When Elle wakes she says two things "daddy home? daddy gone?" and "where rea?" When she sees her big sister she yells "REAAA" with a bashful grin.
Reagan often tells me how thankful she is for "my twins." She more than often tells me how Ellie is her "best and only sister in the whole wide world." She knows that having a sister is a blessing.

TGIF y'all. It's been a long week full of runny noses, whininess and tons of amazing cuddle sessions. I am thankful for health and a week ahead with family in ND.
cinnamon applesauce ornaments
1 cup applesauce
1.5 cups ground cinnamon
Mix cinnamon into applesauce slowly until it forms a ball without sticking to your hands. Sprinkle cinnamon on counter and have child roll/press out dough with their hands. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters.
Poke a small hole in the top when a pen so you can string some twine through to hang on your tree.
Let dry for about 48 hours.

This amazing dish is perfect for an appetizer, Christmas party, football game or let's be real: I made it for dinner tonight. I'm in love.
Cheesy Bacon Sliced Potatoes
One bag of potatoes sliced thinly
One package of bacon, fried or oven baked (reserve 2-3 tbsp grease)
One bag of cheddar cheese
Ranch for dipping (always)
Preheat oven to 375. Thinly slice potatoes (about 1/4 inch slices). Boil potatoes for about 10 min (or until you can stick fork through but not overly done). Cover baking sheet with a very light layer of grease. Line sliced potatoes up. Brush potatoes with another couple tablespoons of grease. Layer with plenty of cheese and then bacon. Bake until melted and bubbly. Top with chopped green onions.

I should probably post about Halloween since I am considering walking downstairs to get my Christmas decorations out. It's a snowy wonderland up here today.

We had the privilege of cheering on Brad and Michelle (Chantel's younger sister) in this year's TC marathon. Mom and Steve joined us and we made a morning out of it. James (and the girls) saw a glimpse of what their obnoxious mother will be like at their future sporting events. I love a good competition.
