This was a fun little Halloween dinner we made last night. I had seen the idea in a magazine last year and forgot to try it. Chris came home and thought they were supposed to be little members of the Taliban though! These Mummy's probably fail on the nutritious dinner scale, but get an "A" for cuteness! It is the holiday season after all, right?!
To make them I just cut crescent roll dough into strips and wrapped it around turkey dogs. I used little sprinkles for eyes, I think they had used little pieces of olives, but I didn't have any. Follow the baking instructions on the crescent roll tube as far as temp. and time. Enjoy!
My friend Kristin and I attempted a late afternoon hike to Micah Mine with the kids. It was slow going with the little ones and we were worried about the sun going down (ummm...still not used to this fall daylight shortage!) so we turned back before we made it to our destination. Oh well, it was still a fun time with good company.

Connor and Cora (yes, another Cora!) collecting rocks. Connor's backpack weighed about as much as he did by the time we got back to the car!
My friend Kristin and her little guy, Peter. Peter and my Cora are only two days apart!
With lots of friends and family here to celebrate, I would say that Cora had a WONDERFUL first birthday. Chris's parents, Karen and Larry, and his sister, Heather, her hubby, Anthony, and their two girls, Sam and CeCe, came up from Arizona, and my parents and my brother Austin and his fiance Laura made it out as well. The weekend was jam-packed as usual...we like to squeeze as much fun in as possible!
As for Cora, we really can't believe she is one already. She is such a happy, sweet little girl. She loves music and animals, and of course, snuggling with her blankie and her babies. She walks around holding the furniture, but not quite on her own yet. I can tell she is going to be very cautious in this endeavor:) She loves to eat and play in the bath with Connor.
Here's to another amazing year, sweet baby girl!! We love you! The Birthday Girl!
Chris's Mom made the cake again. Wonderfully done Grammy!!
Testing out her very own cup-cake.
I think she's had enough!
Present time, but I think she preferred the tissue paper.
Most of the group went on a hike to Devil's Kitchen and the Lemon Squeezer's over in the Colorado National Monument in the morning before the party. Then after the party, we all went to Bananas Funpark for some bounce house and batting cage action.

Ummm.... who let him do this with my son and niece??!! Crazy!
My husband and I have been married for seven years. We have an amazing little boy who is three and a sweet baby girl, she just turned one. You will notice I refer to them as The Boy (or C) and Baby Girl in my blog:) We live in Western Colorado. My husband is a Physical Therapist and I get to be home with our kids. We thank God for His blessings on our lives every day!
