New Contest

So, I was thinking of having another photo contest, and I have a few ideas for the theme, but I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Our grandpa always carves the turkey on Thanksgiving, and this year our dog, Murphy, practically started holes through him, watching to make sure that he didn't miss anything.

    Ok, I realize I need to clarify the last post's photos a little more.
    The exact moment when I realized it was when I showed the last three photos to my parents, and they said,   "What's that big chocolate thing on top of the icing?"
    So, just to explain those photos a little more, I took a spoon and scooped up some of the icing on it, and then sprinkled it with red and white sprinkles.
    Sorry for any confusion!

Peppermint Cupcakes

         So, I know it's not even past Thanksgiving yet, but I was really in the mood to make something "Christmasy". But when I found this King Arthur Flour Peppermint Cupcake recipe, I knew I wanted to make it, and since we're having some homeschool friends over, it was perfect excuse for me to make these!

      It was actually a toss up between this and their Gingersnaps recipe, but these looked so good, I just couldn't resist! The gingersnaps will have to be later.

     Also, while I was waiting for the cake part to finish baking, I decided to take some pictures of the icing. I think they turned out pretty festive, don't you?

     I couldn't get the red quite right in these pictures. Any suggestions on what settings to use so it doesn't make the red so harsh?

Murphy and the Pink Pillow

These pictures, in a nutshell, are the best description of our dog. Ever. Period.

A Foggy Morning...

     I am incredibly sorry for the lack of posts lately, but it's been crazy around our house. So, to make up for it, I'm going to post more photos than I usually do.
     It was foggy and kind of damp this morning, and the plants were beautiful! All of the water droplets in these pictures were completely made by nature (no water bottle, promise!)

Camera Bag Giveaway

Pamela is giving away an Epiphanie camera bag here.


I'm doing Rosetta Stone's German for school, and for part of the extra activities I'm finding Traditional German recipes and making them. The one I found and did today was Sugar Zwieback, a twice-baked cookie with a sugar crust. It was wonderful! This is the link, and here are some pictures:

This one is of the cookies before I sliced them and toasted them.

These are the cookies completed!
