#1st on the list of updates is we are making progress in the potty training department. Justice wears his big boy underwear during the day and a diaper at night to avoid late night accidents.  He is facinated as of late with going #2 in his Elmo Potty and calls us over to check out his accomplishment (oh joy!) lol but it is really quite exciting. He is becoming quite the little man =] I cant believe he will be 3 in just 3 weeks.
 Kaylen is doing well in school and is working on a report on New Mexico. This is pretty cool because a couple summers ago he went with his Nana and Bumpa and Lukas to New Mexico on Vacation and has pics he can share with his class to go with his report.  He is learning about their state Seal, and Flag as well as the State Flower amongst other things.

I on the other hand have been trying to stay tuned into some projects and new recipes, but i tell ya being a working Mom is draining. But i love fall and decorating...and cooking warmer meals :) Here are some of the newer meals i've put together:

1) 7 bean soup. Cory had been asking me to make this because his Mom use to make it for him as a kid and he had a taste for it, so she sent me the instructions on how to put it together and with my own lil touches we had ourselves some pretty amazing soup.

2) Kielbasa Bow Tie Pasta Skillet - this was REALLY good.

3) Chicken Vegetable Stir Fry - it was my first time making it and it turned out really good. I will definately be putting these recipes in the dinner rotation.  I found that making a weekly dinner list really does help when i do my grocery shopping too!

With the coming of Fall comes the trees changing colors and leaves falling, but now that i have a tree of my own in my backyard im realizing now just what a big PAIN IN THE BUTT these leaves can be. Tonight i had Kaylen help throw out a big trash bag full of leaves i had cleaned up from my back yard and front pathway.

Not a fun clean up :/ and the leave just keep coming! Oy!

On a positive note i hung up the Fall Wreath i made and painted my nails just for Halloween :)

Spooky Nails =]

Thats all for now folks!
