I could have sworn school just started, and now it's Thanksgiving. I am not sure where the time goes, but it just goes faster and faster every year! That's why it's so important to stop and reflect, and to realize how thankful we are for everything we have. I am so thankful for my family, and all my wonderful friends. I hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

More recipe book photos!

Recipe Book Class

We survived the recipe book class! We really think we need t-shirts that say that! It was such a great class, but very intense. We all love our recipe books, however, so it was well worth it! Speaking of recipes, I recently tasted these great pumpkin muffins that my sister-in-law made and had to have the recipe. I am sharing it with you all because they are so great! You must give them a try!

3 C Flour

2 C Sugar

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp ground cloves

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 16oz can pumpkin

2/3 C oil

3 eggs, slightly beaten

Mix dry ingredients. Add remaining ingredients until well blended. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans or muffin pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy!

Fall is definitely my favorite time of year! I really wasn't ready for Halloween to be over, so I guess that's why I haven't updated the blog in so long. Just wanted to write a quick note about my boys' football season. Damon's team went undefeated and Ryan's team went 6-2, and made it to the semi-finals game. I am so proud of both of them! Basketball is next! Can't wait!
