Fall football and a sweet treat

We watched football on Saturday again.  Both boys played at the same time right next to each other.  It was so nice to be able to get it done at the same time and be able to watch both of them.  Cody started as the quarter back.  He did awesome almost scoring two touchdowns.  He was tackled the first time because he turned to look to make sure his dad and grandma were watching him.  The second time, the other kid was just too fast.  He caught Cody at the one yard line and then the lines changed so Cody didn't get to run the ball again.  He was grinning from ear to ear though, so proud of him.

In the huddle.  #13, that's my boy.

Cody the quarter back, running the football.  See the bright orange mouth guard?  He's grinning away.

If you have never gone to watch a youth football game, you really should.  The energy and excitement from these kids is so much fun.  The number of people that come out to the fields on a Saturday is just unreal.  There are hundreds of people out there cheering these boys on.  It's a lot of fun.

I made a new treat this weekend.  It was an easy one.  The hardest part was unwrapping all of the rolos.

I baked these for about 12 minutes at 250 degrees.  You want to melt them enough to be able to easily do the step.

Press the reeses pieces into the rolos carefully.  If you bump your finger into the rolo candy, just lick it.  It will not affect the outcome of these super delicious treats at all, promise!

Next I placed them in the fridge to firm up a bit so I could place them in a container.  Before I placed them in the container, I took a picture of a cute little dish full....just for you!

The container I moved all of these little treats to, it's already gone through the dishwasher and been put away.  That's how long these babies lasted.  It is pretty hard to let a little salted pretzel, caramel, peanut butter and chocolate sit there and stare at you.  They are amazing!  Perfect fall colors too.

There is a brand new member to our family.  Meet Vince.

Dane's sister and husband got him last week.  It's he adorable?  They now have a puppy to love.  In one month they will move into their new house and a month after that, they will welcome a brand new baby boy.  Do you think they will be busy?  I think so!

Now who's ready for Halloween?

Nite! Pin It
