Mama Tried!

Happy Thursday!!!
I made a carmel apple just for you today!! Who am I kidding! I bought those bad boys! lol!! I just decorated the bags up!! They are so pretty just to look at!





Anyway, why is it so hard to get a good picture of my boys together? It seems I can never get the perfect family picture!

Hey Jennifer! I love that they are store-bought but you "dressed" them up! Lately I see all the yummy treats everyone is making here in blogland and I just kind of sigh...because I feel like I can barely get my laundry done let alone make goodies from scratch! Yours is the best of both worlds and your kiddos are darling! I think these kind of pics are the best because they capture this stage at its best!

Yummm caramel apples.

When the boys are older, these "imperfect" pictures will be the ones you cherish because they show their little boy personalities. They are adorable! La

Hi sweet blog friend!
First of all, your boys are SO STINKIN' CUTE!! Love the pictures :)
The caramel apples look so yummy...it makes me want one right now. Also-- I LOVE how you wrapped them in the clear bags and put the awesome colored ribbons on them. They're so festive looking!
I also love the BOO sign too. So nice!
Have a great day Jennifer :)

Oh Honey, you didn't try, you suceeded! Is that spelled right? LOL! Anywho, I love how you used three different cute ribbons on those apples, after buying them from the store. That (time saving) creativity is going to take you far while those boys are young. They are precious, and you really did get some good photos! I love them!

Audrey said...

Apples look great...I don't blame you about the store bought..at least you gave them your "special touch". I like the pictures on the porch. They are precious! Love your outside decor as well.

Victoria said...

Awwww, your boys are adorable! I remember buying my boys matching Guess outfits and taking them to JC Penney for photos' and my middle son just wasn't going for it...so it ended up just being the oldest and youngest in the pics. I was so sad!

So what if you bought the apples, you still added your own touch to them:)

Pam said...

I love that you bought them and prettied them up. I tried to make them once and it was such a mess to clean up that I vowed never to try that again. I think they have sheets of caramel that you just wrap on them, so that might be a tad easier.

And the reason you will never get the perfect picture is that you have two boys. With two girls, maybe, with two boys never.

Darling little boys you have.. Who cares, you didn't make the candy apples. You have dressed them up ad they are so cute.... Linda

I don't know who in the world has time to make all those goodies in the first place. I love how cute you dressed yours. That's such a great idea. Love your vignette and the plate and stand for the apples are gorgeous. Such a lovely vignette. Your boys are absolutely the cutest. They look like so much fun. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. I really appreciate it. Great post. Hugs, Marty
