Holiday Creations

I decided today would be the perfect time to start working on my Holiday Cards. I really love how they are coming together and I always love a good opportunity to design. Someday I hope to do more of it. It is definitely a passion of mine. Hope you enjoy the start of my holiday creations.

Pumpkin Adnvetures

A couple of weeks ago Derek and I found the cutest Pumpkin Patch close to where we live.  We had a blast picking out our pumpkins. As always, Derek took his time making sure his pumpkin would be perfect for his carving design

A couple weeks later we finally found the time to carve our pumpkin masterpieces. So last night we set up our carving table and turned on a Halloween movie and started carving.

 We may not love all the scary things of Halloween but we love the holiday and especially the pumpkin carving. It's one of Derek's favorite things. He is very creative and talented so it's just another way for him to express his love for art. His designs are always perfect and meticulous.

Love Halloween! Before that comes though, Derek will celebrate his golden birthday on Tuesday. I am excited to celebrate that with him.

Get Excited. For Halloween.

So this wonderful blog I follow posts her favorite things from Pinterest every Friday.  I decided to join in today and post some of the things that are getting me excited for Halloween.

How can you not be excited with things as adorable as this?

I secretly wish I was throwing a Halloween Party because of all the fun things you can make a create. Thanks to Pinterest's crafty ideas I've already created some fun Halloween decorations for our apartment. I love the creativity different season's bring.

Happy Halloween...almost!

Easiest. Recipe. Ever.

So I am going to assume everyone has cravings for pumpkin during the fall season like I do.  As soon as it starts getting cold I just want to drink hot chocolate and bake muffins, bread, and cookies.Anyways, on Sunday we were going to celebrate my dad's birthday as a family.  I wanted to make him some kind of dessert he would enjoy and would be mostly healthy.  I found this recipe and tweaked it.  The result: delicious, cake like cookies.  I made some with and without chocolate chips.  You'll have to try it and let me know what you think.

The Beauty of Fall

Last Sunday Derek and I took a drive up the canyon in American Fork with my family.  It was in the Unita's.  It was such a wonderful way to celebrate fall.  After all, who knew that it would be freezing and snowing only four days later? No one. The weather was perfect and everything was beautiful.  These pictures were taken on Derek's iPhone so they don't do any justice to the actual  beauty of this place.

Happy Fall everyone!  I hope you're enjoying the cool, crisp weather that this season brings and that you have time to admire the beauty around you.

Halloween Lights!

I found this on Pinterest and I am so glad I took the time to make these.  If you have any questions about them let me know.  It adds such a cute Halloween flare to our small apartment.
