I spent all Saturday baking and finishing my Halloween costume. I've been really into baking cute festive treats lately and I've been excited all week about making these. I got the idea from here. They didn't come out as cute as hers (they never do) but were a HUGE hit at the ward Halloween party. They were cute and delicious. The actual pumpkin pie part wasn't my favorite (but really good), probably my fault somehow since they didn't look as orange as hers. Next time I'll find a new recipe for the filling. I also made tiny pecan pies, the same as the pumpkin but without the stem. I used this recipe and they were AMAZING. Next time I'll do those exactly the same! I'm so bummed I didn't get a picture of those cute little things. I brought all the pumpkin and pecan pies to the ward Halloween Party/Chili Cook-off last night, I brought at least 50 and they were gone so fast. Really, like gone in 5 minutes. Next time keep lots at home for myself - I can't wait to make these again!

And here's our costume! A bun in the oven - I thought it was pretty cute. We won most creative :). Calder did have an apron later on in the night - we didn't have one so we had to borrow.

Thoughts for Today

  1. Yesterday we left church early because I was feeling sick. Kind of like "It's so hot in here I might pass out and die" kind of sick. Nevermind that half of the ward was still wearing coats inside. So we went home and I laid down to take a short nap. I came back out in the living room a little later and Calder was sitting on the couch in sweats and a big hoodie bundled up in blankets. He had opened the door so I wouldn't be hot when I came out. It was perfect. I love him.
  2. It's snowing today. Big fat fluffly wet snow. If it were November 12, it'd be thrilled and think it's lovely. Since it's October 12, I'm a little grumpy about it. It's way to early to have to brush wet sludge off the car. Merry Christmas. (It is pretty, but the kind of pretty I like to see much later in the season) I took a picture, I'll try to remember to add it later.
  3. I absolutely must learn how to sew. ASAP. I found this site and I want everything. Can I please sew ruffles on the booty of every one of my little girl's onesies? And she probably needs lots of those cute scarf leg warmers. Anyone want to teach me? Maybe if I had a sewing machine, and space for a sewing machine, and wasn't working and going to school, I'd be doing this already. It all looks so easy and cute!

11 weeks. 4 days.

Only 11 more weeks until the baby comes!

 We're getting so excited! I love to watch loud action movies now because she goes a little bit crazy when there's an explosion. And I have been craving rice krispy treats.

I haven't blogged much because really, there's nothing to say. We go to school (I finally bought a rolling backpack. I look awesome.) I go to work. We come home and watch TV.
