My momma's fries are better than yours

Want to impress a picky eater?
Need a quick and easy recipe? (if you call this a recipe... hmmm)

Want to involve the little ones in the kitchen?

Well I got great news for you!

Ladies and gents

My Momma's Fries Are Better Than Yours
(and healthier)

I wish I could claim this recipe as mine. Why didn't I think of that?

So are you ready?
Here are the 3 must have ingredients.

* Red potatoes
* Olive oil
The Gourmet Collection Roast Vegetables & Fries Sprinkle Spice Blend

I got the spice blend at T.J. Maxx.

Now are you ready for some technical terms? Throw everything together and bake.

Halloween Banner

As soon as the "witches teeth" are out on the table it's Halloween decoration time at our house. I personally don't care for them but my family loooooves them! Mister "No.1" can't get enough as you can see. He found official home for his hand apparently.

First Halloween décor I put up was the banner. It was simple and fun to make! Throw some blood on the mirror and add bows and blings for finishing touches!
Halloween Chandelier is next!
Stay tuned!

Random Thoughts

I just realized that I've been taking pictures of Jack pretty much every single day since he was born. Crazy I know! Z + J don't know any better, they grew up with the camera's shutter sound...

It's the only way (photography/scrapbooking) I know how to tell a story...
If you want to know what I'm thinking or how I feel about things you can definitely tell by looking at my photo library. I love to capture everyday moments.

This post is dedicated to my camera(s.) Thank you for taking my abuse. Seriously. I use y'all sooo soooo much! But most importantly, thank you for still working.
Whatever I can grab I grab whether it's an iphone, Canon Rebel XTi, Photo Booth, or Sony cyber-shot. I think I go overboard sometimes.
Because I don't really have much of my childhood pictures.
(about a dozen.)

Sad. I. Know.

Overcompensating? Hmmm maybe.
Therefore, I take a lot of pictures of my kids!

Therefore, I don't print all of the pictures I took.

Therefore, I consistently have to clear room on my lap top.

Therefore, I archive/back up.

(both on and off site - very important!!! I can go on and on about this topic. Just to paint you a picture, what if your house burn down or your kid spills juice on your computer or drop them? Yeah you want to make sure your pictures are stored somewhere else too. Please please if you aren't already doing this please do so. You spent so much effort in preserving your family memories and you don't want to risk it.)

Thank you cameras! You keep me sane!
