Cooking and baking go hand in hand with the holidays in my home. Last month we hosted back-to-back Thanksgiving dinners and Christmas is no different. Not only do we have the family meals, but there are also school parties, friends parties and much more. Our oven really gets a workout through the next few weeks.

A few days ago, a cold front swept across the Midwest leaving us with extreme Fall-like weather.We went from shorts and tees to hoodies, jackets and pants. The short tease of the Fall season leaves me wanting to go on hayrides and apple-picking more than ever.

When my friend, Ashley, and I get together with the kids, we like to have fun. She jumps at any excuse to have a themed party, dinner, or playdate. However most of the time, she doesn’t even need a reason (or lots of guests) to do so. I remember last year when her oldest started preschool, she had a huge school-themed layout complete with decorations, just for her 3-year-old’s breakfast.
