Late Night Carmel Apples

Last night after the other two kiddos were in bed, Daddy and Buddy Boy made some carmel apples for us to enjoy!  

Funny thing.... Buddy Boy didn't want to eat them, just make them.  Then off to bed:)

Yay for Daddy / son bonding time!

Dairy Free

Buddy Boy has been really sick (again).  He had another trip to the ER via ambulance less then two weeks ago due to an asthma/panic attack.  I finally said enough and contacted his ear, nose and throat doctor.  We did allergy test and have scheduled a sleep study... but whatever the outcome of those, we are taking his tonsils out!  This will hopefully help with all his issues.

Anywho... his allergy test came back and he is officially allergic to dairy.  Shocker, right?  Well since he has never drank milk before, I didn't think it would be too much of a change for him.  Except the poor kid LOVES cheese, and yogurt, and butter, and ice cream, ect.  So we are slowly trying to substitute and replace what he once loved. 

This morning he asked for his favorite breakfast... Banana cinnamon pancakes:)  Yum!
So this is the recipe I had and altered to work for him.  Hope you all enjoy!

1 1/2 cups flour
3tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups almond milk (unsweetened original)
3 tbsp oil
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 bananas, sliced 

In a small bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. 
In a larger bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. 
Add the bananas and let sit for 10min. 
Mix wet and dry.
The cook like regular pancakes:)

If you have any yummy dairy free or vegan recipes, I would love for you to share.

Pumpkin Farm!

We have gone to this pumpkin farm since Bubba Love was one, and every year we have a blast!  This year we were lucky enough to get a pass from to save some money, which made it even better;)

All the kiddos... and then Buddy Boy!  He wanted to take a solo picture, then tried to act like he was too cool for school.  Silly boy.

Of coarse there was face painting.

This was super cute and the kids LOVED it.  They were each given a rubber ducky to put in the race tube and then had to use the old fashion hand pump to make it GO!

Oil drum horses.  They also had "roping" and Daddy was showing us his skills from high school days.

Baby goat that the kiddos got to feed.

Bubba Love trying to kiss the cow.  She is such an animal lover!  Sweet girl.

Baby C, he turned 11 months this day... where has the time gone?  Wish he would stay this way!!

The kids enjoyed this "tractor" ride.  Daddy got out of it since he was too tall to fit, so I got to ride by default.  It was bumpy.

Oh, and we can't forget the pumpkins... or the homemade fudge!

*Note- my camera sucks ans is acting up ALOT lately.  But rumor has it that I may be getting a new one soon!

First Year of Blogging

I have officially been blogging for a year, but if you haven't noticed already... I have been missing for the last 5 months!!!
Where have I been?? 
Well for starters, my laptop took a dump in June and I was without a computer for over 8 weeks.  Then I just got out of my blogging groove. 
I'm back though:)
I find that when I blog, I make everyday a little more special (so I have something to write about).  And I remember all the little special daily moments that makes being a stay-at-home-mom seem worth all the hard times.  
Yay!  I am looking forward to sharing our lives with you all again!
