Jacob faces the cupcake!

More important than the pumpkin yogurt post below is this: Jacob turned a year old on October 22. Here is his attempt at his cake. If you watch the video in its entirety, you get a gold star. I will say, however, that he eventually ate the entire cupcake. It didn't stand a chance, really. Get ready for his first steps video...

Easy pumpkin yogurt!

Greek yogurt (or regular, but there are a lot of vitamins in Greek yogurt), Cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, and pumpkin puree. That's a Diet Dr Pepper in the background. Don't add that.
Mix them things together ( It calls for quite a bit of brown sugar, so we added very gradually so as not to overdue it, but it is the only source of sweetness)

Feast of All Saints!

All you holy men and women, pray for us! "I am pleased to wish all of you a happy All Saints Day! This wonderful feast, along with tomorrow’s commemoration of the faithful departed, speaks to us of the beauty of our faith and of the joy that awaits us in heaven with our loved ones who have fallen asleep in Christ. Let us therefore pray earnestly that we may all be joyfully united one day in the Father’s house. God bless you all!" - Pope Benedict XVI
