 It's no secret that this time of year is a popular time for pies! Out of all the delicious desserts that are around this season, sweet potato and apple pies are my all time fave (with sweet potato taking the lead)! So it's always fun to actually put a spin on a traditional Thanksgiving dessert...in steps pie pops!

So easy, so fun, and so festive!

These little tasty treats are perfect for on the go! They'd be great to take to F...

 'Tis the season! Am I right?! This hot chocolate is the perfect crowd pleaser! It's great for all the parties you may have coming up...Friendsgiving, Thanksgiving, Christmas or other holiday parties! This is a busy, and in some places, a cold season, so warm it up a bit by making this delicious hot chocolate! It's perfect because it makes a large batch which makes it suitable for a gathering. Or if your family just loves hot...

13!!! I feel like I just blogged about her 12th birthday party and here I am already blogging her 13th! I wish someone could seriously answer the "Where does the time go?" question. So I'm pretty sure it was the day after her 12th birthday party when she she asked me if she could have her 13th birthday at a hotel. My first reaction was "Absolutely not!" We literally just celebrated her 12th, I definitely did not want to talk...

This time of year is my favorite for baking and making all the festive treats! There are SO many cute and fun things you can bake and create with  your kiddos! I get so inspired by all types of things I see online and in the craft stores, my mind kind of goes crazy, haha! We will be making and baking all the things from now until Christmas and I'm so excited to share with you so you can make some fun memories with your familie...

A little slow on getting Lenox's "blue donut birthday" party posted here but I think I was a little slow on getting this party planned as well! Maybe I was in denial over my baby turning 3, I don't know, but this party didn't get a start until a couple months beforehand. The theme changed a couple times...went from super early thoughts of doing a lumberjack type theme (because I lover buffalo plaid), then went to Party Animal...

I have to start off by saying that Fall is my absolute favorite season! Like I live for Fall! And a funny fact is that even though I was not born in the Fall, my parents were going to name me Autumn, how fitting would that have been?! (Just in case you're wondering how they settled on Kara, my grandmother's name was Caroline and it's a play off of her name.)

So, back to what I was saying about Fall, it's my fave, and I love eve...

And...3...2..1...he's 7! Can't believe he's 7! I know I say that every time one of the kids' birthdays role around but the years just fly by so fast! 

Seven just seems so much older! He's not the little baby that we all used to laugh at almost everything that came out of his mouth because he was wise beyond his years! He was my little talker, still is, but we were always so surprised at how much and how clearly he talked at suc...

 She's 12!! Still hard to believe that in ONE year she will be a teenager! I'm going to need this next year to go by suuuuper slow!! I'm not ready for that! Like, not at all! Obviously I can't slow down time, because believe me if I could, I would! So I will just be enjoying this next year of having a preteen slowly, taking it all in and spending as much one on one time with her as I can before she ditches me for her friends!...

 Grab some ears and take a chair (haha!) and get ready for some fun and cute birthday party pictures! (Oh, and a cute baby, or should I say toddler, too!)

A vintage Steamboat Willie Mickey greeted guests and invited them to grab a pair of either Mickey or Minnie Mouse ears!

The cake table! I really wanted a vintage feel, so instead of using a 6 foot long table like I usually would I used a small console table that is usually in...

Today my littlest one turns TWO and I'm in disbelief! These past two years have flown by so fast! I feel like my husband was just driving me to the hospital as I felt like I was dying! Haha, worst car ride of my life but led to the speedy delivery of the most precious little boy! He was definitely the perfect addition to this little family of ours. We all fell head over heels for him then and are still obsessed with him now!

So...
