Yea, I am a little overly excited about this Monday. No particular reason why, just happy. Anna Claire is happy in her new school, Paxton is healthy ( I think it has something to do with us not having carpet in the new house ), Michael is excited about his new job, and I am excited about FALL! I am ready for mums, pumpkin pies, Yankee Candle's new fragrance Pumpkin Buttercream , high school football games, too cold for shorts and tanks but too warm for sweater weather!!!! Yay!! With this said.... I was given some pears last week and was wondering what I could do (semi healthy) with them. Sooooo.....
I peeled them, cut them, and simmered them in a little smart balance butter and Splenda.
Then I rolled them in reduced fat croissant rolls :) Okay, I said SEMI Healthy not 100%. They were sooo yummy! I think I want to try them with apples or peaches.
I think that the smell of pears cooking and the fact that Michael and I went to a high school football game Friday night sparked my "fall fever."
Oh and a bucket of Okra and Cucumbers that a friend of mine gave us :) Paxton loved playing with them, haha!
Speaking of Pax, he will have tubes put in his ears on Thursday! Maybe I should be sad that he will have a mini procedure... but I am not. I am thankful. I do not want him to have to go through the winter that we had last time.
And.... I know its about a month late BUT I have some pictures from Paxton's 2nd 1st birthday party ( ok that was confusing ) and yea, there is a lot :)
I told you there were a lot!
And I will leave you with this.... even though my morning started off like this:
It ended up with me thinking about this all day:
Have a great week!!!!
