Cameron - 10 months

I'm getting behind on things here, but hey, it's the holiday season so I'm cutting myself some slack.

Anyways, about ten days ago little Pork Chop passed the 10 month mark. I'm already finding myself planning his 1st birthday with a box of Kleenex beside me. I love having winter babies, but the time seems to fly by faster this time of year.

I'd say the big milestone this month is that Cameron has discovered the stairs and that he can crawl up them. We have 3 sets of stairs in this house and my once contently one-room confined baby is no more. It's good exercise for Momma though!

The other big milestone is that it appears he will be getting his two-front teeth for Christmas this year too.  One officially broke right on Thanksgiving, which helped him chow down.  He's been doing pretty well with teething and only moderately fussy thankfully.

Little man is eating lots of regular foods, but I'm finding that he has a little bit more of a particular pallet than big brother. So far broccoli and peas aren't favorites unless mixed with something else. I blame Daddy for this trait. He doesn't seem to interested in the sippy cup either but I'm thinking we are going to have to just bite the bullet and start kicking that bottle to the curb soon, but there is still some time for that.

He adores bath time, and I mean ADORES it! He loves hearing his screeching voice echo and having battles with Alex over who can do it the loudest. Fun times.

We are pretty busy this month now with Thanksgiving kicking off our holiday and birthday festivities that go all the way until Cameron turns 1.

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".
