This is going to be our new tradition for pumpkin carving night. Instead of making a pumpkin desert (which I love but not so much when you smell the stink of pumpkin guts coming out of your pumpkin you decorate) I thought we needed a festive, non-pumpkin, treat. So this is just a 2 layer chocolate cake with tinted pb frosting. I used two reeses peanut butter cups, chocolate frosting, and hershey bars. The kids loved it!These pumpkins were so simple to make. Sew some scrap material in half (right sides facing) Then sew a loose stitch on the top and gather it together. Fill your pumpkin with batting or (if you're cheap like me...an old shirt and plastic bags. I gathered some sticks from outside and hot glued them on top along with a bow and a felt leaf.

We have this table. This table was given to us and it has moved with us to every place (up to 6 now) and I've never loved it. It's thick and heavy and not my favorite color. After about 3 moves it stopped cleaning up very well. I couldn't get food off. It's as if the food morphed into the grain of the table. So, about 2 years ago I talked about wanting to paint it. About 1 year ago I went to Home Depot and actually bought the black spray paint. Then a year passed and I hadn't done anything.
I bought this cute outfit for Miss Belle at the salvation army for 1 dollar. I loved the knit on top. I got it home and it looked so ridiculous on my tiny baby. The yellow was just all wrong in so many places.
