than I ever have had them thanks to my labler. The front room in our house which was shown to us as a "dining room" is now rearranged for the fourth time since we've moved in Oct. '08. I actually like the way it is and think it will stay that way for a good while. Rooms that still need to be fixed:
Den: we just need some more pictures to hang the walls are a bit bare
Mady's room: ???? I have no idea how to rearrange it. I need help.
Master: I like the set up and I just wanted to add some stuff to the walls and new sheets (but that will have to wait)
Master closet: I know EXACTLY what I want but I'll have to wait first or do a little at a time.
Matt's room: His is perfect. Everything is in it's right place and we have a space open for his future desk. Now if he could just keep it clean...

We are all still sick. DH has caught the last of our cold and Mady and Matt just have a cough. I on the other hand am healthy as an ox but know by this time next week I'll be the sick one again.
