#SpookySnacks for Halloween: Fanta Floats and OREO Straws at /
Hi guys!  It's October again . . . FINALLY!  As an October baby, I have always thought this was the best month of the year.  Cooler weather {even here in Arizona} ... leaves changing ... HALLOWEEN!!  October has it all. 

I used to obsess over my kids' costumes and spend the entire month making sure they looked perfect for trick-or-treating.  Now that they're all teenagers, they pretty much take care of their own costumes and they don't really go trick-or-treating, but we still have a blast on Halloween.  We have a big Halloween-themed dinner and fun activities for the kids and their friends while we pass out candy.  This year we'll be serving DELICIOUS Orange Fanta Floats with OREO Straws while the kids decorate their own OREOS.

Chalk Art Pumpkin Pie Recipe and {Free} Printable Version

Pumpkin Pie Chalk Art Printable at /
Hi guys!  I loved my grateful kitchen chalkboard so much that we kept it for a really long time -- like almost a year. Yikes!  I've let a few things slide since I started working full time. I decided it was high-time to create something new.  But, since I know how busy the next several months are going to be -- and I'm realistic about my energy level --  I wanted a design that would take us right through to Christmas.  I've been admiring chalk art recipes on Pinterest for a while and wanted to try my hand at creating one of my own.  Since fall is "Pumpkin Everything" season . . . Voila!  This Chalk Art Pumpkin Pie Recipe was born!

Forgive the imperfections -- I pretty much just free-handed it on the chalkboard after generally sketching it out on graph paper.  It was a little trickier than I had imagined it would be fitting all the words in, but I love the end result! Since I know many of you don't have chalk boards this size, or don't think you can do chalk art {you are wrong!}, I created a couple of printable versions as well.
