Toddler Talk Thursday

This weeks Toddler Talk Thursday topic is Happy Halloween!

I wasn't sure that I would be able to get H. B. Nanna into her Halloween costume.  She picked it out.  When it arrived in the mail, she wanted to touch it, hold it and wear the hat.  She did not want to wear the costume.  I managed to get her into it only to have that end in a horrific screaming fit.

We've been talking about Trick or Treating and that in order to do that, you have to wear a costume. She seems to understand and seems excited.

Last night there was a big Halloween parade that I wanted to take her to.  She asked if she could wear her Halloween dress.  Why of course!!

When we came home from the parade she asked if she could sleep in her Halloween dress.
Fingers crossed she wants to wear it again for Halloween.

We are about 6 weeks from our Disney trip and each day I get more and more excited. It's been 10 years since I was last there but I have never been this time of year.

I spend lots of time searching Etsy for the perfect 1st Disney shirt for H.B.Nanna and I really am having a hard time narrowing it down. 

Something simple like this from TheTutuFairy

I like the mouse head with an initial from mylittlegacies

I could always take the DIY approach and buy this from SoxThatRock

But I also like this from AdrienneN

I could go on and on....why is this decision so hard??? :)

Wordless Wednesday

The best place to watch the parade is on Daddy's shoulders!

Tasty Tuesday

I've really been having some luck with some new recipes I've tried lately. I've had some friends request the recipes so I thought I would share them all here for those who are interested.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Pasta

1 lb chicken breast, chopped

1 (11 1/2 ounce) can of cream of chicken soup

1/2 cup hot sauce for buffalo wings

6 ounces mozzarella cheese or cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1 1/2 cups)

1/2 cup blue cheese salad dressing

1 1/2 cups sour cream

3 cups penne, uncooked

Season chicken salt and pepper and put it in the slow cooker. Add the chicken soup and hot sauce and stir.
Cook on LOW 4-6 hours or HIGH 2-3. Stir in cheeses, salad dressing and sour cream and cook for another 30 minutes. 
Boil pasta according to package instructions, drain well and add to the chicken sauce mixture. Stir well and serve!

The left overs are great the next day with crusty bread!

{I can't take credit for creating this recipe.  I got it from my friend Alison :)}

31 is the new 6...

...according to H.B.Nanna.

This morning I was awoken by lots of hugs, kisses and Happy Birthday's.

Stephen asked H.B.Nanna how old she thought Mommy was.

So she asked me.

I said 29.

Yep, this is the third anniversary of my 29th birthday.

H.B.Nanna knows 30 comes after 29.  She was so excited to tell me that next I will be 30.

What comes next, H.B.Nanna?
