i'm excited

we're having a halloween party/spooky movie night at our house on saturday and i'm making butterbeer. i found the recipe online and since the movies will probably go late, what's better on a chilly night than a hot cup of butterbeer??

4 cups cream soda
2-3 tbsp butter
2-3 tbsp brown sugar
1 cup cream
4 or 5 Werther's Originals

  1. Put the cream soda in a pan to boil.
  2. Melt the butter and sugar together until the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Pour the butter and sugar mixture into the pan of boiling cream soda.
  4. Add the cream.
  5. Add the Werther's Originals and stir continuously until they melt.
  6. Serve hot

a pop tart for my little pop tart

the little boy in this commercial reminds me of a little chibi version of michael. i also just really like these pop tart commercials, i always notice something new in the background every time i watch them. ten points to the first person to spot the dancing strawberry heads!

of life and loves in bakerville

while i may have been neglecting the blog lately, things have been pleasantly busy in bakerville. audrey and i went to see aunt brandi and cousin ben visiting from baton rouge last week. little ben isn't so little anymore at 10 months and has a nice head of hair now. it was so great to hear his squeaks and giggles again and he's so sweet with his younger cousin. can't wait to see that little family again at christmas!

audrey celebrated her 6th month on friday and is surprising everyone with her talents. she will pull herself up on anything taller than herself, including other babies and joey if he would let her. she's really helped tone my ninja reflexes since her determination is still ahead of her balancing abilities. i live for that triumphant grin she gives me when she pulls up all by herself though, that makes all the close calls and head bumps worth it. she's also discovered that she loves LOVES drinking water and would rather eat what we're eating instead of her socially approved allergenic-free baby food. she loves pasta pieces, ketchup and mild salsa.

today is cool and cloudy. i love having a reason to bundle my favorite girl up in sweaters! we're heading out to shop for aunt valerie's birthday and to the grocery store for cookies to bake for daddy. :)

sweet sweetness

baby benjamin's big browns!
