Happy Halloween!!

So today is gonna be fun and hectic, lol. But I guess everything is hectic when you have to do it with 4 kids either hanging on you, running around, crying or pooping all at once, lol. We'll be going trick-or-treating just for a little while then we'll be having a Halloween party right here in the comfort of our home. I've got the costumes done and I'm hoping I'll be able to get a few decent pics of them together. I'll post some pics tomorrow. For now, I leave you with a layout with a pic from last year.

Hope everyone has an awesome day! Stay safe!

Lovin' her Baby Brother

Elyse is a bit obsessed with Jake.
She force feeds him.
She pats him a lil' too hard.
She slobbers him with kisses.
She almost made him choke by shoving a choc. chip cookie in his mouth.
She pushes him really hard in the swing.
She loves him with all her heart.

Sweets for my sweeties

So, I went to my 6 week postpartum check-up and I've gained 5 pounds in 2 weeks.'s depressing. I bake like crazy and make all sorts of sweets during the holidays...and of course, I eat them too. I could be more disciplined and blah blah blah...but I don't want to. Maybe once I get a new treadmill, I'll start the whole "eating healthy" thing, lol. Right now, I'm getting a routine going and barely easing into this new life of 4 babies. The last thing I want to be right now is starving and cranky. Here's a few goodies I've been stuffing my face with:

And here's some pics of the munchkins for Joyce, lol. (Love ya girlie!)

Sweet Treats

I'm taking this class by Trish Turay over at Get it Scrapped and I LOVE it!! If you're planning on making goodies for the holidays...this is THE class to sign up for. You won't regret it, trust me. There's lots of really cute ideas! This one is from the class. Simple and sweet. The recipe calls for Halloween oreos but our grocery store was out, so I used the peanut butter ones. The kids loved them! Today, I'm making Monster Munch...yummy!

Halloween to-do

My list is super long. I still need to finish making the kids Halloween costumes. I have 2 down, 2 more to go. Since Mars is going to work on Halloween; and I don't wanna have the kids outside for too long trick-or-treating (4 kids under 5...umm...I don't think so.)....I decided to have a Halloween party! I've never had one before , and I'm kinda excited. I need to start getting some decor going. Nothing too scary though, since it's a kids' party. I have to get this, 'cause it's PERFECT!!! I've got the invitations done, took me about 10 min, lol. And well, since my birth announcements never got done, lol, I decided to kill 2 birds with 1 stone and combine it with my Halloween cards. Anyway, I got a bajillion things to do, so I better get to it. Talk to you later. Peace.
