pumpkin rice krispie treats

I’ve seen multiple versions of these fun little pumpkin rice krispie treats popping up all over Pinterest recently. My Fall Board is starting to fill up with all thing apple and pumpkin.  I have a great fondness for marshmallow, so the old-fashioned rice krispie treats have always been one of my favorite snacks. Henry just learned about mixing red and yellow to make orange, so I thought this would be a good way to reinforce that lesson and enjoy some time together in the kitchen.

apple dump cake

That’s right. You read the title correctly. CROCKPOT Apple Cinnamon Dump Cake. You only need five ingredients and a slow cooker to make this dessert happen! Pumpkin dump cake was one of the very first things I tried when I discovered Pinterest. I don’t know how I grew up in a Baptist church with regular potlucks and never heard of dump cakes! They are so easy to make and they taste delicious! I put these ingredients together the other night for dessert and it. was. awesome. Really.

My brother and sister-in-law are in escrow for their first house. Right now they live in the parsonage behind the church, but it’s small and they are ready to become home owners. They found a really nice house on the same side of town and we are so excited for them to move in soon! To celebrate with them, I picked up a few items and put together a fun “gift basket” as a housewarming gift. So, Jamie Rench, stop reading right now. Don’t scroll down the page. I mean it! You don’t want to spoil the surprise, do you? :) I’ll give you a moment to click away.

OK, if your name is NOT “Jamie Rench” please feel free to read on!

bathroom routines for kids

Our youngest just turned 3, and we are still dealing with the whole potty training thing. Yay me. He’s definitely getting better, and I’m sure he’ll have it down soon enough, but I feel like we spend a LOT of time in the bathroom!

I think I’m in a hurry to get this over with because when he’s done, I’m done with diapers and training pants forever!!! I can’t wait for that freedom! Our oldest son is 9, but because of his autism, we sometimes still deal with bathroom issues, so I decided to create a visual to hang up over the toilet to remind the boys of their bathroom routines.

lasagna soup

 

I’ve made this lasagna soup twice now, and it still doesn’t look all that pretty. But the recipe is so easy and tastes so great, I decided to share it with you anyway. Besides, I keep changing things so much, if I don’t post something, it won’t resemble a “recipe” at all anymore! :)
