Warm and cozy super snuggly fall recipies!

I just saw on Rachels blog her post about having fall fever and it has inspired me to spread the fall love! Lets all share our favorite warm and cozy fall recipie or treat. I know how yall' love a tag! So tag your it! Give me your best recipie! Here is a Family Favorite:

Double Butterscotch cresent rolls:

Soften I pkg yeast in 1/4 cup warm not hot water
Prepare 1 pkg butterscotch pudding using 1 1/2 cups
evaporated milk. When thickened remove from heat
and add 1/2 cup butter. Cool to lukewarm
Blend in 2 unbeaten eggs
2 tsp salt and the softened yeast
Gradually add 4 1/2 to 5 cups flour to form stiff dough
Cover, let rise until light and double in size, about 1 1/2 hours.

Combine in mixing bowl 1/4 c. melted butter, 2/3 c. shredded coconut
2/3 c. firmly packed brown sugar, 1/3 c. pecans chopped (i leave these out,
because they give Curt cankers) and 2 tbsps flour

Divide dough into thirds. Roll out each part to 15" circle. Cut into twelve
wedges. Place rounded teaspoons of filling on each; roll up starting with
wide end and rolling to point. place on cookie sheet and curve edges up into
a crescent shape. Let rise in a warm place ( I turn my oven on the lowest setting and
set the pans on top) about one hour. Bake a 375 degrees for twelve or 15 minutes.
Frost while still warm.

Combine 1/4 cup brown sugar with 2 tbsp evaporated milk and 2 tbsp. butter in saucepan. Boil one minute. Blend in 1 cup powdered sugar.

Now I know what you are thinking, this recipie will take all day! And it will, but it will be the best day you ever had. Bring on the fall treats! And if anyone happens to stop by my house on conference Sunday, they shall have a Double Butterscotch delight!

Angie did it again!

If you have not had Angie take family photos or pictures of your kids for you yet, what are you waiting for?! I love these pictures so much, especially the ones you got of me and Deacon. I am sure these are pictures I will treasure. Check out her website Sixteen months, I can not believe how fast time flies!

Totally awesome Birthday bash!

Saturday night was our niece Baileys 80s Birthday party! Curtis and I took Deacon and he had a blast! He was so mesmorized by the neon disco lights and by all the kids dancing. We dressed him up as a little 80s prepster and I think he looked pretty cute! I am not sure if I went as an 80s chick or Peg Bundy but either way it was a lot of fun. And how about Kris' outfit, straight out of her closet! Happy Birthday Bailey!

Cabin Sweet Cabin

My little family including Duke took a trip up to Island Park Idaho to meet up with my mom this last weekend. We had such a good time! We have never had such a low key trip to the cabin and it was perfect. We had so much fun waitching dvds of the office, playing scattergories and eating way too much. We also took a day trip to Bozeman Montana and that was tons of fun. It has a Park city feel to it with lots of cute boutiques and yummy places to eat. Deacon had a blast exploring every nook and cranny of the cabin and found a new love for Balloons! Thanks mom for the great trip! Thanks Curt for driving both ways!

This is Deacons latest obsession, shoes. Or as he likes to say: Shooo? Always like a question and in a whisper voice. So funny.

Happy Birthday mom!

This week was my moms birthday and I wanted to give her a little shout out! Since her age may or may not have a five in it I will tell you five things I love about her.

1. She is very generous, like you can call and invite yourself your husband your baby and your brother over for dinner and it will be the tastiest thing you ever ate.

2. She is very smart, book smart, world smart, domestic smart, pop culture smart in a nutshell she will kill you in trivial pursuit.

3. She is a the number one most nuturing person I know. When I had Deacon she came over almost everyday for at least a month just for a couple hours just to hold Deacon or do anything I needed her to do. On the days he did not come I always felt lonely and I will treasure those hours with her and my newborn forever.

4. I gained my love of movies and books from her, two of my very favorite things.

5. She is an all around wonderful mother grandmother mother in law, and , human being.
Happy Birthday Mom! We Love you!
I love this picture of Deacon and his Grandma, they are just content to be together!
