Be safe..

I want to remind people to please be safe tonight. Do not drink and drive.. 8 years ago 3 of my friends were in an accident, hit by a drunk driver. The driver; Randy was killed instantly, my very good friend Jennifer was severely injured and passed away 6 days later and the other passenger; Steve was hurt but luckily survived but to this day is haunted by those memories..
Rest in Peace Jen and Randy

Lyla really likes to cook and help me prepare stuff. She makes her own peanut butter and jelly "sammiches" (with supervision), she puts whatever I'm cutting up (except raw meat) into the pan for me, she uses the hand mixer, cracks eggs, pours the measured stuff for me.. So when I was at the store and craving pizza I decided that we would make our own! 

I bought a package of mini Boboli crusts for us and a regular sized one for hubby (he worked a long day that day so I knew he'd be extra hungry). I grabbed all the toppings we usually eat; cheese, pepperoni, salami, olives, pineapple.. Forgot the mushrooms for hubby. Thankfully I didn't tell Lyla I was going to let her put her own together or I would've heard about it allllllll day!

Dinner time rolled around and I asked her if she wanted to make her own. Her response was "yeaaaaaaaah"!! So she dragged her little chair over to the counter while I got it all out. I poured the sauce on, she used a spoon and spread it all around. I put some cheese in a bowl and explained to her that she needed to sprinkle it all over. While she did that I opened everything up an put some of everything onto a paper plate for her to put what she wanted on her pizza. She did a pretty good job! And we had fun together! It wasn't stressful like cooking some other things with her can be. 

Here's a pic of her making hers.

Do you have any fun foods that you let your kids help with? I'd love more ideas!

Fall Bucket List

Fall is my most favoritest (yeah I make up words) time of year!! I also think I'm a little crazy because on top of this bucket list I'm about to type up I will also be having a baby sometime soon! But here is my list of things I'd like to do.

  1. Go to the pumpkin patch.. Of course.
  2. Go on a hay ride.
  3. Reallllly decorate our house for Halloween.
  4. Host a pumpkin carving party.
  5. Watch the Halloween/Thanksgiving Charlie Brown shows. (I just bought the combo pack with those 2 and Christmas)
  6. Get family pics taken.
  7. Drink apple cider by the fire.

I really probably could go on and on but I don't want to be to ambitious because then I'm just setting myself up for failure! Do you have a Fall Bucket List? If so leave me a comment so I can come check it out!
