I also wanted to take a photo of all the kids together, which I have attempted many times, but have failed. three kids all photo ready anytime, on the count of cheese, nope just not happening. I took this photo, best one in a long time, only took me half hour to get it, but it's done, and now I can scratch walmart photo studio off my list, yeah for me.
Yeah, I'm not all into the matching outfits and the special photo day, i like them simple, real, and in ordinary settings. and to me, that's priceless.

i know they aren't really pretty, but no one complained cause all 75 were gone! I only got one! These are pretty easy to make, except for my handicap with the white chocolate, and they are even better to eat. cream cheese, Oreo's, and chocolate, that's it.
Also, while I was there i got to squeeze in to do a fall flower arrangement, thanks to Janelle. I have never really made an arrangement this big, so it took me a while, but it was fun, and I think it looks o.k.
The kids are excited for Halloween, and I'm sure we'll be making our traditional Halloween sugar cookies. No wonder October through January we pack on the pounds, every thing's about eating! Oh well, we'll just make another ridiculous new year's resolution to not do it again. Cheers.

I first gave her a beater with frosting so she would know what was coming, she's really funny about trying something new, especially when i keep saying " go on, taste it" she poked for a few minutes and thenyup, dove right in. don't know why she wouldn't pick it up, didn't want to get her hands dirty I guess. After she got a real taste of what I was pushing her to eat, she was quite surprised than I would give her such a delicatessen, and quite proud of her self too.Priceless.
And well, for my addition to the evening, I made dinner. and cleaned up the mess, and bathed the girl with all the frosting on her face. I was trying to think of something fallish to make, so I made haystacks, they are yummy!
And yes, I ate that whole thing. Thanks to aunt Mary I now have my first set of semi-china, so I won't have to sport my plastics as much. Well, i think I am about all falled out, and we still have the rest of the month and the next. Hopefully it cools down some so it really feels like fall, otherwise I think the pool needs to re-open.
