Fall Food & Fun Weekend

We had another pretty laid back weekend. Terence & I worked the 2 year old nursery room at church. We had a little preview of what is to come I guess! Those kiddos were running circles around us and somehow I got diaper duty :P Thank goodness there were only four of them! I'm so excited that Halloween is only a couple weeks away. I love to pass out the candy to all the kids and visit with the neighbors. After church we went grocery shopping at Whole Foods.....
I love all the pumpkins that were outside
I made some banana bread this weekend
It was cream cheese banana bread and the cream cheese made if very moist!
Every week we make fruit baggies to take to work for breakfast. It usually consists of strawberries, cantaloupe, and grapes. It takes awhile to cut up all the fruit, but so much cheaper to do it yourself than buy the pre-made stuff!
Another fall goody!
Reese's DARK chocolate peanut butter cups :)
Speaking of peanut butter....
I love getting the fresh ground peanut butter at the store and dipping apples in it...it's so good!
Terence and I are enjoying our new Nespresso machine
We bought vanilla syrup from Starbucks for $6.95 and make our drinks at home.
It's a LOT cheaper this way too :)
My friend Beth Ann sent me this owl necklace
I LOVE IT!
Thank you so much it made my day :)
(excuse the carrot stain on my shirt!)
Connor loves sitting in high chairs at restaurants
and he loves chewing on napkins ha..ha..
He also LOVES riding in the shopping cart
Such a BIG BOY!
We also went to see our precious Granddaddy in the hospital this weekend
We love you so much Granddaddy and are praying for you every day!!!
Hope you all are having a good week too :)

You're actually making coffee at home instead of stopping at Starbucks? How are you able to survive on that? :) I get that it's cheaper, and still tastes the same... but still... you're missing out on the whole Starbucks experience. haha
