|Her mom and I have been a little concerned. She is a very tiny girl. Not even 5 foot and we don't know how much more she can stretch!|
|Here she is last Sept. with her sister Lexi. Aren't they darling?|

|My husband loves to cook and he got one of my cookbooks out and we found some recipes we want to try this week.|
|We started out with theses chicken pot pies.|
|Very easy to make.|
|They turned out very yummy!|
|This recipe would be great for left overs.|

It wasn't until I put this into a to go container that I thought about taking a picture and sharing the recipe on our blog. I was about to leave for a get together that I had brought this to before and was asked to make it again. It's fast, easy, and really good. Everyone wanted the recipe.
Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Dip
16 oz. cream cheese- softened
1c. butter- softened
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
4T. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. semi-sweet mini-chocolate chips
1 1/2c. finely chopped pecans (optional)
Beat cream cheese, butter, add sugars and vanilla. Stir in chips and nuts. Chill 2 hrs. Can also be shaped into a ball and rolled in nuts.
I skip the nuts because my kids don't care for them. Enjoy.

|If you haven't see these candles I am telling you that you will LOVE them.|
|They are great if you love the glow of a candle but are afraid of lighting them with children or pets around.|
|These are not "real" candles but they look just like them.|
|You don't have to worry about your children getting burnt or your pet starting a fire.|
|They look and glow just like a real candle.|

|I decided to add some vinyl decals to this bucket I got at Hobby Lobby last year. I thought it would be perfect for our Halloween treats.|
|I have all of my supplies ready. If you love vinyl decals but are afraid to put them on your wall because you don't think you can do it, start out with something simple like this project. So easy. You can even get your children involved. Believe me these decals can become addicting.|
|I made some decals last night and cut each one up to see which ones looked the best on my bucket.|
|I knew I wanted Happy Halloween so I started with it first.|
|Let me introduce you to Matilda Louise. She decided to take my vinyl 101 class!|
|I cut the spider from it's web and add it on top. Too cute!|
|I kept the back a little plain and thought the witch's hat would do the trick.|
|All my treats are ready to go...now where are those trick or treaters? |
We are joining Shabby Nest
and Just a Girl
today for Show and Share day! Go check it out.

|My dining room isn't exactly the way that I want it. I painted it a few months ago and am still working on it.|
I put my metal pumpkin on my ladder back chair for now. I plan on putting it out on my front porch. I put a flame less candle that has a remote control inside so I won't have to go outside every night to turn it off.
I put these shelves up but I'm just not happy with them. Every time I mention I'd like to take them down, Fern says to leave them. I know I will have holes to repair once I do take them down. I think wider shelves would have been better.
I put a few fall things in the hutch.
Fern bought me the ceramic pumpkins from Kirlin's a few years ago. I keep them out even when it isn't fall. I love them.
