  1. I’m with Josh….could not do pizza for a week. Looks like Caleb and Maxwell had a good time in florida…is it just me or has Maxwell really grown taller this fall? Can’t wait to try new cookie recipes. Have a great weekend!

  2. Ooh, the inventions! I didn’t know about most of them. It’s fantastic that somebody finally invented an athletic hijab, and I now feel downright un American having never tried the Halo ice cream.

  3. Your aerial shot of the road (?) running along the mountain ridge is amazing & beautiful!! Do you know where that is?
    My husbabd & I drove Highway 12 in Utah …. breathtaking drive along the ridge of the mountains. Ate @ Hell’s Backbone Grill in Boulder, Utah….. UNFORGETTABLE!! You live in a state with such gorgeous scenery!!
