Pumpkin Beer Bread

Sunday was the perfect fall day. Pure sunshine and 60 degrees. Sten and I took Lucy out for a little jog and then we sat out on the porch and enjoyed the sound of neighbors raking leaves and jumping from trees into big piles below :) I can't wait until Lucy's big enough to play with the neighbors. I hope she's adventurous, and daring, and takes risks, and has tons of fun.
In the midst of fall gazing I wanted to make a pumpkin goodie. I found this recipe and it looked easy and quick and I gave it a try. It's a winner! There aren't too many ingredients and the flavor is great. I wish it were a little more pumpkin-y, but we loved it still.
Ingredients: 3 c flour 1 tbsp Baking Powder 1 tsp salt 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice 3 tbsp honey 1 c pumpkin purée 1 12oz beer
Combine flour, BP, salt, spice, honey and pumpkin. Slowly add beer and mix until incorporated. 
Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 9x5 bread pan, bake for 50-60 mins.

Cannot believe our little nugget is 2 weeks and 1 day old today. She has already brought us immeasurable amounts of joy, tears, worry and love. It has been the ultimate example to me about how great our God is.

Lucy was born September 20th at 8:44am weighing 6 lbs 15 oz and 21 inches long. She is perfect.
 pure happiness.
Our time in the hospital was great with lots of wonderful nurses and many great visitors. Lucy is very loved and we are so thankful for family and friends.

When we got home on Monday from the hospital we gave Lucy a tour of her house. There may have been some tears while we paraded her through the hallway and into each room. I can't believe she gets to grow up here. What a lucky lady.

When Lucy was 5 days old we had to take her to the U of M to see a specialist about a congenital cataract in her left ey…
