Last week we went over to Dallas and Levi's house for a fun and festive playdate! The kids got together and played and Dallas had all of the stuff ready for the moms to create some fun treats for lunch!
We made Mummy Dogs! This was Lilly and Reid's first time ever to eat a hot dog. And...Lilly LOVED them. She has been asking me to make them again. Ha! I am so proud of her because she wasn't exited to try it but she did try it and liked it. I feel like that is a huge step. (:
We also made caramel apples...
and then dipped them in chocolate and various other candies. They were as good as they look!!! I should also tell you it was pretty funny with Dallas, Laura, and I in the kitchen trying to make this from-scratch caramel BUT we did it and it was YUMMY!
Lilly went with the sprinkles and mini chocolate chips for toppings.
Reid went with the Halloween crushed Oreos.
I think Levi had the sprinkles and m&ms...including candy corn m&ms...which are ridiculously good.
Addy went with M&Ms, too.
Sam shared with Addy.
All of the kids (and moms) ate those us with no problem! We even took some by Matt's work so he could have a special treat, too. So thankful for fun times with friends!
And, on a not-so-fun note, last Monday I was cleaning out the van and on may way inside I saw a black spider. It looked dead but I wanted to make sure so I took Reid's boot to move it. It flipped over and I saw the above and about hyperventilated. I ran and grabbed my camera and took a picture because it was bigger than I thought a black widow was smaller. I googled images and sure enough this IS a black widow!!! On our front porch. Thankfully it was already dead and I am choosing (after some time to stop panicking) to view this as God protecting us from danger even when we didn't even know it was there. This has taken some time since my initial reaction was, "Matt it is time to move!" ( :
I snagged Matt up out of the dating pool and we got married 8 1/2 years ago! He is an amazing husband to me and awesome father to our two little ones. We are just a couple of Christian people trying to get closer to God, reflect Him better, and raise our children in His Word and His Way!! We are loving every minute of this busy/fun/blessed life!
This little princess is a mixture of sweet and sassy! She keeps us laughing with practically every word that comes out of her mouth. She can melt your heart with a smile and a giggle and then turn right around and keep you on your toes with some mischeviousness! Her facial expressions give away her every thought and we just couldn't love her more (but somehow tomorrow we will)!
This is our boy with the magic smile! He is a perfect mixture of sweet and snugglie and ALL boy. He is laid-back like his Daddy and full of energy like his sister. He is happy climbing and dancing or curled up reading a book with Mommy. He is always learning some new trick and we can't wait to see what he is going to do and say next!
My handsome man and I have been married for 7 years. We are the extremely blessed parents of Lilly and Reid. This blog documents our lives, allows the grandparents and other family to see regular pictures of the little cuties, and helps friends and family stay in the know about us! Overall, we are simply a God-loving family of four!
