Hi everyone,
I hope all is well inBlog land !! We went to a base fall party last night.. It was great they always have the best partys. We live on a Military base near Wahington D.C. . It is an ok place to live not the best area.. but were thankful we are safe on base !!! Anyway they had a hot dog roast drinks games for the kids...a haunted house, and let me tell you this was a scarry house!!My two oldest went in...not  I..oh no... Why?  I asked them why do you want to get scared? that is the worst feeling in the world ..being scared right? Well they just think I'm !!! I dont get into the scarry dark side of Halloween and I've always dressed them in  non scarry halloween suits..but they are getting older and I thought ok..why not.

From their description I'm glad I didnt go..there was this chain saw man at the back door. When you went to go out , all of a sudden when you think your free!  there is a chain saw cranking up next to you in the dark..and this man with the chainsaw kept coming out and if your standing there to scared to go in...(hello me!! lol)  he starts cahsing you down the road...  Wel it was a good time .We are going to go over by the pentagon to a base for another festival today..petting zoo,.carriage rides, moonbouncys, and such this one is put on by the U.S.O.. this U.S.O is awesome this is the same place I met Duff  off Ace Of Cakes a couple weeks ago..did ya'll see that post? It was my birthday and got a piece of his cake on my birthday...and I was in awe of him. I didnt know what to say but he and his staff were so down to was a great I said before my battery went out in my camera ..I have one ordered.So soon I hope..I will be taking pics again..the trees are so pretty here. I hope you all have a blessed weekend..

My baby 's birthday

Friday was my baby's 7Th birthday. We planned his party for Saturday. We don't know alot of people here so the party was small only about 4 boys and us. He seemed to have a great time. He is really into Army men..GI Joe and such ,so that was the plan. I made camouflage cupcakes .I just used a white cake mix and swirled black,Brown,and green coloring into the cake mix...with Army green was OK.. I think this is the smallest party I have ever had..I had a neighbor over that I just met a young mom with two young boys her husband is deployed now. I have another neighbor with 5 children who's husband is also deployed it is so heart warming to see these family on a voyage without Daddy...I remember those anything to make them forget for awhile anyway. I hope everyone is having a great weekend..We have a long one hubby gets an extra day for Columbus day so no plans just being lazy enjoying our time together...
