3 in 1

1. Last week we carved pumpkins. Mine is the spider and Justin did the face Aren't they cute? They didn't last long though. For some reason this year, our pumpkins rotted really fast and we already had to throw them out. I am blaming it on the exceptionally hot October here in Dallas.

2. I finally made cakeball cupcake bites. They are cake mixed with icing and then candy coated. They were really cute and delicious. They were supposed to be Halloween and Cowboys colors but they turned out a little light. We enjoyed them with my parents while we watched the Cowboys win even with Brad Johnson. Then I took some to work and TNT and everyone loved them. Here is the website where I found the recipe. http://bakerella.blogspot.com/2008/05/cupcake-bites-made-easy.html

3. I got a new camera this week! We had to have one for our California vacation. Our old camera no longer holds charge on the battery. So we have to take the battery out and then put it back in before using the camera. Otherwise, the camera will suck all the battery juice. I got a Samsung L210. It was on sale at Best Buy and a Consumer Report best buy. No pictures yet but they should be great. It is a 10.2MP.

Now if I had taken the cupcake photo, I might have been tempted to tweak the blue color to look more Cowboys-ish. Or maybe not.

Hey, really cool pumpkins. Maybe I'll get Kyle to be more creative next year. Or maybe not.
