Little Men, Volume 2

Most of you probably don't know but I have the most fantastic sister in the whole world.
I really would be lost without her.
She has been a photography assistant for the past 5 years, and is working on breaking out on her own.
I'm so proud of her and I hope that she is able to accomplish all of her dreams.

A few weeks ago both my cousins had their baby boys. 
The same boys we threw this baby shower for back in July.
They live within minutes of each other, so my sister drove up there for the day to take their pictures.
I just love how they turned out. 
Sweet, precious boys.

The One Where I Judge

I try really hard not to judge parents. 
I know one day I will be pulling my hair out and doing just about anything I can to 
please/calm/make my kid eat and doing things I said I would never do.
But, this is where I draw the line, and I judge the hell out of parents.

Ordering your 10 month old a sprite.

Changing your child's diaper at the booth, instead of the restroom that is 10 steps away.

Ordering your 7 year old a bowl of shredded cheese as her meal.

Allowing your 2 year old to eat an entire adult portion dessert, by themself. 

Those are just a few of my favorites.
I'm sure I have several more I could add, I just can't think of any right now.

My Favorite Cookies

Friday night I had the itch to bake something. 
Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies sounded like a good choice. 
These are my all time favorite cookies.
The dough is fantastic. Even better than regular chocolate chip cookie dough.
I don't know where this recipe came from, my mom has had it forever, so don't bother asking. 
Here is what you are going to need.

A makes everything better and more enjoyable. 
On to the actual ingredients...

2 cups flour
1 cup quick oats
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 c sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup chocolate chips (or the whole bag if you are me)

Pre-heat the oven to 350 
Mix butter, sugars, egg and vanilla.
Slowly add and alternate between pumpkin and dry ingredients. 
Continue mixing.
Add chocolate chips.
Bake for about 14 minutes.

Try not to inhale all of them at once.

Still Waiting

Travis has his interview a little over a week ago,
and we have yet to hear anything since.
It's driving me nuts. 
He was asked during his interview if we were open to relocating. 
We are insane and said yes. 
Who knows, we could be moving again much sooner than we though.
We did receive more information about the Arkansas location,
and there is NO way it's going to happen. 
We would be in the middle of nowhere.
When I looked up a RE through our insurance, there wasn't one within 100 miles.
 That sealed the deal for us. 

We know there are two positions available in Houston,
one in an area that from what I have seen online, looks awesome.
Trav's area director told him he sent his information to other markets,
but we have no idea what markets those are, and if they include Houston. 
So, we are just sitting here waiting to hear something. Anything. 
I don't exactly "wait" well.
Especially when it involves a pay raise. 
A rather substantial one. 
One of these days I will learn I can't control everything,
and I've got to just sit back and know things will happen at the right time.
