I have been so far behind reading blogs that I just spent the last half an hour trying to catch up, and of course didn't get through them all. Some people are just so talented. Wish I had a little of that. However, I did do a couple of my pintrests this week. Mostly cooking ones (because that is what I am good at), but I did do one other one I will show you too.

Did you know you could make pumpkin muffins with 2 ingrediants??!!! 
 Easy, cheap, and Yummy!

 The girls like to stir first, then I finish them up on the kitchen aid.
 I love that they both LOVE cooking so far.
(I know they don't look happy, but they did like them. They just think their mom is a little nuts.)
And if you want to dress them up just a little or make them for dessert add a cream cheese frosting or springle with powdered sugar.

Our friends Tyler and Ellie came over to make Halloween Houses.

Good job Livy!
 Emelyn of course just ate crackers, frosting, and candy. We finally had to cut her off.

 Jenna helping Tyler fix his house. It kept caving in. Next time we'll try stiffer frosting.

Pintrest Project

A weekly menu dry erase board. I always write out our menu on a tiny piece of paper, post it on the refridgerator, and then make my grocery list according to the menu. My sister-in-law pinned this on pintrest, and then I repinned it. The gal that first did it got scrapbook paper and cut out letters from a machine. I made it on my Creative Memories Scrapbooking program and then printed it off. I got the frame at Micheals for $4.99. This ended up being about a $6 project. After you put the paper in the frame, you use a dry erase marker to write out your menu each week. I still need to get a picture frame stand to hold it up. I don't have wallspace in my kitchen to hang it. Olivia keeps wanting to write on it. So I think I need to get her a frame and put a cute piece of scrapbook paper in it and she could have her very own little dry erase board.

The other thing I found on pintrest was this amazing fall dessert.
Carmel Apple Cheesecake Bars.
They were super easy, but a lot of steps. Check out my pintrest for the recipe. It is well worth the effort.
