4 Years

Happy Anniversary to Jack & I. 4 years ago today we got married! Here is to many more years<3 font="">

Pumpkin Pie crossiants

I love Pinterest. I have found some great recipes on there. I hosted book club this past week and was looking for some fall recipes. I made a nice warm crockpot chicken salsa. For dessert I wanted something with pumpkin. I cruised around on Pinterest. I discovered pumpkin pie croissants.


And super easy too!

Oven to 375 degrees

I made a lot of the filling, so you can cut the recipe in 1/2. I used it for both a pumpkin pie dip and I made 16 croissants. I looked at the ingredients and then made my own concoction. It was yummy.


  • 1 can pumpkin
    2 cups powdered sugar
    1 package cream cheese
    Dash of vanilla extract
    1 tsp cinnamon
    Dash of ginger
    Dash of cloves
    Dash of nutmeg 
  • Sugar & Spice
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie
  1. Unroll each crescent roll.
  2. Beat together the cream cheese, canned pumpkin, vanilla and spices together.
  3. Spread about 1 - 1 1/2 teaspoons of filling over each crescent roll.
  4. Roll up, starting with the wider end.
  5. Stir together the additional sugar and pumpkin pie spice.
  6. Roll each pumpkin pie croissant in the sugar/spice mixture and place on baking sheet.
  7. Bake at *375 for 11-12 minutes until lightly browned and baked through.

So Big

When did my baby get so big?  I can't believe he is 14 months old. He is such a little person right now with a big personality. He is walking, babbling, seeing how far he can push my buttons. What an awesome little dude he is. It is funny how this time last year I was trying to figure out how to survive and sleep, and now I am chasing around a little boy. It is funny how time fast forwards.

He is currently getting his 5th tooth, and he is finally starting to pick things up with his hands and feed himself. Its funny the things you find exciting. Oh how being a parent has changed my way of thinking.
