Weekend recap

This past weekend, my aunt and grandma came for a visit. It was nice to show them our house and also have them meet Natalie for the first time! Here are a couple photos from the weekend:

Trick-or-treating (Yes, Nathan wore the same costume last year--it still fit!)
Thanks for coming, Mary and Grandma. It was so good to see you!

Our menu during their stay included oatmeal bread, caramel apple salad (new recipe--loved it!--omitted nuts), apple muffins and pumpkin waffles (the following recipe came from this cookbook)

2 c. flour
2 T. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
3 eggs
1 3/4 c. milk
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 c. pumpkin puree
Mix ingredients well and bake on a lightly oiled waffle iron. Enjoy!
