Just Can't Wait


I am having a hard time waiting until Thanksgiving. I want to put up Christmas Decorations right now. I want to listen to Christmas Music all the time. I love the colors red and green... and Christmas lights, the joy and kindness everyone seems to have this time of year. I am excited to start family traditions and put up a Christmas Tree (even though it wont be that glamorous I still am excited) and watch Christmas movies. I am not sure if it is because we don't have any Thanksgiving decorations or if this our first Christmas with Carter in our own place. I might be a rebel and just do it before Thanksgiving. I just can't wait.

Pumpkin Goodness

My next door neighbor told me how to make these extremely low fat cookies and now I am going to share the recipe.


Pumpkin Spice Cookies
1 15oz can of pumpkin
1 box of spice cake
1 bag of chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Mix the cake mix and the pumpkin until creamy. Add the chocolate chips. Drop teaspoon size onto cookie sheet (I always grease my cookie sheets) and bake for 10-12 minutes.


That is it. No egg. No oil. Which makes them low fat, the only fat is a little in the cake mix and the chocolate chips.

Fun in the Snow

Ooops!! "I can't see"Carter's first time playing in the snow. He mainly just walked around in it. I was not dressed to play in the snow, so he really did not know what to do. But he still liked it. Next time we will build a snowman, he really likes the song, "Once I was a snowman"
The snow cover is from one day of snowing. It will pretty much be here until May. Gotta make the best of it. And like living in Seattle rain, just cause it is snowing doesn't mean we have to be cooped inside everyday.

Crazy Kid

Carter's new hat. We went swimming last week and now he loves his swim diapers.Silly face. His personality is so fun and we experience new likes everyday.
Carter is OBSESSED with cars. Every time we go outside he says "caaa", whenever there is a car. He loves the movie Cars, toy cars, race cars, big cars (trucks), puzzles with cars, books with cars, anything. We went to the Mackert's house and he played with their cars. Now all he can say is "Lori caaa". (Ya, Lori was the first name he learned to say, and she loves it).

The other night Dave introduced the race car game on the computer to him. He gets so excited when dad comes home and shows him the race car game, he stops everything he is doing.

Halloween Festivities

We had a great Halloween. Surprisingly Carter loved his bear costume.He did a cake walk and won a cup cake. He made a mess all over the church building. And stupid me did not notice until it was too late.
Here he is fishing.
This time around I was the mom. Trick or treating from a mom's perspective is SO MUCH BETTER than trick or treating myself. Carter loved it: knocking on doors, saying "treat" and getting to pick the candy. Now I am ready to throw out the candy because I am sick of eating it.
