Pumpkins & Cupcakes

I hope that everyone had an enjoyable weekend. Things were jumping around here this weekend. Literally!

Friday started out with a fundraising Jump A Thon at school. Then there was an orange party in the classroom. Dinner with the in-laws and a trip to the hardware store. Another section of fence was almost completed.

The swoop needs to be cut and then this section will be done. Yes!

Megan asked for a large pumpkin this year.

She was delighted with this and anxious to get busy.

After all of the yuck and muck was removed it was carving time.

Megan drew both of the faces and Chuck helped her to cut them. I think they turned out great.

I saw a cupcake that looked like candy corn on Pinterest and knew I wanted to try them.

This is the first time Megan has used the mixer by herself. She did really well, but I am waiting for the splatter. I don't think you get the don't pull the beaters out of the batter statement until you do it and make a splatter mess. One of those lessons that you have to learn the hard way.

I didn't get the color separation I was looking for because I forgot to drop the pan on the counter to settle the yellow before I put on the orange batter. Oops! Oh, well I think they are still cute.

I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
