a LOT to catch up on

First up, a few easy recipes we've tried lately:

{M&M's Kisses Pretzels}
All you need: 
Pretzels, M&M's, & Hershey Kisses 
(we used the original milk chocolate style but they would be good with any) 
Line up your pretzels & place your Hershey Kisses on top! 
Pre heat your oven to 250 degrees.
Bake for 2-3 minutes.
Once they are out, push a M&M on top of the Kiss.
Let them cool & Enjoy!
YUM!  We made them for Chloe's class and pushed blue & gold M&M's on top...showing our CA spirit!

Next Up:

{Easy Pumpkin Muffins} 
All you need are the 2 ingredients above....1 can of Pumpkin & 1 Yellow Cake Mix.
Mix Yellow Cake Mix and Pumpkin until well blended.

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
Place large scoops of mix inside of cupcake tins.
Bake for approx. 17 minutes!
Cool & Enjoy

Last weekend, we went to sweet Ansley's 5th Birthday Party.  It was at a new place called Horsefeathers!  It was so fun!  The kids were able to pick out a piece of pottery to paint.  Ansley's Momma, Camille, worked so hard on making the ladybug theme come to life!  Everything was adorable & the kids had a great time!

Later that night, we had a cookout at Brittnye & Steven's house.  Always a great time!  Our boys are destined to be besties as well!  They are only 2 1/2 months apart!

Thanks Auntie Brittnye for my new Halloween jammies!

A few other photos from the week: 
Thanks to Amanda, we are now the proud owners of this bear dress up thing.  Not really sure what it is, but Chloe loves it!  Amanda was cleaning out & passed this on to us! 
Park time...both kids love being outside and especially the swings.  
Oh, the last photo shows Carter's 2 bottom teeth!  He eats like he has a mouth full so I'm glad he is actually starting to get some in!

This picture is not very good, but I wanted to document this big moment.  
Chloe {on her own accord} wanted to be dropped off at school instead of me walking her in.  I don't know if this will continue, but it was a big day that showed me how she is becoming more and more independent every day!
