#1 - just because it is for a CAMERA
#2 - just because it's my anniversary and I deserve something nice from the Pioneer Woman. I mean, after all, I'm probably her biggest fan, what with our love/hate relationship and all!
#3 - and heck, just because I wanted to!
Trying to win something in the Tundra,

And look at the amazing job we did!
HA! Actually, I crack myself up! I only did this, because these are some good family friends of ours and we can! We have such a good time with them, and I'm glad we had a chance to give them some really good family shots, especailly with 4 boys, ages 19-11 or so...
Anyway, I just finished up a couple of Seniors and just working on two more and then I'll be all caught up and can start working on the Gabe man's pictures! We did finally get to celebrate his birthday with a "Pumpkin Fest" the other night and we have a little video, so I'll get that posted for you as soon as I rescue my other camera out of Sam's car. He's always taking it to get duck hunting pictures - *GAG* ! Anyway, just wanted to send out a little post and let you know we are still enjoying the Fall!
Getting ready to go out and celebrate our 5th year anniversary a day early since Sam has an overnighter tomorrow night!

Dissolve 1 pkg. yeast in 1/2 cup warm water.
Add 2 Tbls. Molasses
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 cup mashed buttercup squash
2 cups flour
Add 1 more cup flour
(if using a kitchen aid, switch to dough hook now.)
"Knead" for approx. 5 min. adding additional flour 1/4 cup at a time until no longer sticky.
Place dough in greased bowl and rise for approx. 1 hour until doubled.
Then punch down and shape into loaf, place in greased loaf pan and let rise for another hour.
Then bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes!
(makes 1 loaf)
I love this recipe because it's so fall-ish. You can see that the bread turns out kind of orange and it's great with just butter or add pumpkin butter. You can use it for toast, sandwhiches or just sliced right off the loaf. I can't keep this around the house. We have a cut loaf in the fridge and Sam made two more today and he already cut one of the new ones! Go figure!
It's really easy to make. I hope you enjoy it! If you try it!!!
Bakin' it up in the Tundra,

So we picked up our Johnny Carino's to-go and headed back home to load on the canoe! It was the perfect fall evening. All day it had been around 80 degrees and what a wonderful way to end up the evening. Didn't get too many pictures, but I am going to invite you along on our date, via video!
It was such a beautiful evening!
And Sam suprised me with a delicious dessert!
This is how it looked when we finished up!
Thanks for the awesome date, Love of my life. Thanks for watching the Gabe man, Mike and Jen.
Eating up every minute of this gorgeous fall in the Tundra,

Of course, Gabe was in the middle of it!

Squeezing in a couple more sessions before the Tundra has us holed up for the winter! So keep on the look out for more viewing pleasure....
I hear the little man up and awake from his nap, so I'd better go check on him!
Working hard in the Tundra,

And here is more bath time fun, except Gabe did just like kids do - smiling and laughing and talking and then as soon as the camera goes on.......well...... boring!!!!
And here we have my main squeeze, Sam the Man!!! Today is our Papa's Pumpkin Patch Potluck time-o-fun! So here's my cowboy, all ready and dressed to lead the games and have a blast! How about that - it hasn't even started yet, and you see him here, first!!! By the way, that's our pond in the background, Aunt Gayle. Looking a bit shabby right now but we like it!!!
Well, I'm making a chicken casserole and Mom's Bread pudding. As soon as that comes out, I'll get you the recipe, because I hate bread pudding, but this, why this would even make the Pioneer Woman's heart beat a little faster! (Even though it doesn't call for butter, I'm sure you could throw a bit on the side!!!)
Livin' up the Fall in the Tundra,
