Cameron - 9 months

 Squeal!!!! This is my favorite age for babies!  To clarify, I think any age under 12 mos. is a baby, they leap into toddler-hood the minute they smash that cake it seems.

19.5 lbs
29 1/4 inches

Anyways, this is age is adorable.  Cameron is fully mobile now and apparently has places to because he is always on the move.  He loves that he can now "chase" after his big brother, and Brutus.  Alex loves it just as much.  He's standing on anything that he can, but I'm weary to say he'll be an early walker since Alex was kinda late.

We've been pretty busy the last month, most notably a trip to Pittsburgh for a wedding (Scott's cousin, Andrew).  This was fun because it was our 6th wedding anniversary and what a great way to spend it watching two other people commit their love to one another and visit with family.

Our other getaway was to <a href="" target="_blank">Kalahari</a>.  Cameron is quiet the water bug and Scott thought it would be great to get away and have to boys play in the water.  If you've never been, it is one of my favorite places and I love that it is in Ohio.

Other than that we've been enjoying the fall, my favorite season, although it is too short.

Stay tuned for Cameron's 9 month professional pictures and a Halloween post!

I realized I never updated my Halloween Pictures.

My little guys were just adorable this Halloween and boy did they haul in the treats.

Alex dressed up as Spider Man for trick-or-treating at preschool and had a great time going around the classrooms getting goodies.

For actual trick-or-treating, Alex went as a fireman and Cameron went as his faithful companion, a dalmatian.  I have to pat myself on the back for decorating the wagon up as a fire truck. 

I liked getting into the spirit of the season.  It is such a let down when the trick-or-treaters that do come around have no costumes or manners :(

Good thing I got this up before the next holiday!

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken

I love spicy Buffalo Chicken and this tasty recipe was a snap to make.

I found this on Pinterest originating from here but below is my own variation and recommendations.

3-4 Chicken Breasts (I used fresh)
Franks Red Hot Sauce (regular or buffalo)
Dried Ranch Dressing Mix
2-3 tbsp. butter

Place Chicken in Slow Cooker
Pour approx. 1/2 bottle of sauce on top
1/4 to 1/2 of the dressing mix.  (I used 1/2 and found it to be too salty)

Cook on low for 6-8 hours

Shred up the chicken, add more sauce or a little water if necessary, but the chicken will shred up perfectly.
Put butter on top for about 15 more minutes, stir and then serve

**I think adding a little cream cheese to this recipe also might be a nice addition, but I'd melt that in the slow cooker prior to adding the chicken**

This is so yummy and very versatile to serve with anything.  I especially love it mixed in a cool salad with a little ranch dressing.  With the Super Bowl coming up too this would be a…

Pirate Party Game - Ring Toss

Why didn't I think of this?!  I came across this from Hostess with the Mostess site, my go-to party planning inspiration blog.  What an awesome game and pretty inexpensive if you were a savvy shopper and picked up the pirate hooks for $1 at Target along with some swim diving rings also in the $1 spot.

This would've been perfect for Alex's 4th Birthday Pirate Party where we played "Pin the Hook on Captain Hook".
