My little Fairy and the Pumpkin Spice cupcakes

As I sit here enjoying the quietness in the house as my granddaughter takes her nap, I am reflecting on the morning she and I have had. She arrived at my door at 8:30 this morning in a black tutu, pink and orange fairy wings, and a pink fairy wand. So cute and very different than the girl pirate she was yesterday for nursery school. I had a Halloween bag of small packaged peanut butter mini crackers (90 cal), and sponge bob gummy crab snacks (4 for 140 cal), a doll with 6 Halloween costume changes, stickers, and scary eyes.

After playing an hour and scaring me and her Papa many times over, I told her after breakfast she and I would bake cupcakes and her little face lite up. She helped me make the Pumpkin spice cupcakes (1 dry Duncan Spice cake mix, 1 can Libby’s Pure Pumpkin, and ½ c boiling H20. While they baked I entered the recipe in the log for my recipes. They added up to be 55 cal for 1 cupcake.)

Of course Nana had a small surprise for her….her favorite color……PINK icing and ghost’s sprinkles! She had so much fun decorating half of the cupcakes and I had the joy of watching and sharing how happy she was!

My house smells so good like a fresh pumpkin pie coming straight out of the oven. My husband and I had one each of the undecorated cupcakes and savored every bite! So, so, good! The log showing really nice for my vitamin A .Makes me smile as I think about Kel’s post on her pumpkin oatmeal this morning……my next adventure to try!

Oh, gotta go, the little fairy is waking up from her magic sleep….Shhhh, be quite!
