Show and Tell Monday - Halloween Cupcakes

Happy Monday!

I made some Halloween cupcakes last week and just had to share.

They turned out so cute!

Nothing really special about them...I just picked up a box of Pillsbury Halloween Funfetti Cake Mix and the Funfetti Halloween Icing.

I made my cupcakes and iced them.



Added the sprinkles and a spider ring. 


Then I used the cupcake in a cup trick that I pinned on Pinterest

I just put my decorated cupcake in the cup, put it in a little clear bag, and tied it up with some raffia.  Super easy!

And they turned out so cute!


I will definitely be making these cupcakes in a cup again!

Friday Randoms

Yay....It's Friday!!!

This week seemed like it took forever!!

Last Friday Austin had another school dance and he had a great time.  I so wish he would stop growing up. It makes me sad.




We have been working on Austin science project that is due on Monday.  He has to make a 3d model of an atom.   It has not been easy trying to think of a way to make it!  We have a plan and hopefully it works out. 




Last Saturday this little girl wanted to wear her rain boots....okay maybe not but I know if she could talk she would so tell me she wanted to wear them!





I saw this cute hair-do on Pinterest and we had to try it.  It was very cute and look much cuter on Sunday when I put her bow on the other side. 



Aydrie and me finally got a pair of TOMS and I love them! Mine are so comfortable and I wear them all the time!  Now it is time for big brother to get a pair.




Some little boy had a fall and the table won.  Ace got his first black eye this week. He fell and hit the table...poor baby. Maybe next time he will leave that table alone.  This happened at the beginning of the week and as the week has gone on it has gotten more black and blue.






Wednesday we joined Heather and Jared at Don Jose's for Enchiladas.  We haven't been able to go in a couple of weeks so it was time and they were yummy.




Have a great weekend!

Our Weekend in pics

Saturday, we enjoyed the day picking out our pumpkins and fall flowers.

Before we left the house I had to get a pic of these two.

Ace is looking so big these days!



We had fun taking some pics in the fall decor.



{These two had fun walking around.}

{Ace decided he wanted to eat the pumpkin.}








Sunday, we headed to my Mom and Dad's and spent the day with them. My Dad cooked out so we once again had fun spending some time outside.







 


Ace loves riding the four wheeler.

Austin is really careful with him and they barely even move. Ha!

He drives really slow.

This is the second time he has fallen asleep on it. 



Hope you had a great weekend.

iPhone Pics

Does this ever happen to you??

I have over 1500 pics on my phone!  I am a little obsessed with my camera phone. Ha!  It is just so easy to take pics with.

These are some ones I want to post before I clean my pics out.

It’s always easier to find them when they are on my phone then once they are uploaded to my computer...or for me anyways.





Why do little ones love tupperware???  Ace does this at least 3 times a day.

I have pretty much just given up on keeping this cabinet organized.

Most of the time I just throw everything back in the cabinet because I know it will all be on the floor again soon.


  




Ace is loving his new toys he got for his birthday.

And we still have a few more to open.

He is one spoiled little boy!







Aydrie and Ace will play together…sometimes.

There are usually tears shed sooner or later when they are playing together.

I never know which one is going to start crying. 

I am hoping one day they like each other.






We have been experimenting with  “time outs”.

Ace will sit there for a second or two….maybe.

This hurts his feelings more than anything. Ha!

I am hoping we don’t have to do these a lot.







Jayden is such a good cousin!

He is always taking care of Aydrie girl.

We were over at their house for a Ranger’s game a couple of weeks ago and he wanted to help feed Aydrie. 


  




 Just being a sweet girl.






Ace trying to be like his big brother.




 That all for now. ;)

Show and Tell Monday Sofa Table Up-Do

Last Thursday I mentioned I spent the weekend painting....this is one of the pieces I was working on.

When my Grandmother (Baba) past away a couple of years ago I inherited this pretty sofa table.

I have always wanted a sofa table and this one was perfect!

It sat out in storage for a little while and ended up with a couple of water stains but I didn't care...I knew a little paint could fix that.



I hate to admit but this table has been in our house for a while now...water stains and all.

Last weekend I finally got a chance to make it all pretty again.

A couple of coats of paint, some Ralph Lauren Faux Glaze, and some steel wool did the trick.



I sanded it a little, painted it turquoise, let it dry, and then put the glaze on it and wiped the glaze off with the steel wool. 

I love how it turned out.




When we put on the glaze and wiped it off with the steel wool it pulled some of the turquoise paint off.

I wasn't sure if I liked it or not but I soon found myself trying to pull off the turquoise paint in other places too.

{click pic to make it bigger}


I loved how it turned out and I wish I could see it from my couch!


I love that this is the first thing I see when I walk in my house...makes me think of my sweet Grandmother every day. :)

I have a feeling this will not be the only thing I paint turquoise. ;)
