HALLOWEEN Treat Night w/ The Family

This Halloween my husband and I decided to create a new family tradition that we do to include all of our children. Every Halloween, Sean and I would carve pumpkins, fix a DIRT PIE, and make decorations. This halloween we have added a new twist to an old tradition and it includes Monster Punch, Halloween MONSTER MASH dance off, and a pumpkin decoration competition.

DIRT PIE

Ingredients include: 1 Bag of Oreos
                                    1 cup of Powdered Sugar
                                    8 oz package of Cream Cheese
                                    Mixing BOWL
                                    8 oz box of instant Vanilla/Chocolate pudding
                                    12 oz whip topping
                                    Gummy Worms

  1. Place the cookies into a sealed plastic bag and crush them with a knife or rolling pin.
  2.  In a bowl, mix the cream cheese and sugar until smooth.
  3.  Blend the pudding mix into the cream cheese mixture.
  4.  Stir about half of the cookie crumbs into the whipped topping.
  5.  Layer the ingredients -- cookie crumbs, cream cheese mixture and whipped topping -- in a clear glass dish. Alternate the layers and finish with a sprinkle of "dirt" cookie crumbs on top. Add gummy worms, if desired                                                            (listed on http://www.ehow.com/how_2112101_make-dirt-pie.html)

MONSTER PUNCH

                                                    Ingredients include: 3 packs of Kool-Aid Lime
                                                                           1 bottle of fruit juice
                                                                           Fresh/Frozen fruit pieces
                                                                                                    1 gal Sherbet

Mix all ingredients (in any order) in a large tub, which can hold several gallons. Stir so that the sherbert is completely dissolved. With the exception of the kool-aid and sherbert, as much or little of the other ingredients may be used.
*****ADULTS CAN ADD VODKA! Drink RESPONSIBLY*****
 
The Pumpkin Decorations can be done with PAINT, CRAYONS, or COLORED PENCILS! It is up to you to challenge your children's creativity! THE MONSTER MASH DANCE OFF is what it is! You have to teach your children this traditional Halloween dance while watching them face-off to the latest dances.
 
I am truly blessed to have the family that I have, and we love how we are blended our families together. You must create traditions in your family structure to help give your children something to look forward too and something that they will continue to pass on from generation to generation. ENJOY!

Organic MASHUPS shawty!!!

Check out a favorite snack that my children ages 6 to 18 years old enjoy! It is easy to open, a quick on the go snack, and the flavors are delicious! I am personally waiting on them to create an Organic Mashups WATERMELON flavor, but then again this was never made for adults! LOL! Buy some & watch your children enjoy their fruits!

FOR MY MOM: We're Stepping OUT!

When my Mom told my siblings and I that she had Type 2 Diabetes she said it with ease. Although we already knew something was up with the increased doctor's visits and her dramatic weight loss this confirmed something was up. When I found out that there was more that I could learn to help her through this and to keep her on track I began to study more about what she goes through daily.


The Be A Role Model Organization family & friends!

You want to walk the journey with your relatives that suffer or go through things and you want to let them know they are not alone. Thanks to my dear friend Cristal and her organization Be A Role Model we were able to show my Mother that we care about her and others that deal with Diabetes daily. My Mom drove overnight to make the walk and she went back home to Mississippi the next day. We were able to raise money in honor and walk with her for an hour or two through this journey. Take care of yourself and make sure that you show others around you that you care about their well-being.

Thank You IMAN!

 God bless the people in Somalia! I have written about the Famine and my relationship with the ONE campaign keeps me connected!

This bracelet is the Noir Jewelry for MODELINIA special-edition Somalia bracelet to raise awareness about the famine in Somalia. All of the proceeds from the sales of this bracelet will go straight to Save the Children. They help aid the Horn of Africa with food and water while treating the children in those affected areas!
