Halloween Cupcakes!

These candied Halloween cupcakes are to die for! Our brother, Dottie and
I made them for a harvest party tomorrow!


HaLoWeEn CoStUmEs

We love dressing up our dolls,plastic guinea pig toys and Gus.
But we love dressing up ourselves!
We love making up our costumes instead of buying them.
It is a lot of fun.
Dottie is gonna be a cowgirl and I'm gonna be a bee.
We will show a picture of them on Halloween!!!!

My Auntie made all the six aprons now. This is what they look like!

There's me and my sister, and four guests! And, they're all girls!


Candy Robber!

Candy robbering on Halloween is pretty usual at our house! There always seems to be a candy missing in the bowl!

fall poems

This is a poem about fall.

Today on this windy day
the sun was low in the sky
cars with windshield wipers running passing by
rain pouring out of gutters and people
tightly closing their shutters
I get into my house I sit down and spread my quilt
and eat warm muffins with milk.

I would say this poem well describes a rainy day.

50's Birthday!

I am going to have a 50's themed birthday party soon. I will turn 7 years old. Today my Auntie sent us an email and she said she is going to make these aprons for every girl! And one for me and my sister, Polkie!

Fall is here!

Today I saw that fall was here I could tell by
looking at the tree in my backyard. We are having a fall give away.

Gus's claws

Someone left a comment, asking about Gus's claw maintenance. They use nail clippers and we do watch. It only takes, like, two minutes.

Smiling Gus

Gus smiles all the time. He has two big front teeth. He weighs about four pounds and just so you know he is a guinea pig. He is only two years old. He has sharp claws! We take him in to a pet grooming shop that trims his claws.

THE COOKIE RECIPE from our Grandma

(See the photos below)

2 1/4 C. flour
1/4 t. salt
2 t. baking powder
1/2 C. shortening
1 C. sugar
2 beaten eggs
1/2 t. vanilla
1 T. milk

Gently stir together the flour, salt and baking powder. In a separate bowl, mix the shortening and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs and vanilla to the wet ingredients and mix. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and add the milk. Mix all together until well combined.

These cookies can be rolled out immediately. There is no need to chill the dough.
We place them on cookie sheets covered in parchment paper.
Bake at 350, for about 10 minutes.
Makes 2 1/2 dozen, (depends on the size of cut outs.)

We triple this recipe!


We made a simple icing with powdered sugar, a tiny bit of milk, vanilla, and butter, then added food coloring. You can also sprinkle them with sprinkles before baking.


Recipe coming soon!
