Yummy Oreo Truffles!!

I found a really yummy recipe for oreo truffles on Bakerellas blog and just had to try them. Bobby had a work party this week and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity. Let me tell you they are to die for. So yummy!! And so easy too. I decided to use mint oreos instead of plain ones and I think it was a good choice. So all you do is smash 22 cookies out of your package with the middle and all. Smash another 10 without the middle. Add an 8 oz package of cream cheese. Mix well. Roll into balls (they are yummy just like that) I would suggest freezing them for at least twenty mins so they dont fall apart in the next step. Then I dipped them in melted white chocolate. Let them dry and then I melted some milk chocolate, put in the corner of a ziploc back, cut the tip and added to the top for looks and taste.(you can never have enough chocolate:) Bobby is not really a chocolate fan but I kept catching him out of the corner of my eye stealing them off the platter. Oh and after you are done you can refrigerate or freeze them. If theres any left. and if you have any cookies left they make for a great photo shoot!!:) ENJOY!!

My not so little big boy!!

No your eyes do not decieve you. My barely seven month old baby is standing in his crib and walking behind a walker. Its a sitting walker that changes into a walk behind. He has been pulling himself up to our couch and walking along it, So Bobby got the bright idea to change the walker over and see if he could walk behind it, (much to my dismay) and he can. A little slow right now but it wont be long til hes at full speed. I really dont want him to grow up this fast. He shouldnt even be crawling let alone pulling himself up and walking along things. He is doing things even faster than Jarrin did. At this rate the next kid will be crawling at 3 months and walking by 5. The last picture is a funny one from the other day, he had a cheerio stuck to his forehead for like 20 mins. He didnt even know it was there.

Another give away and a late post.....

About a month agao we went to Naschitti New Mexico (dont say that one wrong) to see my brother Skyler and his wife Kassie. They live in Texas and we only get to see them once a year whhen they come for Christmas. My Dads family does a cattle sale there every year for the people there. It was only a two and a half hour drive so we decided to take an overnight trip to see them. They hadnt met Mason yet and Jarrin has gotten so big since last December. It was so cold there. The wind was awful and Jarrin hates the wind. I do too but he crys if he has to be in the wind. My parents let all four of us stay in their living quarters trailer with them (thanks Mom and Dad). the boys really like to sleep at thier own house so it was a long night. Good thing my parents brought thier earplugs. It sounds like I am complaining but I am so glad I got to see Skyler and Kassie. We sure do miss them and wished they lived closer. See you guys soon. Love Ya!! Heres some pictures of the fun. I tried to get a picture of my mom and she wouldnt let me.


Its time for another GIVE AWAY!! Go take a look at my other blog and leave me a comment so you can be entered in the drawaing!! Good luck!!

Halloween and My favorite seven month old little boy!!

We had alot of fun this year for Halloween. We went to a Trunk or' Treat, carved pumpkins twice, went to a Halloween/Birthday party and took the boys Trick or Treating. Jarrin was a Skunk (Bobby was trying to convince me to let him make Jarrin a road kill skunk. Sorry Babe, maybe next year) and Mason was a Puppy, complete with a bone on his costume that he loved to chew on. Jarrin loved going to peoples doors, flashing his oh-so-cute smile and getting free candy. He wasnt so sure about the scary part of Halloween though. Bobbys brother had a little haunted house set up in thier garage that the Trick or Treaters had to walk through to get candy and he wanted absolutley nothing to do with it. Other than that I think He has become a big fan of the "free candy holiday." Trunk or Treat
My three handsome boys Halloween night


I honestly can not believe how fast my little boy is growing up. Time goes by so fast. Before I know it he will be graduating. This sweet little boy makes my heart skip a beat everytime he flashes his two toothed grin at me. He is such a good baby and has such a sweet spirit. I love to watch him sleep. He is so tolerent of his big brother who can be a little rough when they are playing. But I can tell already that they are going to be great friends. The other morning Jarrin was laying on the floor with his pillow watching cartoons and Mason crawled over to him pulled his hair and then gave him a slobbery kiss. Gotta love Brotherly love. We love you so much Mason!! (but quit growing so fast)

Things Mason has learned or can do since last month:

  • He can crawl like nobodys business ( hes super fast)
  • He can pull himself up on funiture
  • He can say Papa
  • He has cut 4 more teeth (all on the top)
  • Likes to wrestle with Jarrin
  • Wont nurse ( yup I guess he decided hes done)
  • Turns on his own night light music player in his crib
  • Loves Honey Teddy grahams
  • Has found a very loud screaming and yelling voice

Sleeping with his favorite "taggie" that Hallie made him

He is never stingie with his slober kisses for Momma

I love those soft chubby baby cheeks

This grin could melt anyones heart
