Are you ready for the kidlets to come knocking tonight? The pic above is for all the daycare kidlets and a few extra for brothers and sisters. Hannah was happy to put these together for me yesterday.
Now...I have this to contend with All. Day. Long. I bought my candy Saturday, so I would not be tempted to eat so much of it. 165 pieces. I think they'll be some leftover. Oh, the horror!
Hannah was in silly Halloween mode yesterday. She was on MY LAST NERVE. I finally put her in the kitchen and let her make 24 cupcakes!
I'm a bit sad today because Ryder is sick. We had planned a big night for him to trick or treat at our house tonight. I'll have to suck it up and know that he needs to stay in tonight and get well. I'm still cooking chili for the rest of the family. I have a fabulous looking recipe to give you now. I'll be making this later on today. I hope it tastes as good as it sounds.
Pumpkin Pie Croissants
Start with 2 tubes of refrigerated crescent rolls. Roll each crescent roll out and cut lengthwise in 2. This recipe will make 32 mini croissants. Each croissant will get a generous tablespoon of this luscious pumpkin pie filling:
1/2 block of cream cheese
1 cup of canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 T sugar
Beat together until fluffy and creamy.
Mix together 4 T sugar and 1 T pumpkin pie spice and roll each pumpkin pie croissant in it!
Bake at 375* for 15-18 minutes. Enjoy!
There's your treat from The Place today!!
I'm getting a bit ancy about decorating for Christmas. I know...I know...shut my mouth. Anyway...we have a new addition to the family this year, Sophia! I had to get in gear to get her stocking ordered. I always get my stockings from JC Penney. They are just beautiful. It started out with just 4....now we have 8! Nine with the dogs stocking! The mantle is getting pretty full now! The mantle looks just beautiful at Christmas.
I hope your neighborhood still enjoys Halloween. Our neighborhood always has a really good number of children come through. I'll be
