How to bake with a three year old!

As a tradition we make Halloween Cookies and just make breads at Christmas.
SO... Halloween is just right around the corner and you can just guess what we did today.
How to bake with an almost 3 yr old.
Step 1: Pick the best melt in your mouth sugar cookie recipe EVER! Thanks to a super sweet Ms. Nancy Kelly for mine.

Sugar Cookies
1/2 cup conf. sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup wesson oil
1 stick of butter
1 egg
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp soda
2 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla
Cream butter, oil and sugar.  Add egg and vanilla. Gradually add dry ingredients.  Chill several hours.  Form into small balls and press with small water glass dipped in granulated sugar.  Bake at 375* for 9-10 mins.
Proberbs 16:24
Step 2: Do what the recipe says.  Let "wild man" stir and be excited to make cookies.
Step 3: Instead of us letting it cool and presing it out with a cup. We decided to use our halloween cookie cutters and I let "wild man" stamp some out.
Step 4: Let "wild man" play with it like playdoh.

Step 5: Let him throw half of it on the floor and rake flour and cookie dough off the counter onto you and him.
Step 6: Make him roll the remaining dough that didn't end up on the flour into small balls while he is screaming at you for taking the rest of his cookies and bake them as directed.
Step 7: After cookies are in the oven. Chase him around trying to keep him from putting his cookie dough and flour covered hands all over everything in the house.
Step 8: After being unsuccessful at step 7, hold him down to clean him off and then backtrack throughout the house trying to clean and find everything he touched during the rampage.
Step 9: Pull out your pretty (um.... not really) cookies and sprinkle with yummy halloween colored sprinkles. 
Step 10: Enjoy! And allow "wild man" to eat 4 and feed the dog 3. :)
Yes. I love my Halloween placemats that I made last year!

Mayhem :)

I put him into my bed at 10. Took my history quiz in the other room for 15 mins. Came into my bed room to find THIS.........


Speechless right!
Yes, that is an entire bucket of brand new Victoria Secret Love Spell Body Butter. 
Yes, those are the clean sheets I put on the bed 30 mins before.
Yes, I had just turned on the washer to wash my only other set of sheets.
You bet we slept in sleeping bags after that haha.
But boy does my room and sheets smell delicious still :)
Just a hint of my mayhem!
And I didn't even scream!
Children are a heritage from the Lord,
offspring a reward from him.
PSALM 127:3
This is my reward!

Going to the Zoo, zoo, zoo... How about you, you, you!

After spending almost 5 days without seeing my sweet boy, I decided we needed some mommy-son time. So, yesterday we went to the zoo. He was so excited and he kept saying he wanted to see the fish.  

Im sorry but the FISH.... REALLY!?!? Of all the stinking exhibits and animals at the zoo.  THE FISH?!?!? When we got there we went straight to the fish then over to ride the CAMEL!

I am scared to death of heights and that camel was super tall. Needless to say I was FREAKING OUT! Eason rode that stinking camel with a huge smile on his face he loved every second of the day and I loved spending some quality time with the love of my life :)
They have already started decorating for ZOO BOO and E loved the jack-o-lanterns.

E looking at the koi fish.

He obviously missed me because he has not stopped talking for 2 whole days.

Typical E!
God's beautiful creatures.

Me and E notice how scared I am and how happy that boy is. haha
Loved my mommy-son day!

I just felt like I needed to say....

When I found out I was pregnant, I never knew how much I would be so madly in love with someone like I am in love with my baby boy. The love of a mother and a son is just completely overwhelming. It is so unexplainable how this is and it is exactly how God planned it.

He is my world and I wouldn't change it for anything.
Some times I just watch him and thank the Lord for giving me the greatest gift.

Thank you Lord for my baby boy.

Fun Fall Pictures

I do not know if anyone has ever tried to take pictures of a small child but I must say.... It is not easy.

Today I decided I was going to try for some fall pictures of lil E.  He is turning 3 in just one month and I can't believe how big he is getting.  I knew I needed something..... I was really proud because my pictures didn't turn out too bad. 

Here are a few of my favs. 
mr. serious

really want to blow this up and put it above the fireplace :)

Yes, he was yelling

One of the best.

He depotted our flowers and put it on his head

These are the best... Now I have to find a place to put them which won't be hard in a new house :) ENJOY!

This is probably my favorite month.  Perfect weather, pumpkins, and candy :)

We officially have a house that needs some serious painting. Hopefully I will be able to get to it by this weekend.
I have math, history, and english homework that needs to be done by friday and I just started meal planning. 

This morning I made home-made granola! It's a little bit crumbly but super delicious and all natural!

ALSO,  I stripped the brown out of my hair trying to lighten it because it had gotten too dark. Instead, I know have hair to match the season.  It is about the color of a pumpkin.  IM OFFICIALLY A GINGER! :)  It really isn't too terrible though it is more of a strawberry blonde but I will wait a week and strip it again and use a brass banisher to get some of the orange/red out. Yeah, I color my hair more than I paint my nails.  
anyway, hooray for October!
