2008 Halloween

The girls went Trick-or-treating down Old Town Monrovia and later went to the Harvest Festival at our church. The pictures speak for themselves...

How did she do that????

Hannah and I were going to make cookies to take to the Harvest Festival at our church Halloween night. I put Hannah in charge of finding the sugar cookie recipe in my "found recipe" binder while I took care of a couple things.

When I returned I saw Hannah turning past the sugar cookie recipe at the same time I realized that there were no eggs in our refrigerator. Upon telling Hannah that we would have to wait until we could go to the store for eggs, she says, "but we have toddler eggs!" Not sure what she meant, we took a look in the refrigerator... where there was a bowl of hard boiled eggs and a container of scrambled eggs. I explained to Hannah that we needed uncooked eggs and that all we had were cooked eggs, so we couldn't make the cookies, because you need uncooked eggs to make cookies. "No mommy, there are cookies that don't need eggs." So I asked her to show me the recipe.

I have no idea how she knew that the recipe she found had no eggs... she wouldn't tell me... but there it was... Oatmeal Lace cookies. We only made those cookies once, and that was in May for her preschool Open House. It's an easy recipe and it contains NO eggs! Look for it on our recipes link...

Happy Anniversary!

Ryan surprised me with a return to the Magic Castle to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the night he proposed. We had never celebrated this date before, so I was surprised when I was given a card Sun morning that read, "Happy Anniversary". Ryan replaced the message inside to read, "One magical night ten years ago, you said yes..." It was a wonderfully, unexpected night out WITHOUT our girls. Later, Hannah wistfully said that she planned to go to the Magic Castle when she is grown up.

2008 10 Alyssa at the Pumpkin Patch

No one was at the pumpkin patch on Huntington Dr. this Friday morning, so Alyssa and mommy went to play in the pumpkins. It was a cooler morning, so it was easy to get into the fall spirit.
