DIY: Fall Leaves

 DIY Painted Fall Leaves


What makes Fall so beautiful are the changing colors of the leaves and the way they decorate the ground everywhere you look. Here is a way to enjoy the season by creating art with those gorgeous leaves  on the ground and painting them to use for decoration. Unfortunately, here in Arizona, we don’t get much of a Fall until later in the year – and even then it is very short. If you haven’t experienced falling leaves yet, you can use fake leaves like we did.  This is a very simple and inexpensive activity that is exciting for kids as well as adults.

In my defense, I had woken up in a panic the day of his birthday and quickly rushed out the door to the airport. Luckily, I gave him his gift three weeks early so at least I got that part right.

Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies Recipe

In an attempt to make up for my mistakes, I’ve been baking and cooking up a storm. One of the recipes he requested was this cookie recipe. He claims that these are his favorite cookies now and I’m not complaining (they use a cake mix and are super easy). Give this recipe a try, I promise you won’t regret it! View full post »
