"Sense"-ational Tuesday also known to me as Take the Time Tuesday

"Sense"-ational Sundays came from Emily Adams an old co-worker who used to blog her senses every week. She always started with this... "Our senses tell a story. I've committed to recording my 5 senses for the past week - every week - as an exercise to explore my sensory world. I challenge you to do the same. If you choose to do so, just blog your 5 senses every Sunday (or Tuesday for those of us who are a little lazy on Sunday) & let me know - I'd love to read along!" I find that it is a great way to share with my family and friends some of the highlight of things that I have done during the week that mean the most to me.

Thanksgiving/Fall Decorations... In our house we love fall. We love the smells, the colors, the sounds, the whole feel of fall. So we decided to get a jumpstart and pull out the decor. I mean it isn't like we have house parties once a week, so it is just us that gets to enjoy it. Let me just say, we already have and I LOVE IT!

Happy Birthday Connor! This weekend was Connor's birthday party and Tia (my BFF) did a great job putting it together. Just look at this little guy waiting patiently for everyone to come sing him Happy Birthday!

Spice Cupcakes with Buttercream Icing. Hello Mom, didn't you know I was on a diet? I was doing great until she asked me to make them yesterday. Needless to say I will probably sneak another one tonight and regret it in the morning, but whats life if you can't enjoy it... right?!?

Wrapping paper and a Nerf gun. I think I had the best present at the party. I didn't realize the thing was a rapid fire one that shoots off 20 darts until his dad shot them while I was holding up a cup (empty) and one stuck to my arm. I think I laughed for 5 minutes solid. That thing is FUN!
Spice Cinnamon, the best fall scent on earth. Jake and I love it and are so happy to have the house decked out for fall! We had the candles burning all weekend with this fantastic scent... LOVE IT!

Here are a couple other pictures of the party. One is Connor and Hannah (his sister) and the other one is Laci (I know she could look a little happier) in the "car" for the obsticle course. It was so cute, and all the kids had a great time.
