Last days of fall fun
Since the snow we got here on Sunday did not stay(thank God) and it's both mine and my husband's day off today, we got one last chance to do yard work and play in the piles of leaves. If you notice in the pictures, my little people, are only wearing sweatshirts today, instead of their winter jackets, since it reached about 50 degree's! We've been having to wear winter stuff once again and let me tell you, I had forgotten how much longer it takes to get out the door when you have to put on all this extra stuff. My little people love being outside and playing in the leaves is an added bonus. The little kid in me comes out and I cannot resist a big pile of leaves either. It's pretty hard to resist when you hear their giggles and squeals of delight as they play and try to cover me up with leaves.
Twenty Four at Heart shared a recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies recently and so this morning we made a batch of them. I encourage you to go check out this recipe of hers and give them a try as they are delicious. I used to bake a lot when my five children were growing up but have gotten away from that since neither my husband or I are big sweet eaters. Give us a bowl of chips with salsa or guacamole and we will have it gone in minutes. I do make good guacamole, if I must say so myself.
I'm off to get more work done around here before my two little people wake up from their naps. Hope you are having a great day!
