Half a year? Seriously?!!

My little Hallie is six months old. That is half a year!! Where did the time go? I thought time went fast with Eli, but I seriously can barely even remember Hallie as a little lump. I swear she was only an infant until the day she came home from the hospital, and then she became a baby that smiled, cooed, giggled, wiggled, and grabs everything. She even eats baby food! Why can't they stay teeny tiny for longer?

All I know is the first half a year of my pregnancy did NOT go this fast. Sometimes I think I am ready for another one already.... then I wipe a poopy bum and realiize two is FABULOUS for now!
P.s. I totally HATE blogger (or else I am just computer stupid). The pictures are supposed to be in order from birth-6 months, and they look fine in preview, but then when I post they go screwy. This suck!! LIndsay I need your help- what is the place called that you type your posts in?

Absolutely Delicious!!

I know, I know you are all shocked, that me Lessley Teeples, she who never cooks, is posting a recipe. (but it is a dessert, so that is a little more believable). I know alot of you are on diets, but I highly recommend you have a free day and make this YUMMY pie. I thought it was fabulous, and I made it, and it turned out, so you know it has got to be easy. So here goes my first posted recipe:

Banana Caramel Spice Pie
1 large ripe banana, sliced
1 OREO Pie Crust (6 oz.)
2 cups cold milk
2 pkg. (4-serving size each) JELL-O White Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie Filling
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
1 cup caramel ice cream topping
PLACE banana slices on bottom of crust.
POUR cold milk into large bowl. Add dry pudding mixes and cinnamon. Beat with wire whisk 2 minutes or until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping. Spoon into crust.
REFRIGERATE 4 hours or until set. Serve topped with caramel topping. Store leftover pie in refrigerator.
