Pumpkin Pie

With it really feeling like fall outside, blustery and so cold it is hat weather.
We are staying indoors and baking, yes you read that correctly. ;)

First my son was so excited to help me mix the ingredients for his gluten free cupcakes.
He did a wonderful job and even helped me pour it into the cupcake tin.

Yum, they come out so moist and delicious.
They are so good they don't even need icing.

While the real cupcakes were baking in the oven my son asked if he could paint.
One of our favorite past times.
So he asked for his favorite color, Orange, and started on a paper plate upside down.
As he continued to look for supplies he got the glue and did a ring around the outside edge and started filling it with cotton balls.
I looked at it and thought this looks just like a pumpkin pie!
What a wonderful surprise his creating led too.  A perfect pumpkin pie to add to our Thanksgiving decorations.
