menu plan monday ~ november 5, 2012

This week, the twins turn five! Cannot believe it has been five years already! We’re having cupcakes with them this evening and cake tomorrow night. May as well celebrate twice!

For trick or treat, the twins visited Great-Ma next door. All the able residents gathered in the front room with bowls of treats and toys. The twins thought this was the greatest deal ever!

Yesterday, while their parents helped clean the house in prep for the open house, the twins helped Auntie cut out molasses cookies.

Rose Red thought the Christmas windmill was fascinating. She blew on it to spin it. We’ll have to get replacement candles and show her how it is meant to work.

    I’m stopping by for a visit from Organizing Junkie, Menu Plan Monday.
    Yes, I agree with the twins! They hit the trick or treat jackpot.
    Everything looks so delicious.
