My neighbor was getting ready for Fear Factor so I looked up this recipe to make slime. The boys loved it and Shane walked in the door just as we were getting messy. It looks solid, but you pick it up and it oozes through your fingers. Goop is so fun, messy, but cleans easily with water. Mix 3/4 cup cornstarch, 2 cups water, food coloring and dig in!

Cake to celebrate Tytan starting preschool

I've been watching Cake Boss on TLC and really wanted to try fondant. I tried a box cake and store bought frosting because I wanted to focus on the fondant, but it was a bad idea. I should have done everything from scratch. The cake was really good, but too soft and fluffy. It was breaking apart before I even iced it. Tytan loved the cake and he was ready to eat it as soon as he got home from his first day of preschool.

Fall means FOOTBALL!

We have been looking forward to this weekend for a while now. Last year we didn't make it to a football game, so this year we bought tickets for the whole Cougar football season. The seats aren't great, but we didn't know how long we would actually last with two 19 month kiddos. Shane and I packed the twins in hiking packs and Tytan had to walk from the car, which was really really really far. Poor Tytan was ready for a nap by the time we got to the game. We were running a little later than we wanted to be, but made it just in time for the kick off. The kids did much better than the Cougars did and we got some great pictures.
