Weekend Tales

Sometimes, I often wonder why we can't just make Friday evenings last forever?  It's the only day of the week I can go to sleep knowing I don't have to get up early...granted I'm usually so sleepy by 9 p.m. on Fridays-- I can't keep my eyes open!

Our lives are already getting a little more festive everyday, especially on the weekends with that extra time on our hands...

I have really been missing my Aunt Karen a lot lately, and one way I can feel a little closer to her is by going to the handwritten recipes she collected for me over the years.  I whipped up some of the white hot chocolate she perfected for our wedding Friday night, and garnished it with some reece pieces to add a little fall color.  I'm sharing my very special recipe here, just for you:)

Given my toddler was old enough, I think curling up with this white hot chocolate and watching E.T. would have been the perfect way to spend a weekend night;)  But instead, we slept.

I also do a little more fall decorating everyday.  I am so ready for the real thing though!  It's time for a trip to the pumpkin patch real soon, y'all:)  Does anyone else's trip to the Dolla Gentral with toddler end up like this?  A "loon," ball, and Snoopy hanging on for dear life...

I seen something similar on Pinterest and thought I'd give it a stab with Cam.  Given Cam's idea of painting at this point is sticking the paintbrush up his nose, I was the artist behind these leaf people and I'm not really sure what we will do with them- but I'm thinking they may be a fun festive way to work on identifying noses, eyes, and mouths;)  Food for thought!

And we can't overlook Aunt KK's birthday celebration.  We took a trip Saturday evening over the mountain for some Cheesecake Factory...Happy Birthday KK:)

Happy Monday, everyone!  I hope you all have a great week.
You will definitely want to come back Wednesday...lots of fun stuff in store for October;)

Hi Cassidy,
wow, that white choc cocoa sounds awesome. Your lil man just gets cuter and cuter. Love him with his jeans
and polo shirt and hat with the pacy,
too funny............
He looks like he enjoys those cars
and rides a lot too, so does Brooklyn.
My son made the mistake of putting her on the john deere tractors at Lowe's
and she liked it sooo much she pitched a bit fit when they took her

Hope you are doing well hon,
Blessings, Nellie
