1/2 Cup heavy whipping cream
2/3 Cup parm
Dried parsley flakes
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 lb bacon fried and crumbled*
1/2 lb pasta
Cooked peas - to taste
*On super lazy days (which are most days) I use pre cooked bacon, microwave it and rip it up
Boil water and cook pasta according to directions. Drain
While pasta is cooking add first six ingredients in a bowl and beat until smooth.
Prepare bacon and peas and set aside.
While the pasta is still warm pour mixture over the top of it. Add bacon and peas,stir over low heat until heated through.
That's it. Enjoy!

My husband is 27 today. He's at work, as usual. We celebrated last weekend by leaving the girls with my Mom and getting a hotel room downtown. It was a blast!
Davin turning 27 has me fearing how soon I'll be 30. Just two and half years...
I'm not sure why turning 30 gives me the creeps. Maybe because I thought I'd feel like an adult by now? Maybe I thought we'd be financially stable, home owners, less self conscious? I don't know. I just know I'm dreading the day.
Here is a list of things I'd like to do before I turn 30:
1. Own a home.
2. Lose weight and keep it off.
3. Learn to cook a better variety of foods.
4. Celebrate Davin getting a full time fire job.
5. Take my girls to Disneyland.
6. Have a comfortable savings account.
7. Learn something new (guitar? Ballroom?)
8. Travel with my Mom.
9. Pierce my nose (again).
10. Be myself, and still be loved.
11. Tell Davin I love him more often.
12. Find my style.
13. Make a Mala necklace.
14. Read more classics.
15. Pay off the cars.
I'm sure I could add to this list continually, but I'll leave it here for now.
Wish me luck!

What a fun month!
We went to the pumpkin patch as a family on one of Davin's rare days off. Ava loved the straw maze and picking out "princess" pumpkins. Sundae loved riding in the cart with her sister. I loved having Davin with us and the warm weather.
We later went back with my Mom, which always makes for happy grandkids.
We painted lots of pumpkins! Ava could do this all day. Brit and I both did jack Skellington. Mines on the left. My moms pirate is pretty hard core. Ava wasn't finished so her pumpkin didn't get included.
This year for Halloween Ava was Princess Sofia from the Disney channel. She had her first ever school program. Davin, my Mom and Ted were all able to come. Ava loved singing her songs for us.
Sundae was an adorable red headed ghost. She's walking now.
Samantha turned 8 in October and me and my girls got to go give her a gift and hang out with her family for awhile. Always fun. I love, love, love how close by they live and that I'm able to see them often.
Now on to November!

Thanks to our amazing parents, Davin and I were able to get away alone for a few days. We headed to Disneyland!
I am a true Disneyland lover and after three days of beautiful weather and no lines, Davin has joined me in my enthusiasm for this magical place. We can't wait to take our kids!
Sundae is a year old!
She's a pro crawler, but isn't quite walking. She'll take a few steps, then sit down and crawl away.
She isn't talking yet, but she does a lot of pointing and grunting and screaming. She certainly knows how to communicate! She also points and the animals on Grandpas walls (antelope, moose, fish...) and growls. No one taught her this, it's pretty cute!
She's a climber. Every time I turn around she's climbed onto the couch, bed, toilet, etc. It's exhausting! She's a stubborn and fearless little girl!
Happy birthday Sunny Baby!

It's hard to believe she's already three!
Three facts about Ava:
She's a total girl. She loves shopping and shoes and dress up.
She's always talking. Sometimes I can't hear myself think! She says pretty adorable things though, such as; "My hair is crazy town!" and "I'm freezing my pants off!".
She loves her little sister. A lot. I'm constantly having to tell her to back up or be soft. She just wants to show her sister everything!
I love this girl so much!
