Celebrating 4th of July

We decided to start our 4th off with some delicious lunch at Chili’s since the kids ate for free..  Of course a shot of my Handsome little stud in his shades..

We headed over to Bookman’s to check out some books and to get out of that heat.. You would think with all the books that are available at a “book store”  my darling Handsome would have more than enough options to choose from..  What book does he end up bringing up the Justin Beiber book of course..  We truly have a Belieber in our house and its not my tween..

Then the time came for us to head over to the park and get our little set-up going..  We always have to bring some yummy snacks to munch on while we wait for the sun to set..  We brought along some glow stick toys, played some catch to help the time pass and of course took some photos that were shall we say very spontaneous..

Finally the time arrived for the fireworks to start and they were just gorgeous.. Although it only lasted twenty minutes it was a constant array of bright and bold colors bursting in the sky..  We had an amazing time together and it would have been a perfect holiday if daddy had been able to make it..

Photo Shoot with the kids..

I decided to take the kids out for some photographs and of course it was all windy, dusty and gloomy.  Needless to say we ended up heading out anyways because the kids were excited to take some photos.  In the end I really like how they came out and cant wait to print them out and see how they look.




This is one of my favorites..

Mmm.. Rainbow Cupcakes

I have had the itch to bake lately and fell in love with some rainbow cupcakes I came across so I decided to bite the bullet and make them.  It was slightly time consuming due to all of the colors but we had a blast making them so here are some photos of our lovely baking experience.


Our lovely colors of the rainbow..


Now were on to the process of layering the colors..

You start with purple and blue


green then yellow


orange and top it off with red..


Now you have the completed product and we thought that they came out great, yummy as well. 


Now its on to frosting these bad boys and she did a fine job.


Then they’re off to the sprinkles specialist!!


In the end we ended up with these lovely, oh so cute and super delicious rainbow cupcakes.


By now we have already devoured about half of the batch but were trying to save some for our dinner under the star tomorrow before the fireworks start. 

Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe 4th of July tomorrow.

Take care & be safe..

A very late Christmas Review!!!

Christmas Eve morning is always entertaining watching the kids decide which gift they’re going to open.  After they changed their minds about three or four times they finally made a decision and hurried up stairs.

Just to keep the anticipation going I had them go thru their stockings first.

After they tore through their stockings they eagerly opened up their gifts.

Later on that morning we headed home and planned to spend a lot of time with my family.  We headed down on Friday and had a wonderful time at my Grandparents house surrounded by a lot of family.  We ate a lot of food and made some funny memories that night.  My aunts busted a move while playing the Wii.

The kids enjoyed playing with some jumbo sparklers.


Christmas morning was an early one even though the kids were up till past midnight the night before.  Now from the look on my little man’s face he felt it was a little early as well.

Later that afternoon we headed out to my other Grandmother’s house and I was able to somewhat capture a photograph of her with some of her great grandchildren.
