So every year my husband's work does a pumpkin contest for the people who work there. So of course last moment my husband decides he wants to enter.lol So we stayed up till midnight the night before making what I thought were some pretty awesome pumpkins. Sadly he did not win this year but I thought I would share our fun pumpkins with you :O) Sorry for some poor pictures it was midnight and my good camera died on me.
We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
