Two of My New Favorite Things

1) Designing and Making my kids Halloween CoStUmEs!

2) Spaghetti and Meatball Cupcakes

One of the most exciting things to me about becoming a parent was the reality of making my kids' Halloween costumes! My mom always made mine and my brothers, until we were big enough to assemble our own, or stop Trick or Treating (WHAT? Um yeah, didn't happen at my house...I stopped Trick or Treating because I got married and not before that). I enjoy sewing and Halloween costumes has always been something for me to look forward to. This year my kids are big enough and I decided (because they are not yet big enough to have opinions on costumes, I can dictate) that they would be a Pirate Cap'n and his Scallywag!
Check it out, they turned out AwEsOmE and I am so proud!

In keeping with our pirate festivities Brendan designed our Pumpkin!

A friend of mine bakes cakes and cupcakes for fun and to share. She's ridiculously talented at this and I don't know where she gets her ideas, but they rock! We often sample her yummy goodness of a talent at our bookclub (its a medical student wives group, some are students some the wives of students, we get together exploring Christian literature and making efforts to become better Christian wives--this bookclub is actually another one of my favorite things). Her Spaghetti and Meatball cupcakes are my absolute favorite! They are yummy but they taste ALL the better because they are so StInKiN' CUTE!!

Yep, it's a cupcake!
That's frosting with a chocolatey ball covered with strawberry sauce! AmAzInG! She loves me and made them especially for me for our Fall Party this weekend! I'm so Happy!
