A Roundup of Fall and Holiday Cupcakes (redux)

Note to the reader, this is a reprint from a post I did a few years ago, but Henry and I were looking online today for Halloween cupcakes, and realized that the best ones were right here! Enjoy. Well, it happened. Someone found me by Googling hedgehog cupcakes. Which reminds me that was in a…

Super boys

Kids around here (like Will and his visiting friend) can jump pretty high…. higher than a HOUSE, even. This kept them occupied FOREVER!  They just love the instant gratification of digital cameras. They kept checking their progress to see how high they could fly. Then they enjoyed the soft green grass, you know, when you…
