November Paper Pumpkin

I am so impressed with Novembers Paper Pumpkin! The little stars and the Merry Christmas saying are so cute. I think this is my favorite month so far. I've made 4 projects already and still have a scrapbook page in the works - this kit really went a long way!

Here is the card that the kit was designed to make:

I also made 2 more cards, using the stamps and elements from the kit:

I used the Envelope punch board to create this little gift box as well:

Thanks for stopping by!

An Afternoon of Sledding

Sunday afternoon we went sledding with some friends. There is a average sized hill very close to our house that is perfect for the boys. The boys and their friends raced down the hill non-stop for over an hour. It was sunny and not very cold out, so the kids had a blast!

Look at those rosy cheeks! After we had hot chocolate by the Christmas tree, the perfect way to warm up!

More Snow

It snowed a fair bit this past weekend! The boys and I went out to shovel the driveway at noon on Saturday and Michael went back out at 5pm. It has snowed since, so we are definitely getting our fair share of snow so far!

Taking a break!

Best After School Snack

According to the boys, these pretzels were the best after school snack ever! 
They were really good. I had to quickly take a picture, because the boys were eating them so fast.

I got the recipe from Pinterest (of course). Here is the link to the recipe:

I followed the recipe exactly as they said. I will definitely be making these again!

First Snow Fall

It snowed quite a bit on Sunday, so on Monday morning, Zack was ready to play outside. He was excited to use his snow block maker and start building a fort.

I don't know how far he got in making his fort, but he sure had fun in the snow!

Halloween is always a busy day and this year was no exception. The boys all wore their costumes to school and then again at night for trick or treating. Zack is a race car driver, Jakob is Superman and Levi is Spiderman.

The weather was pretty good, it was kind of windy, but there wasn't any snow. 

First we went to see 2 cute little ladybugs (one of the ladybugs was camera shy):

Then it was off for a fun night of trick or treating with our friends.

Lastly, a trip to see Oma & Opa and the boys' cousins.

The boys had a fun night and collected A LOT of candy!
