Our guest bathroom has been out of order for some time now. So Larry and I finally got our act together and fixed the toilet. It was a simple problem really...the wax ring.

I have no idea what this is. It looks lot like a giant peach pit with little red beans growing on it. I found it in the yard during our funeral service for Romo. Your guess is as good as mine.

Romo the hamster passed away. So we held a funeral service.
Every year Mylan has a Halloween Party. This year it is his Third Annual Halloween Party. Larry and I invite a few of our closest friends who have little ones and Mylan invites five of his school friends. In the past I have organized activities for the kids to do at the party, however, this year Mylan has requested that I don't do that because it embarrasses him. I guess he's getting to that age where certain things that parents do embarrass him. Mylan and I have already decorated our party room and I have been working away at getting our treats baked. The only things left to do tomorrow is finish up the treats and clean the house. A full day ahead. This year we are working with a limited budget so we have scaled down our food menu a lot more than last year and we also reused last years decorations. But the kids will never notice because all they care about in candy and party time. I will definatly plan better next year. Last but not least, it's time to party!
While my boys are away at a Derby Football game I am busy baking the treats for Mylan's Halloween Party tomorrow night. However, I am having a little trouble. I am trying to make orange colored icing for the cupcakes and it's not working! It looks more like pink! AHHH! I know, I know, yellow and red makes orange but how much yellow and how much red?! Oh well I'll figure it out eventually. Hopefully I'll figure it out before I run out of food coloring though...just kidding!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been pretty busy. I have a full time job, a part time job, a household and family to care for and I also help my mother and grandmother out during the week. So as you can see I'm a busy girl. This week I am getting ready for Mylan's 3rd Annual Halloween Party which takes place on Saturday. Wish me luck, I'll have a household full of of kids!
