I'M BAAAACK!
My break was pretty sweet. Almost as sweet as my caramel apple pie....


...but not quite. I got so much done the last few days. It really was nice! I'm gonna try to get to all my bloggin buddies blogs in the next few days, but, uh, there are 110 posts to read! I'm probably not going to get to read each and every post, but I'll do my best!

The rodeo was great! Little Bug is all cowboy! When we got there they gave him a hat and he didn't take it off the entire night. The volunteers tried to take it off to put his medal on, but he cried. So, I carried the medal and he kept his hat on. The best part was seeing the grin when he got on the horse. He is getting his sports physical this week to get the doctors "okay" for the horseback riding therapy. It's hard to explain what happens to my little boy when he gets on a horse. It's amazing. The confidence and joy on his face just about brought me to tears. Love it!


Of course, now that I am back, I have to have a new template. Is it Halloween-y enough? I've got some other Halloween "looks" that I will debut throughout the month! Enjoy the day!

FIRST! Only because it's 2 in the morning and everyone's asleep.
I love the keys!
Everyday I wake up and think, "Today, I will make pie" and I never do.
I'll just have to go to your blog and look at your pie I guess.

Glad you're back. (By the way, that pie looks DELICIOUS!!!

I'm so glad Little Bug enjoyed the rodeo. Love the hat. He looks so happy on the horse. (Hope the physical goes well)

SO FUN!
And you'll post that pie recipe, right? It looks SO good!!

I love your new template. Do you make them yourself, or are you a creative googler?

I want the recipe for your pie. Please?.....

I'm so glad it was such a positive experience for him - hooray! Also glad you're back, and soooo want the recipe for that pie. Not that I ever bake pie, but as least having the recipe would give me the hope of a pie. Does that make sense? ~hugs~

welcome back!
i don't know which is sweeter... that apple caramel pie (YUM!) or your little boy with his hat?

Ok Melissa... that pie looks insanely delicious! I love baking! And I have to be honest, seeing your little guy on that horse brought tears to my eyes too. The picture of him riding the horse, even though it isn't a close up pic... you can see the grin on his face from ear to ear! I love it!
