That was seriously fast delivery...
It is so neat too! The kids had a great time looking at it.. They kept asking me to read the story again!
I put the book together using my favorite blog posts..
I will definetely be ordering one of these in the future again and won't mind paying the full price for it (though free was pretty darn nice) The only thing that kind of stinks is some of my images in the book are not very clear... but it is because of my camera I know it.. the photos I put in the book that were not taken by me turned out fantastic..

I was looking for some yummy dessert recipes for the holidays and I stumbled upon Neiman Marcus's Gourmet Desserts...
I mean oh my goodness Gourmet is right....
A $150 carrot cake? Really?
How about this pumpkin cheesecake..
Harvest Pumpkin Cheesecake
This cake is just over the top..
Zebra-Striped Handbag Cake
Some of them looked really really good though
Love the name on this one..
Big Daddy Chocolate Cake
and this looks delicious..
Six Fruit Sorbettos
Well that was fun.. think I will go eat one of Luke's Ding Dongs now... that is as close to gourmet it gets in my house...

Camille Gould is a natural light photgrapher in Gilbert, AZ and she did a wonderful job of capturing the kids and their personalities...
Luke cracks me up in our family picture..this is sooo like him...Again, what the heck?? Mr. Personality he is.....
Check out her site because she has some great deals going on right now and really cute Christmas Cards... ( I still can't believe it is that time already!)

We raided my craft closet and found all the materials they wanted to use on their turkeys...
TWO hours later here are the results.. (took far longer then I anticipated but the kids did pretty much everything themselves..so they were really proud, which made it worth it)
Luke during the project tells me we can't forget Batmans "booms".. I was like do I dare ask what "booms"are..so I was like, "baby..what are Batmans booms".. and he said you know mommy and proceeded to touch my "boob" and I was like ohhhh.. and I said well honey boys don't have "booms" (well most of them anyways) they have muscles and he says to me"okay mommy can we just make sure that he has big booms to put my cool bat on".... point made..please see big booms above..
Here is Hailie with her Princess BallerinaTurkey..I was so impressed with her on this project.. she picked out the crayon colors and colored the whole turkey herself and they are kind of hard to see but she put tiny crystals on the end of the "wings" as she called them.. she was so thrilled with herself.

Or am I wanting to try it just so I can have an excuse to buy two new pairs of shoes... hey, they both need to be exactly the same shoe, right?
I wonder what people's reaction would be.. I am thinking in Gilbert it would probably be "Hey, did you get dressed in the dark..do you know you have two different shoes on?"
Melissa..maybe in New York you could try it out and pull it off... A little more fashion forward there don't ya think..
I am still tempted though..

This one had me cringing....
She was not... unless you count a woman at least over 50 with crunchy over processed blonde hair and fake baked beyond recognition with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth too hot for you.. I kid you not.. wish I could have snapped her pic as well. I am suppose to be driving though..
All of these are real AZ license plates that I took pictures of from my phone while I was at a stop light sitting behind them..
True entertainment at it's best people...
Curious, does anyone have a license plate story that they found hilarious?

Yes, it was hot enough that Luke ran around in the sprinklers after a dare from daddy to see if he could do it without getting wet... he lost the dare..
So much for the weeks of anticipation Hailie had for that movie.. She even went as far as tearing out the advertisement from a magazine and taping it to her vanity so she could tell Tinkerbell that she loved her and couldn't wait to see her movie.. and so I thought for sure she would get into this one... nope..that girl just does not do movies..
