Daddy Does It

Tonight is one of those nights that I think Daddy would run away if he could.  Nothing in particular has gone wrong; it is just one of those days I can tell he wishes he could escape the pressure of it all.  One kid is a cranky mess, one is wound up and he's battling a killer headache after working all day.

So I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to tell the blogosphere how much I love him and appreciate him. Of course I do my best to always let him know it too. My husband helps out so much with things and I truly appreciate it.  I try to stress to him that I don't need his help, but in reality he makes this parenting gig so much more bearable and enjoyable.

Here are some of his amazing accomplishments:

  • He has washed 99% of the bottles since our first baby
  • He always makes me a hot cup of coffee and it is waiting in my car for me every morning
  • He does the morning routine of getting the kids ready during the week and weekend
  • He's never afraid to lift a finger to help around the house
  • He has gotten on board with cloth diapering
  • He rubs my back, nearly every night.  Score for me!
  • Helps out with bath duties for the kids
  • Alex wrote all about him on his star student poster at preschool "Daddy is my best friend"
Am I spoiled or what?!  There are so many more but those are a few highlights.

Head on over to Growing Up Geeky to see what other daddy's are doing out there.

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".
