I let him crack some eggs open. Which I then had to remove some eggshells.
I let him measure and pour some ingredients. Which I then had to add a little more because some of it didn't make it into the bowl.
And I let him use the electric mixer, which he thought was too loud. I think I will definitely keep this as an activity we do together. And try my best to make it a weekly thing.
- 3 cups sugar
- 1 cup cooking oil
- 4 eggs
- 3-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2/3 cup water
- 1 15-ounce can pumpkin
1. Grease the bottom and 1/2 inch up sides of two 9x5x3-inch, three 8x4x2-inch, or four 7-1/2x3 1/2-x2-inch loaf pans; set aside. In a very large mixing bowl beat sugar and oil with an electric mixer on medium speed. Add eggs and beat well; set aside.
2. In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add flour mixture and water alternately to sugar mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined. Beat in pumpkin. Spoon batter into prepared pans.
3. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 55 to 65 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near centers comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove from pans. Cool completely on wire racks. Wrap and store overnight before slicing. Makes 2 loaves (32 servings).

Friday night we went out with our Engaged & Young Married's Group to see a movie in the park. They were showing Monster House, a cute animated Halloween-ish movie. Cohen didn't really well with the movie. This is only the second movie he has watched and he was pretty attentive. Even when he got a little 'scared' he would still want to watch the movie. It was really cute. Avery was really good throughout as well. A little into the movie I had to feed her, so she pretty much just slept the whole time. A cool front also came in the evening. It got down to the mid 60's and it felt so good.
Saturday we just bummed it around the house after Jay's football scrimmage. We opened up the windows, did a little cleaning, and relaxed a lot.
Sunday evening we decided to head out last minute to the pumpkin patch. We go every year as a tradition and it was extra fun this year having Avery with us. Avery was taking it all in until she quietly fell asleep. I did try and get some pics of her...but she wasn't all that interested. Cohen ran around the whole time, throwing pumpkins, which we had to end, and trying to make new friends. He tried to pick up a few big pumpkins and would exclaim "too big". By the end he wanted to get a small pumpkin, so we gave him a dollar and taught him his first lesson with money and goods. It was really cute.

Saturday we went to a friend's baby shower, toured the new Amway Center, the home of the Orlando Magic, and went on our first post baby date.
Sunday was all about family. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful weather and headed down to the river walk for some fun in the sun.
And we ended the night giving Cohen a much needed haircut.
