We sure do love our baking friday adventures, and sharing our adventures with everyone :) keeping with the tradition, a wonderfully wholesome tradition :) Today Kayla, Mikey, Colby, Brayden, Jacob, and i baked some nice cinnamon pretzels :) we put a nice cinnamon/butter/brown sugar glaze on top of the pretzels :) They smell really good! :) i'm gonna have a pretzel this evening, and also having a nice garlic/string beans pasta meal too :) our dear friend Joe (Keyz) made a video of the recipe on youtube, and i really wanted to make the pasta for this evening :) awesome! :) 

my family and i hope everyone is doing well, and enjoying a great day! :) There's lots of great things to look forward too, as we gear up to welcome the fall season :) Its a beautiful time of the year, as the season begins to arrive :) We've been getting these sweet golden september sunrises, and tonight is the Fall Harvest moon :) It's beginning to feel like fall season now, with that cool crisp air, and the golden bright marigolds glowing from those sweet beams of sunshine :) We love September, and counting down to the fall season :) the harvesting season is in full swing :) Soon apple orchards, pumpkin patches, and lots more, will be all ready to be enjoyed throughout the season : )We've been seeing some of our neighbors put scarecrows in their front yards too :) This is awesome, and so much fun! :) Blossoming fall season spirit :) 

This morning, we had a beautiful new day rising and shining :) it was nicely cool. :) The sky began to turn to a sweet deep shade of blue, and i heard some birds singing outside this morning :) i love those sweet nature tunes :) i love to wish my family and friends a happy baking friday, and i share with my family, your wonderful happy baking friday wishes :) Thank you all so very much! :) You all are very nice, and sweet :) it was a nice morning, as i gathered up a nice big bowl of goodies for our nature animal friends, and went outside for my early morning nature walk :) our nature friends love their baking friday breakfast feast! :) aww! :) i was walking around our yard, and checking our plants :) i want to harvest more mammoth sunflower seeds soon :) 

We've been looking forward to all of the fall season nature, festivities, and traditions too :) we love to decorate, and getting into the spirit of the season :) i've been doing lots of decorating here in my computer room, and halloween town :) i gathered some decorations this morning, and went out into our kitchen to begin setting up, and decorating our kitchen for our super fun adventure :) i was very excited to decorate with a fall harvest display :) it looked awesome! :) we love getting into the spirit of the baking friday's, and decorating is a really cool part of it :) i cooked a nice lunch, and during the mid-day, i enjoyed another nice nature walk, and also some time here on ds, writing to friends :) 

Each week, we love to use our nice baking friday supplies :) in our kitchen, we keep many of our oven mits, kitchen towels, and also we love our nice aprons we've recieved over the years :) all of these wonderful supplies, are a big part of our cooking, and baking each week :) Alyssa and the triplets came over after 2pm :) The kids have been so excited, they are gonna be beginning pre-school on monday :) Colby, Jacob, and Brayden :) They're very excited about it :) Kayla and Taylynn arrived home from school shortly before 3pm :) they get out of school earlier this year :) Jenn, Mikey, and Hunter came over shortly after 3pm :) we were all gathering around. :) lots of great excitement in the air :) little Hunter was looking around, and so excited as he walks into the kitchen, and loves to see all of the excitement that baking friday brings :) 

We had our kitchen all set, and ready for our super fun adventure :) We got our picture taken in the kitchen :) It's a fun baking friday tradition :) we were all set, and ready for some baking friday fun! :) Calling all cookie monsters! :) cookie monsters unite! :) It's time to bake! bake! bake! :) We began our super fun adventure! :) We decided to make cinnamon pretzels today :) we got a nice big bowl, and lots of spoons :) Kayla and i have been teaching the kids a lot about baking :) they love the steps of adding the ingredients, and super stirring :) We're so proud of the kitchens :) 

We put some nice water, and yeast into a bowl, and super stirred it :) we then added in some cinnamon, and coconut sugar :) once we stirred it, we then added in some nice flour,  and even got the flour flying in the air in the kitchen! :) hehe! :) cookie monsters! :) baking friday teamwork! :) Woot! :) We were having a fun time, and sharing smiles :) we added flour to the water/yeast until it was a nice dough, for the pretzels :) once the dough was set, we let the dough sit for a little while, and i got some water heating up on the stove :) The kids were going back and forth a bit today :) they love getting to go outside, playing, and also playing the video games :) 

i cut the pretzel dough into portions, and Kayla and i made the pretzels into nice pretzels shape :) i then put the pretzels into the water and once the pretzels were in for a good 2 minutes, i then put the pretzels onto a nice greased pan :) Kayla and i then made some nice cinnamon topping, for the pretzels :) we melted butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar and drizzled it on the pretzels :) i then put the pretzels into the oven to bake! bake! bake! :) our kitchen smelled great! :) we did some cleaning in the kitchen, and the pretzels baked really nicely :) while the pretzels were baking, i began to cook some string beans with garlic and butter, for the  pasta dish i'm making for dinner :) Once the pretzels finished baking, i brought them out of the oven to cool down :) the pretzels came out great! :) 

i thanked Kayla and the kids for helping bake goodies :) We had a super fun time today baking, and we have many more fall season, and halloween season themed baking friday adventures to look forward too :) a very special shoutout for family and friends :) Lots of cooking, and baking this week : ) We love these awesome times! :) We love hearing about the nice foods, and goodies you all cook and bake :) We're with eachother in spirit in our kitchens :) i wish we all could gather and have a baking friday picnic :) Cinnamon Pretzels, dedicated to our wonderful family, friends, and to the wonderful spirit of the fall season :) We love you all so very very much! :) many great memories made, to always cherish and treasure :) baking friday! :) We love it!!! :) September 16th, 2016 :) Happy baking friday everyone! :)
