Pumpkin Patch

This weekend we did the Scholz Farm Pumpkin Patch. We had initially gone to a different patch, but the lot was so muddy that a car in front of us got stuck and Derek got out to help... he ended up covered in mud, so we went home for him to change and shower quickly and just went closer to home... I'm so glad we did! We love Scholz Farms!

Chocolate White Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are a favorite in my family... I came across the recipe on or some form of it. I can't seem to find the exact same recipe I have written down. Well, here it is for everyone to enjoy!

What you will need:

2 1/4 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

2/3 cup cocoa

2 sticks of butter (softened)

3/4 cup sugar

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 eggs

white chocolate chips

In a large bowl cream together butter, sugar, and brown sugar together. Beat in eggs. Stir in vanilla. (set aside)

In a separate bowl mix together flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda

Stir both mixtures together and stir in white chocolate chips (I never measure the chips, I just pour... the recipe calls for 2/3 cup, but to me that's just not enough!!!)

Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes

First day of Preschool

Last winter, most of my friends with kids Owen's age were registering for preschool. I was bummed because I knew Owen would love school, but with Hawaii being so up in the air as to when we would be home, we couldn't register him anywhere. When we got home and started taking Laney to school 3 days a week, he got super upset about not being able to go too. I tried my hardest to get him into the same class as Laney, but ended up going with my old preschool Buttons and Bows. Thankfully they had an opening for him and he started October 1st!

This little boy ran in as soon as I said he could go to class!

Sorry, we've been gone from the blogging world. I thought I'd be so much better at it while in Hawaii and I totally proved myself wrong! I spent a lot of my time at the beach with Owen or trying to keep him entertained. Now, that we're home I'm back to watching Laney and Boston and working here and there for Weight Watchers. We've been busy every weekend and busy getting used to being home again. This last Sunday we had nothing to do, but grocery shop... I loved it!!! I didn't shower all day and went to Winco in my jammies! I mean, it's Winco... I wasn't the worst looking person haha! So, hopefully I will make time to blog... but I'm not thinking I will do all that well... look at my track record! Anyways, I might do the Projecy 365 which is a photo every day for a year... keep looking cause I might just surprise everyone!
