I wanted to share some of our Halloween fun, even though it is already another holiday. Maybe I will share Thanksgiving stuff on Christmas, haha.
So, here we are! We made it to one year. Knowing that there is a lot going on this month, I can pretty much guarantee the Chiplet’s one year pictures will have to be shared in an upcoming post instead, but I still wanted to post about this milestone. I finally have two kids who aren’t “babies” even though they kind of still are.
I haven’t been making as many new savory dishes recently, but have been making new baking recipes to try out. After making the World Peace cookies that I just shared, I made other cookie recipes, including this bar you see below.
Last month K had to do a work trip. Since I knew about it ahead of time I asked my dad and M if they wanted to come hang with me and the kiddos to help out. Sure enough, they were able to come and we got almost a week with them! It was great. One of the nights they wanted to make matzo ball soup using M’s family recipe. The Fudgelet was super excited to help make the matzo balls. They started the soup in the morning and then after the Fudgelet had school, they made the balls. He couldn’t roll them into balls but did the scooping and filling. Earlier in the day I had the realization that I could contribute, too! I had made challah bread the previous month and it made two loaves, so I had frozen one. This was the perfect time to pull it out and share.
So, in Chiplet news, there has been some great news and much progress! I am getting a little anxious trying to plan for his birthday. I’m trying to figure out what kind of party I will do since I want to do something…but it is tricky since many of our friends have a lot going on this time of year. So, we shall see…but let me update you on what he has been doing.
I wanted to start this post because sometimes I go archive digging and it is tricky to remember which iteration of a recipe is my all-time favorite. For some categories I don’t have a favorite but for some, I do, and I wanted a convenient spot to find them.
Let me start by saying I spent much of this last month feeling anxious about the Chiplet. I know every kid is different but it is hard not to compare the brothers, or even with the milestones you see online. But, thankfully, I am feeling a bit better about things and the Chiplet is exactly the same level of happy that he has been his whole life.
