Friday - The Kids Come For the Weekend

The first fun thing I did friday was bake Justin his favorite cookie- Triple Peanut Bars. Let's face it, they are a favorite of all of ours.

Really simple: take a roll of store-bought peanut butter cookie dough and with gloved or floured hands, press out onto a jelly roll pan sprayed with PAM. Top with 12 oz of semisweet chocolate chips then drizzle a can of sweetened condensed milk on top. Cover evening with 10 oz of peanut butter chips and 1 1/2 cups dry roasted peanuts.
Place in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes until edges are crispy and they look like above.

When cool, spread with a mixture of 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 cup peanut butter and 1 tablespoon milk. Keep adding milk, a little at a time, until right consistency to frost (which I prefer the look and taste of), or make it thinner and drizzle on top of cookies. Cut into bars.

Here I am with Jacob. I could just eat him up!

Justin pumkinlina. He brought it home from school and has to care for it and then create an activity for it to do. I believe he said he was going to have it fly around the classroom on a plane or something. I hope they take video!

Jacob a.k.a. Skeleton Boy. He even glowed in the dark!

Justin showing me his magic trick; a pencil staying in his hand without holding on to it. I think I may have to find a magic kit for him for Christmas.

Jacob in his Johnny Jump-Up.

Jacob teething oin his Johnny Jump-Up. He has 2 front teeth coming in!

Shawn, Theresa, David, John

I made a pot roast dinner. Actually I cooked 2 pot roasts and there is only enough leftover for David and I to have one more meal. That made me smile.

Shawn and Theresa.

Jen brought us Halloween labels for bottles of wine. This turned out dark, but the label on the wine bottle says 'Vampire Blood."

JAcob and his Daddy.

Jacob is starting to use a sippy type cup, but it is a cross between a bottle nipple and a sippy cup. He gnaws on it alot and he also tries to drink water from it. I have to admit it just throws me how fast he is growing up.

I know! I had one for Jen. She jumped for hours in that thing. Jacob loves it too. However he has a newer type one at home that has it's own stand and makes music and lights go on when you jump.
