This weekend I made some sugar cookies, when I asked my kids what shape they want to make them in, the answer was anything Christmas. The holidays are coming soon, you can feel it in the air. We are right now cleaning the whole house in preparation for Christmas tree and decorations, so far it looks like tornado went thru our home but I have hope that soon it will look better.

This summer I tried new pie, this one doesn't need any baking but it takes about 3-5 hours to make it. That sounds like a lot, for just a pie but believe me its not that bad. All you need is some cookie crumbs, butter and vanilla and chocolate ice cream. Just make cookie crumbs crust and spread ice cream on top, leave it in a freezer for about 3-5 hours. You can use any ice cream you have, top it with whipped cream or any other toppings that you like on your ice cream.

Life gets busy.

Since I started part time job, life has been really busy. It took a while to adjust to the new schedule but now after two months I think I have most of it under control. I work only four days a week and the free days I spend on catching up with laundry, cleaning, cooking, baking and sewing. Sometimes there is not enough  time in a day to do everything so some things get overlooked like posting on this blog. I still work on simplifying our lives but little bit slower then before. Right now I'm focusing on Christmas, this year I decided to give home made gifts only and since I started this process in summer, now its less crazy. 
My garden is all cleaned the only plant that is still growing is my tomato( indoor). Here is my last basil harvest.

This chocolate cake is so easy, quick and delicious that I make it all the time. It's the same recipe like the chocolate muffins that I posted before, but now its a chocolate cake with strawberries and jello.

Every Halloween I try to make costumes for my kids as much as I can or get things from a thrift store and make them into a one of a kind costume. This year my teen was a hyppie with second hand pants and some accessories and my younger girl decided on being a fox so I made her the tail and ears and got orange sweater and gloves.

Today my little one is 9 and not so little anymore. Her party was on Sunday and this year she decided on Halloween theme. Pictures done before everyone arrived.
