Today was one of those days. Feeling a little down and emotional. (Insert Monica "Just one of dem days that a girl goes through...") It's been a super cloudy day & I started the day with some super sad news from a friend. I think the tone of the day was set from then on. Probably a bunch of PMS. When I feel like that, I like to bake things for my kids. They smile, I smile. Win win.
So, I decided to make one those cute little bundt cake pumpkins. I got the idea from Country Living Magazine:
I found the picture on the left on Pinterest. Not sure where it originated from. I have a little mini bundt cake pan. It's like a cupcake tin, but all bundts. Super cute for the kids.
It was easy to make them:
1) Just bake the bundts
2) Let them cool
3) Put a little frosting in between 2 of them
4) Stick them together
5) This was the tricky part for me: getting that frosting on there! I slathered on a ton of it, but it still didn't cover the whole pumpkin.
Oh well, the kids loved them & they made me giggle.
We all had plans as a family to go somewhere together, but I was just not in the mood to see a bunch of people. I just wanted to stay at home with my little sweetheart girl & carve a pumpkin.
We decided to go to Wal-Mart to pick our big ole pumpkin. On the way this song came on:
It's like the perfect song for a bummer kind of day when you just need to remember the good stuff. I love it.
When we got there we shared a Happy Meal at McDonalds:
We had the best time. She wanted me to video her singing one of her favorite songs, "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star."
This girl is such a little sunshine:
I asked her what she wanted her Jack-O-Lantern to look like. She said, "A mean face with fire!" OK done:
Such a sweet time with my precious girl. We need more girl time. Totally cheered me up & I know it was good for her too because she rarely gets all my attention.
It's ok to hang back sometimes & just regroup. To breathe.
