Eli Hotdog

No other comment needed here...

except, that is the happiest hotdog, I've ever seen.

Hailey and Jaden

I know that these two characters are from Toy Story-
but since, I'm "old and out of the loop"- I can't tell you their names :)
But, "good job" on the costumes, Ashley.

I swiped these from FB too,

Posting Quicker...

than you can keep up. hehe
(Scroll down, you may have missed something, this week.)

I just couldn't pass these up- swiped em from FB.
They don't even go together, but I "LIKE" both.
(Remember, you can click on a pic. and it will enlarge)

Halloween Treats

"Finger Food"-
"Golden Oreo Funstix" dipped in white candy coating and "nails" with slivered almonds.

Mini size "Finger Food" made with "Wheat Thins Stix".
(also candy coating and slivered almonds)

"Sweet Spiders"-
Homemade or store bought chocolate cookies- chocolate frosting in the middle, colored licorice string legs, edible candy eyes (attached with a small dab of frosting).

"Meringue Google Eyeballs"-
baked meringue with candy coated choc. pieces or candy coated Reese's pieces.
Anyone want the meringue recipe?

"Meringue Ghosts"

"Google Meringue Eyeballs" on a stick.
(As a fun decoration in a smoothie or hot chocolate) I have two smoothie recipes and one, green hot choc. recipe. Anyone want those?

Creme Filled Cookie "Google Eyes". Open a creme filled cookie use the half with creme to make these eyes. (Use the cookie half with out creme to make the "cookie spiders".)  

Use the cookie "Google Eyes" to make Owl cupcakes. Two of these are regular cupcake size- two are made with a wider, shorter, cupcake paper. (Eyes made with Reese's pieces as well as the beak.)


For our ladies "Super Saturday" I did a display table of Halloween ideas. Some food ideas and some cute bags, jars, and buckets. And a couple of center piece ideas.
See anything else you might want more details on? I haven't had a chance to get pictures of everything- "my stuff" went to another ladie's house and I haven't retrieved it yet :)

JFK on Mormons



I realize that this is "old", but it still rings true. By the way... we are Christian, even though many people think otherwise.

Treasures (?) from China

I knew, the day after Ron was released from the hospital, that he had had a traumatic experience, and he was still sick. The first thing he did was take me shopping! (hehe)

He hates shopping.

I did bring home a few treasures from China.
(and btw- this is my last "China post", time to get back to reality, back to work, and back to normal- whatever "normal" is :)


An "Owl Backpack" and "Fish Purses".

"Fish Table Mat".
The fish are all hand stitched with bright colored embroidery thread.

"Round, Paper Lanterns".
I really don't even have a place for such things in my house now-
but I have a plan for where they will go when we build a new house.



A cute little "Painted Glass Jar".







And, of course my favorite treasure, that I came home from China with...
