Holy cow, this is the best pie crust that I have ever had the pleasure of eating. I don't even really like pie crust. I have been known to take a spoon and simply hollow out a pie because I didn't want the crust to ruin the filling. To me, crust is only to help contain the pie and make it pretty. It has never been worthy of eating, in my opinion. I can now officially say that I have finally had a pie crust worthy of eating! This recipe is simply the bomb and my taste-testers agreed. My crust tasted buttery like a croissant and the texture was pleasantly flaky. It does take a little time to make but it is soooo worth the results. Trust me on this one. Go to this blog to get the deets on how to make this sinful concoction. She has it down to an art with easy to follow directions and photos to help you along in the process. Enjoy! :)
BTW-The pie pictured above was of the apple variety but this crust would be good for any kind.

I can't believe that both of my kiddos are now school-age. Wow. Emerson couldn't wait to complete this milestone today. He drove me nuts all morning because he was ready to go to school. It's too bad that he had to wait until 12pm to go. The morning dragged on forever for my little guy, lol. Once we got there, I showed him where to stand in line and then I watched him make his first trip into the cafeteria for lunch (afternoon kindergarten has lunch at 12pm and then school from 12:30-3:30pm). It was incredibly sad. I have been waiting forever for this day as I am not a mother who enjoys babies/toddlers but it really affected me. I had to rush out of there before I burst into tears. My heart felt a little broken as I sat in my car this afternoon without having my little copilot behind me. Emerson has always went everywhere with me and I can honestly say that I am going to miss that.

Today begins Hayden's first full week of school and Emerson's first day of school. E has afternoon kindergarten so he goes from 12-3:30pm. Half day school is one of the things I hate about Colorado. Full day kindergarten isn't funded. In NC, 1/2 day wasn't even an option and I had never heard of it in public schools. Oh well, Emerson is bummed but he will just have to wait until first grade to be a full-time student.

Hayden Gray-7 years
Today is the first day of school for Hayden. He was excited to go back and see his friends this morning. He has a really nice teacher and I think that this school year is going to go well for him. :)

This was Emerson's first year getting to play and he did great! He played mostly t-ball but they started pitching towards the end of the program. He did well batting and rarely missed. His strength is definitely pitching though. I am amazed at his accuracy.
Hayden did really well this year with baseball. I was disappointed in the TRPR program though. It wasn't very instructional and I feel like he got nothing out of it. He was also disappointed in it so next year we will try to go back to LBL which is a much better program. It costs a lot more but the experience he got from it last year was remarkable.
