Chris and the kids were busy geeking while i was getting ready this morning. They were inspired by a article on Geek Dad about claymation with the iphone. Here is the amusing results of their work!! Enjoy!!!
Mitchell insisted that this was meant to share with all of you, our friends in blogland!! We knew you could not be here to have breakfast with us but we'll share the recipe so maybe sometime you can try it on a day off with your family!! It is very very yummy! He would not let us eat until i took a picture!
Chris was home, day off for Veteran's day, so we wanted to make our morning special. No cold cereal for anyone this day. We got to spend some time together because it feels like lately we don't have much time. Hmmm...and i am not sure there is going to be any more after this baby comes.
French Toast Souffle
1 French Bread(long baguette) cut into 1 inch cubes 1 pkg.(8 oz) Cream Cheese, softened 6 Eggs 2/3 c. Half and Half 1/2 c. Maple Syrup 1 1/2 c. Milk 1/2 t. Vanilla 2 T. Confectioners Sugar
Place the bread in a greased 9x13 pan. In a large bowl beat together the cream cheese and eggs until smooth. Now add in the half and half, maple syrup, milk and vanilla. Pour mixture over the top. Don't worry if the cream cheese gets a little chunky, it looks a little funny but it tastes good. Cover the pan and place in fridge overnight. In the morning preheat the oven to 375. Take pan from fridge and let sit out at room temp for 30 minutes. Then bake, uncovered for 30 minutes or until done. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar. Serve hot with Maple Syrup.
I thought long and hard about this, but i figured it was time to keep it real, people!!!! Time to share the real current me!! :o)
I am 34 weeks pregnant. There is one big, real baby in there. We are all getting very excited....we have nothing ready in the nursery to share, but when we do i will take pictures. I am feeling ready and not even close to ready all at the same time!
I know that the counter says 39 but it is off by a few days because of my c-section date.
There was some serious pumpkin prepping...i think this was the first year that Avery carved her own pumpkin...with just a little help from Dad. She did such an excellent job
And, despite that look on his face, playing with the "guts" of the pumpkin was his favorite part!!!
We had gone through so many costume ideas before we got to the final choice...mitch was going to be Johnny Cash or a ghost or Snakeye's!! He finally chose a knight. My favorite part of this costume is his head piece, and his much loved duck taped sword! This is his serious business knight face.
Avery originally wanted to be a pirate girl. Her back up plan was being a snow princess....i was a little worried. But Target was able to back up her plan and there it was the snowy outfit. I think she looks like a Victorian caroler. In the end she was glad to have made this choice because several of the other girls on the loop were pirates and she wanted to be original. Mission accomplished.
We only managed a few snapshots of trick or treating before it got too dark!!! This one is my favorite. Chris accidentally shot it like this but it seems kind of halloweenish to me...you know a little ghosty!!!
In the end they had fun, and that is what matters....after all for them Halloween is only about candy and costumes...none of the scary stuff!
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
