Hello Blog

It's been a while.  So long, I almost gave up on posting anything, but there might be one or two readers out there yet that are wondering if I'm still around!  Let me know if you're still there!

So what have I been up to over the past month?  

These two little brothers came to visit for several days back in September.  Seems like a long time ago now!  But we had a blast and they were really pretty good, considering it was their first time away from home by themselves for more than a day or two.  We picked them up in St. Louis on our way home from Kansas to give mama and daddy a chance to catch up on work stuff. 

They had fun playing with cousin D.  Watching Scooby Doo and Word World in Grammie's bedroom.

And checking out the aquarium at Bass Pro Shop with Aunt B.  We made a trip to Chucky Cheese too.

There was a little baking last month. I combined a couple of recipes to come up with Gingersnaps with a cream cheese filling.  They turned out pretty good too.

Guacamole Salsa.  Found on Pinterest,  my new favorite thing.  Such a fun way to waste time, but also a great way to find new recipes, craft ideas and sooooo much more.  

A neighborhood fall picnic and bonfire on one of the few chilly evenings we've had.  I made crock pot macaroni and cheese. Possibly the best way ever to make mac and cheese for a crowd! You can find a similar  recipe at Crock Pot Girls.  

We took a short overnight motorcycle trip last weekend.  The leaves are starting to change in parts of Northern Kentucky and Southern Indiana and Ohio and the weather couldn't have been any prettier for a weekend ride. 

On Sunday, we took this two year old to Montgomery Farm for a hay ride to the pumpkin patch.  He loved throwing the straw around on the hay wagon just as much as hunting for a pumpkin!  Typical two year old - we keep reminding ourselves and his parents !  

I've been trying to finish up some old quilting projects and also cleaning out some closets.  A trip to the Goodwill donation sight is necessary soon.  So there you have it, another exciting (ha!) month! Perhaps I'll be back again.  Thanks for checking in!
