Free Printable - Happy Halloween!

I can't believe Halloween is almost here!  Where did this month go?  Brody had a parade at school today and I got to see him and the rest of his classmates all dressed up in their costumes, they looked so sweet!  It is moments like these that remind me why I love Halloween so much.  Plus there are lots of sweet treats involved, which is an extra bonus!  I am planning to make lots of goodies for my family on Halloween like these cupcakes with my cupcake toppers!

In honor of Halloween and all things sweet, I want to share with you my Halloween printable Party Punch as seen above turned into cupcake toppers.  

You can use them to create lots of other fun items like favor tags, napkin rings, jar decorations, wine charms, and more!  To get your own FREE printable PDF file, DOWNLOAD HERE 

If you haven't already done so, make sure you subscribe to my blog (there is link on the upper right side of the page that says "SUBSCRIBE VIA EMAIL" or just click HERE) so you are in the loop for any future free printables and giveaways!  I hope all of you have a fun and safe Halloween!  I will make sure to post lots of pictures next week!

Sweet Arielle

This past weekend, my adorable baby niece Arielle Gabriella, was brought into this world.  I am so excited to get to know this precious little girl as she grows up.  In honor of all of her sweetness, I've posted some Fall and Halloween treats below (click on the treat name to link to their recipe).  Congratulations to Ish and Beatriz for their beautiful baby girl.  And I hope you all enjoy making and eating these yummy treats!

Clockwise from top right:

Eerie Eyeball Cookies: Watch these eyeballs disappear as everyone bites into the yummy malt ball in the middle of the treat.

Libby's Pumpkin Roll: With the moist pumpkin cake wrapped around a cream cheese filling, can there be a better dessert for Fall?

Gummy Mummies:  These mummies are too cute to eat, or are they?

Halloween Whoopie Pies:  Use different colored nonpareils to make these Halloween treats as colorful as you like for any season.

Donuts with Dad

Hard to believe another year went by, and yesterday, I turned another year older!  I had an amazing birthday thanks to my wonderful family (who all celebrated with me this past weekend), and my wonderful husband and kids who made me feel like the luckiest woman alive yesterday.  And thank you to all of my friends who called and sent sweet emails.  I don't know what I did to be this blessed, but I thank God everyday for all He has done!

Not only was yesterday my birthday, but it was a big day for Brody and Chris - it was Donuts with Dad at school!!  Brody was extremely excited for this special event and has been talking about it every day since school started.  I made a special banner for his class.  Check out the pics!

My special banner in Brody's classroom - woohoo!

Brody and Chris - what a cute pair!
