5 Things around Here

Although it's was a shorter week it was jam packed around here. Here's a peek at what was going on around here:

These right here the most EASIEST "Fallish" cupcakes. Ingredients: Pumpkin Puree(1 can), Chocolate chips (1/2 cup) and White cake mix. Put them all together in a bowl mix well and bake in a pre-heated oven of 350 for 15-20 minutes. Your welcome. SO Yum!!

 Being Isy with the grace of God has been basically our super preemie I thought it only fit that this year she be Wonder baby for Halloween.

My Littles and I got crafty and painted a few pumpkins that I picked up at Micheal's Craft store. It was so much fun and it got us talking about the fun crafts that we will be doing soon for  Thanksgiving and Christmas.

This right here is everything. My oldest baby girl reading to my youngest baby girl. Mama melt right there.

My oldest- Ramzees showing off his new shirt he got from my brother... Sure I like the shirt (yes he was named after a pharaoh) but hmm did you guys see his blackboard.... #myjobisgoingwellthankyouverymuch

So that's been our week in a nutshell. What about you? What have you been up to?

Fall Festivals

Picking up some yummy apples and family time is something we love about Fall. Having fun crossing our Fall bucket list. This weekend we hope to cross going to a Corn Maze off that list.

Of course if at the festival getting your face painted is a must along with playing w/the leaves.

October 15- Remembrance Day

On October 15, at 7:00 pm in all time zones, families around the United States will light candles in memory all of the precious babies who have been lost during pregnancy or in infancy.  Too many families grieve in silence, sometimes never coming to terms with their loss.
If you or someone you know has suffered a miscarriage, stillbirth or infant loss due to SIDS/SUID, prematurity or other cause, we hope you will join us in this national tribute to create awareness of these tragic infant deaths and provide support to those that are suffering

I will light a candle for my little girl Anjelique who passed to SIDS at the age of 2 1/2 months  8 years ago. Not a day goes by she isn't loved or spoken of. Over the years I have tried to spread the word on SIDS as it effected our family in hopes that it will be able to bring awareness.
Throughout our journey I have been blessed to meet some of the most amazing and wonderful woman who are walking the same path. Each day I feel that more blessed.
I hope you will join us and light a candle so we may light up the night in memory of all our sweet little ones who were gone too soon.

Oh Great Pumpkin. Wonderful Traditons

Watching this with my Littles has become a wonderful tradition. I remember being little and while other kids were waiting on a scary movie to come on during the "Halloween" week I was looking for Charlie and the Gang.

 I love Charlie Brown and being able to share the love of what he means with my kids makes it that much more special.
Hearing them giggle and cheer on Linus no matter how many times we have watched it over the years is the best.  Priceless memories.

This year we shall have one more watching. Last year Isy was super tiny. I know she still wouldn't get who these awesome characters are is but I know she will giggle right along w/her siblings when they do...and I can't wait to hear that beautiful sound.

FYI: They will be playing It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown on Wednesday on ABC at 8:30 EST

Do you have any traditions you share with your kids that you did when you were little?

3 Kid Movies to See This October

I don't know about you but every other commercial my kids scream out OH I want to see that! So I thought I'd share what's in store for my kids (or so I hope!)

1- The Boxtrolls

Mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs,devise a daring plan to save Eggs' family from the town villain.

2. Book of Life

This is the journey of Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart. Before choosing which path to follow, he embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds where he must face his greatest fears. Rich with a fresh take on pop music favorites, this film encourages us to celebrate the past while looking forward to the future

3. Alexander and the Terrible No good Day

  1. Follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life-a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he's not alone when his brother, sister, mom and dad all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn't had one.

Can't wait to watch these movies with my Littles. Next Month is also a good movie month.I personally can't wait for Hunger Games! 

What about you are going to plans to go to the movies anytime soon?

11 weeks Left Time to start the Lists

I believe I caused this to come early as I was discussing how it's hard to believe there are only 11 weeks to Christmas. Yes I'll let you digest that one.

That just prompted my 7 and 11 year old to say WHAT we have to start working on our lists. I figured I shared so you guys can start your search as to what might also be on your kids list to come too!

My Gabi's (7 years old) List included :

Monster High Freaky Fusion Catacombs Playset

My girl has more Monster High Dolls then I can count so I guess I had to see this coming. Every gal needs their dream home right?!

Frozen Musical Magic Set

Another expected to be on her list as I have lost count the times we have watched or sang the soundtrack to Frozen. These dolls sing and light up when they hold hands. Hey at least I can take a break from singing along right?

Barbie Dreamhouse Party for Nintendo 3D

This game will let her imagine run as she basically will build a virtual world for Barbie and her friends. I bet I will join in and help her with some decorating as these games are really fun I must admit.

My Isaac's  (11 year old) List :

Nerf Lazer Phoenix LTX Tagger -2 pack

When I saw this on his list my jaw hit the floor because I bet there might be another Nerf war going in this house you see my Hubby has one and since these comes with two Nerf that means my two boys and Hubby will be running around the house after each other. Yeah..Good Times.

Lazer Pitch Baseball Pitching Machine

If you visit my blog enough you know we are a baseball family and this is something that I actually can see both boys using. Before we know it, it will be time to get on that field!

iHome iDL46GC Lighting Dock Dual Charging FM Stereo Clock Radio

Isaac received an Ipad mini and this is something I was thinking about as it will actually be not only a speaker for him but an alarm clock so it can help me be a backup for when I go "try" to get them up in the AM. Hey a little music to get you going in the AM is a good thing!

So this is a peek at what's on two of my kids lists. I'll be sharing another list on what my might be on my 16 year olds as well as my Hubby's and my wish lists soon.

Hey Santa are you listening?

Have you started to make lists or even started shopping yet for the Holidays?

What are your Fall TV Must Watch

I don't know about you but even though Summer was BEYOND awesome and went by WAY too quick I couldn't wait for it to hit September to bring back my favorites for Fall TV.

For me once 8 pm comes about and the baby is down and my other kids are settling for the night it's time for mama to get her unwind time.

My guilty pleasure is my TV Shows I've grown to love. Here are some of them.

              New Girl

 After a bad break-up, Jess, an offbeat young woman, moves into an apartment loft with three single men. Although they find her behavior very unusual, the men support her - most of the time

What is NOT to love about this show?!! I have to laugh because some of the things Jess does I have seen myself do when I was in my 20's! hmm Did you guys catch the latest episode. Oh my gosh I do not even know HOW I didn't wake up my Hubby & the baby with how much I was laughing.

The Mindy's Project

A young Ob/Gyn doctor balances her personal and professional life, surrounded by quirky co-workers in a small office

These are my two shows that I watch to giggle my bum off off. Warning these shows aren't for young eyes so that's why I watch these shows after the kids are down for the night.

Both shows are on Tuesday evenings on the FOX network at 9 EST & 9:30 EST

Another show that is growing me that just started this season is Forever 

A 200-year-old man works in the New York City Morgue trying to find a key to unlock the curse of his immortality.

I think I am really am liking this show because it has a semi House vibe with mystery. Finding out who the main charterer really is and especially now that they introduced a secret person who we have yet to really meet.

Next comes up I think my most FAVORITE Show for the Fall which is a rollercoaster from the start of an episode till the end and then has you screaming . "Is it Next Thursday yet!?!"

This is on Tuesday's on ABC Network at 10 EST


A former White House Communications Director starts her own crisis management firm only to realize her clients are not the only ones with secrets

I can not think of a show more perfectly named. Oh it's like doing a cardio workout out watching this show each week. If you watch this show tell me I'm not the only one talking to the characters on the TV. After the show is done I'm STILL talking to them!

Another added to my list that started this season that I'm still trying to really give it my all is

How to Get Away With Murder

A group of ambitious law students and their brilliant criminal defense professor become involved in a twisted murder plot that promises to change the course of their lives

This show has me intrigued me from the first episode and has me at the edge of the seat trying to figure out WHAT the heck is really going on. Can't wait to see the next episode and see what they reveal this time.

These two shows are on the ABC Network on Thursdays starting at 9 PM EST & 10 PM EST

Well those are my shows that I don't miss there are others I do watch but those I just catch up on Hulu whenever I can!

What about you? What are on your Must watch TV list?
