Happy Halloween

source Graphic Fairy

 Will you be trick or treating in your neighborhood?  The girls are excited to visit one house in particular ~ 'the Boo Man's house'.  Every year he dresses up and pretends to be a statue and then when the unsuspecting little ones come up to the door he jumps out at them ~ you can hear screams down the street and then hysterical giggling.  I love how there are still people out there that will trick you then give you treats ~ makes lovely memories for my little ones ;)

We hope everyone has a safe and spooky night tonight!

My First Zucchini :)

Meet my zucchini plant...

She grew to be ginormous, look at the size of those leaves!

Meet our First zucchini that finally made an appearance in October... if we did not find it the other day I wonder how big it could have gotten?

Meet the Yummy Chocolate Zucchini bread made from our first zucchini.  The sucker was so big we had chocolate bread and a stir fry dinner out of that ONE squash ;)

 Meet the happy little Munchkins with fresh from the oven bread.

 Now rush over to BS' in the Kithchen to get this very easy and nummy recipe and make a batch for your lovelies ;)

Sunday Citar

“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming"
~ Goethe

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.  Don't be trapped by dogma ~ which is living with the results of other people's thinking.  Don't let the noise of others opinion drown out your own inner voice.  And most important have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.  They somehow already know what you truly want to become.  
Everything else is secondary.

Quick Snack ~ Marshmallow Sundae

A surprise snack is something that the Munchkins look forward to each day after school.   Now this snack is not something that you guys have probably not tried, seen, or thought about making.  I say make it again!  The Munchkins were so happy with this snack and their enormous smiles and yummy noises were just what I needed that day as well :)

You will need your favorite chocolate chips, I used dark chocolate.
 Large marshmallows and some fun sprinkles.

 Melt chocolate, dip fluffy marshmallows, and then sprinkle.
  {don't they look like little ice cream sundaes?!?!}

Place into fridge then walk to get kiddos.

When you get home present those little lovelies and watch the smiles brighten the room :)
