Happy Halloween

I think this is one of the funnest Halloweens I have ever had. Emmory looked so dang cute in her little angel costume. Her halo didn't fit too well, but everything else was so darling! We went Trick-or-Treating with her cousins here in Denver, and they had an absolute blast. Emmory felt like such a big girl holding her candy bucket all by her self, and she couldn't get the the next house fast enough! She would giggle at the candy she received, and be off to the next place to say trick or treat! The weather was great, which was a relief since we got over 2 feet of snow a couple of days prior. It was mostly melted by Saturday, which is typical Colorado. Now we are officially into the Holiday season, so I am sure we will be staying busy, busy, busy! Hope everyone had a great night too!

RECIPE: Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin Seeds
1 1/2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. garlic salt
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Bake for one hour at 275 degrees, stirring occasionally. Check on them as to not burn.

Sweet Pumpkin Seeds

3 Tbsp. Butter melted
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. salt
1 1/2-2 cups seeds

Mix all ingredients together. Spread out on a baking sheet. Bake at 275 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Take out and sprinkle on 2 Tbsp. sugar. Mix around and bake for another 10-15 minutes. Take out and add another 1 1/2 Tbsp. sugar. Mix around and bake for another 10-15 minutes. Take out and mix around, and bake for another 10-15 minutes. Check as to not burn. It is a lot of work for the hour, but they are really tasty so I find that it is worth it for once a year!!

It's Party Time!

Mostly just pictures here. Emmory just loved the snow and never wanted to come inside!
