Rest In Peace Capone.

Our sweet little dog Capone had to be put to sleep today. :( His old age finally got the best of him. He was such a sweet bulldog (Jared's dream dog). He has been in the Fowler family for over 9 years, long before me. He was a puppy when Jared's family was dealing with his dad's sickness. Jared said he always lightened the mood for the family! Needless to say, we are very sad to see him go. He leaves behind his buddy Atilla (our other bulldog). I hope she doesn't get too sad. :(

I took this last picture of Capone this morning.

Pumpkin Fun!

We had fun with some sugar cookies today! I made the cookies and then used a pumpkin cookie cutter to make pumpkin sugar cookies. Spicer and I (along with a few friends) put icing on them and then used candy to make a jack-o-lantern face! So much fun! I just love being a stay-at-home mommy! :)

Happy Halloween Everyone!

potty trained.

My little Spicer Beth is officially "potty trained!" She has been using the potty for months now, but with some accidents here and there. Today, however, she has worn panties the entire day without a single accident! We've been to the library, Bed Bath and Beyond, Sams and Wal-Mart too! She even took her nap in her panties! Unbelievable! I think if she can do all this without an accident she's definitely got it down! I mean flip, I sometimes about wet my pants running all these errands! lol!

While I'm super excited for her and this accomplishment, it does bring a bit of sadness. Sadness because my little baby isn't a baby any more. She really is growing up! She'll be the big "two" next month and I absolutely can't believe it. Where o' where has the time gone? But, man have we had a ton of fun and made so many awesome memories these past 2 years! Thank you Jesus!

"huggy, mommy"

Oh how I love hearing the words, "huggy, mommie." Spicer Beth always says this when she wants to be held. It's so very sweet. And each time we pick her up we usually get a hug! I love it! Thank you Jesus for our sweet little girl who is so very loving! I pray she will always show others God's love! :)

bake and create

I don't know about ya'll, but this time of year always puts me in the mood to bake and create. So... I found a cute little pumpkin pie bites recipe at and thought I'd try it out. I must say, it turned out super cute and was so much fun to make. The perfect little fall baking project! As far as creating goes, I finally got around to making my fall wreath. I bought all the supplies for the wreath at Hobby Lobby at half price. So, I made this wreath for half the price I would have paid at the store, or at least that's what I like to think! It only took about 45 minutes to make the wreath. All I did was place everything where I wanted it and then hot glued it in place. So much fun! And I must say, I'm pretty proud of the way it turned out. I love the feeling you get when you create/make something and it turns out exactly the way you had envisioned! Awesomeness! If you get in the mood to bake or create, you should definitely give both the pumpkin pie bites and wreath a try. If I can do it, anyone can! :)

Here are a few pictures of the wreath and pumpkin pie bites.

Aren't these little guys cute?

fall fun!

Our fall is off to a great start! The weather has been heavenly and we've been so busy decorating and doing fall activities. I just love it! This past weekend Jared put a fall display, complete with hay bales, pumpkins, mums and a scarecrow, in our yard. Spicer and I were able to help and had a blast doing it. We've also been able to use our fire-pit several times. So glad we made that thing! It's been fun having friends and family over to roast marshmallows! Doesn't everyone love that? Especially with this awesome fall weather. To me, it doesn't get much better than family, friends, fire-pit and a nice cool crisp evening. L-O-V-E! Another fun thing we've already done this fall is go to Wild Things Farm. They have a great pumpkin patch, hayrides and a petting zoo! Spicer loved it... we all loved it!

Hope your fall is off to a great start as well! Happy Fall Ya'll! :)

Holy, Holy, Holy!

Isaiah 6
vs1- I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple. vs3- "Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory."

God is Holy! There are not ifs ands or buts about it! When you are confronted with His holiness it will cause you to fall on your face and worship Him. His holiness also brings about confession of sin.

Are you in touch with God's holiness? Is your heart full of worship and admiration for Him? Do you feel the need to confess sin? Think about it! Take some time to focus on God's holiness today. I know I am.
