foodie friday! best s'mores everrr.

so i know things have been a little quiet round here. we are adjusting to this new schedule with our little man who thinks it's awesome to stay up all night. he also thinks it's awesome to eat, so i spend quite a bit of time feeding little mister. as i was sitting on the couch nursing, this magazine was staring back at me...
which led to some serious s'more craving. i sent the above photo to my sister with a little message something like this: make me these.
sister delivered.
homemade graham crackers!!! stars and scalloped edges and all!
she takes such good care of me!
these are without a doubt the best s'mores i have ever had. in my long lived life. mind you, we are serious marshmallow cookers. notice martha's mallows are white and charred. totally unacceptable in this household. they must be perfectly golden and properly cooked until they are evenly toasted on the outside and gooey in the middle.
serious business i tell you.

and as if there wasn't goodness overload already, my sister also brought her homemade salted carmel sauce and my barista made us caramel steamers. a little piece of heaven i tell you.

some essentials for an amazing s'more. telescoping marshmallow fork. good chocolate.

for the graham cracker recipe: visit here.

i love your soft sweet cheeks.
i can't get enough of your newborn faces and stretches.
your sister loves to pull off your blanket and socks.
your daddy likes to munch your cheeks.
you have a cry that lets us know you mean business.
your daddy says you sound like a goose when you cry.
your cousin lincoln says you smell good.
i think so too.
your grandma & [great] aunt jan say you look 'so boy'.
you sleep all day and are up half the night.
even still,
we're so glad God gave you to us...
welcome to our world little mister.
