Caroline is 3!

Here are a couple of pictures from Caroline's 3rd birthday. It was about 6 weeks ago, so I'm doing better than last year in posting! This year the theme was "Caroline is turning 3, Come and celebrate with me!" Ok, not really a great theme, but basically I got to do whatever I wanted...and that was awesome.
We had the party at our house this year. In the past it has been at my MILs house. Since our house is much smaller we only had our immediate families in attendance.

Browned Butter Banana Bundt {Foodie Friday}

The secret to the beauty of this bundt is the glaze. It can be used with any banana bread, and let's be honest, it would be a sin not to. Anything with browned butter is destined to be a winner.

Fall Family Photos

Back in October, I had my friend Kim of Kimberly Harris Photography take some new family photos taken. We really haven't had any nice pictures taken since Caroline turned one. Even then the pictures were mostly of her and not family photos. We also got some maternity pictures taken. I am so glad now, because these are the only pictures I really have of my baby bump.

Thank you, Kim! I think these are spectacular!

Strawberry Scones {Foodie Friday}

Now. as previously stated, I had lots of leftover strawberries from Caroline's birthday party. These were a perfect way to use some of them up. These scones were delicious. They probably would have been good even if they had nothing in them. I saw that many people had made them with blueberries, raspberries, and many other kinds of fruit, so you can use whatever you happen to have on hand.

The Conleys {My Photography}

This is my aunt, uncle and cousins. Pretty good looking folks, don't you think?
They asked me to take some pictures for their Christmas card, so we did! They even brought changes of clothes and props to Thanksgiving so we could do this. I love that! Here are a couple of my favorites.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Tart {Foodie Friday}

I know it's not strawberry season, but after Caroline's party I found myself with lots of leftover strawberries. So i thought to myself, "Self, what can I do with all these leftover strawberries?" The answer of course was to make a strawberry cream cheese tart--because next to chocolate and peanut butter, strawberries and cream cheese is like the best darn thing ever. The only problem with this tart is that it is too small. I only got one piece and it was not enough. Oh wait. There are still more leftover strawberries?! Score!

Cana- Newborn {My Photography}

Meet Miss Cana!! She is the beautiful baby girl of my friend Courtney, whose maternity pictures I showed you last week. She was born in the summer, so we were able to get some shots outside. She didn't like it too much, so we hurried and then went inside too. She didn't want to sleep for me, but we did our best. I think the crying shots are cute anyway..look at those tiny lips.

Snickerdoodle Blondies {Foodie Friday}

I try to pretty much stick to chocolate desserts, but every once in a while I try to break out of my little box and try something different. I have loved Snickerdoodle desserts in the past, so I figured this wasn't any different. Plus in my personal opinion anything with cinnamon on it can be considered breakfast food =) The nutmeg in this gives this a fall-ish feel, so you could certainly leave that out if you wish.
