Better than sex pumpkin cake

On our anniversary I had to go to a meeting for a (ridiculous) fundraiser at Lyla's school so we went out to dinner last weekend but I still wanted to make a yummy cake for our dessert. I went to my Pinterest dessert board and found the recipe for this really really good cake!  It's soooo good! You must go try it. It's super easy to make too. And of course I had my little helper! 

I have so many desserts pinned that I want to try and fall/winter is such a good time for baking! Pretty sure it's not going to help me lose any weight though!

Rainy Day Fun

Lyla is in school Monday, Wednesday and Fridays so on Tuesday and Thursdays I try to do some kind of craft with Lyla.. I thought I'd include Buck this week to so I got out the finger paints! I don't think he liked it very much!

Pretty sure he was mad because it didn't taste good.

Yep, I'm "that" mom who saw this as a perfect photo op!

But Lyla on the other hand loved it!!!

Ignore the mess in the kitchen, I was making a cake that I'm going to write about later in the week. 

Have a happy Wednesday friends!

Happy Anniversary to us!

2 years ago today I went to a little white church out in the country with some family and friends and said "I do!" to the man of my dreams. I honestly couldn't have found a better man to call my husband and a father to my daughter (and soon after, my son). Happy Anniversary Smoochie Pants!!

Fall is here!

Fall is upon us here in Oregon.. At least for a few days. And it's making me want to pull out my warm fuzzy boots and cook some stew! 

Since becoming a mom I've wanted to decorate for EVERYTHING! Every holiday and every season and every event! So naturally I'm wanting to decorate for fall. I have found some super cute printables like this one from Kelly @ livelaughrowe and some crafty crafts on the good 'ol pinterest like these..
And sooo much more! Have you blogged about any fun fall crafts or decorations? If so, leave me a comment so I can go check them out!

Summer Fun- Rosse Posse Elk Farm

This summer I tried to keep us busy so we didn't get to bored and stir crazy. We had weekly play dates at the park with my super awesome friend Kristal and her kids and a few other cool moms but we also threw in some fun stuff in the area. We got pretty lucky and found a groupon deal for this neat elk farm that does tours and educates you on elk. They also have a petting zoo with pygmy goats, chickens, a wallaby, a miniature horse, Fallow deer, miniature donkeys and a patagonian cavy. The kids really had fun and I bought a second groupon deal so we can go back with the hubby.

They had cut the antlers a few days before we got there.

First Day of School

I haven't blogged since May!! And it's been to long. I've recently mentioned to some of my blogger friends that I miss it and they've encouraged me to get back into it! So here goes.. I'm going to try to get you guys caught up on what we've been up to!

Lyla started (co-op) Pre-K last week. I was so nervous about how she would do since she's so shy so I volunteered to help out on the first day. It was a lot of fun for me and she did great. And now when I drop her off she's just like "whatever, see ya later!"

That's Adam's happy face.
She made a friend!
It was also the first time I've left Buck for more than just a quick trip to the store. I left him with Daddy and they did great!

I've missed you all! How are you? And leave a comment so I can go to your blog and follow you again since they changed it all up!
