Recipe Anyone?

Here ya go Kim! I hope y'all enjoy them, I have a cake recipe that you MUST try, it's delicious!!
Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

1 - 18.5 ounce yellow cake mix (plus ingredients called for in package directions)
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (I just used what spices I had on hand)
1 - 15 oz. can of pumpkin puree
2 - 8 oz bars of cream cheese at room temp.
2 cups powdered sugar
24 candy corn pieces (I didn't have these)

xxHeat oven to 350. Line two 12 cup muffin tins with liners. Prepare cake mix as directed but with the following change: Add the pumpkin pie spice & substitute the pumpkin puree for the water that is called for in the package directions.

xxDivide batter among muffin tins and bake until toothpick inserted comes out clean, 18 to 22 minutes. Let cool.

xxMeanwhile, using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar until creamy. Spread on cupcakes and top with candy corn.

Now, for the star of this show!

Landry went to the doc the other day and got his flu shot! He was SUCH as big guy and didn't even cry! He's so big it breaks my heart.

Okay, so the little mister has always enjoyed pulling out the silverware in the dishwasher (don't worry, I remove all knives). However, the other nite, he learned that he could actually climb up there and get a much better view of things.
Do you notice all of my silverware on the floor? Lovely isn't it?
Oh, Mom let's bake those pumpkin cupcakes! Here, I've already got the wisk!
Then he realized he could open cabinet doors better from up there. I've got to get some of those lock things.
So remember the bathroom remodel thing? Here's a pic of our "master bathroom" before we moved in 2 years ago. (it should actually be called the "master joke" because it's a sad, pathetic excuse for a master bath) I do give credit, because at least when we remodeled the first time it did look better than this, but it could only be helped so much.
Here's looking into the shower and toilet area. Isn't it just horrible. I know. Ugh.
Here's after Chris put the tub in the other nite. This weekend the sheetrock and everything will go back up and we'll pick out tile! HALLELUJAH!! The bathtub is huge and deep and wonderful. I asked my hubby the other nite if there is something in this world that he can't do... He couldn't come up with anything.
Remember that wall that used to be up beside the vanity? GONE!! And we moved the wall (the one closest to my hubby's head in the pic above) out into the bedroom like 11 or 12 inches. Oh, we also added french doors into our bedroom and Chris sandblasted the windows so they'd offer privacy and light at the same time! They're great!
Here's Landry this morning at my mom's house. She bought him new houseshoes! Aren't they cute! He didn't seem to mind too much, but I doubt they'll stay on long!
Oh my goodness this face! I certainly hope he'll outgrow it soon. But it does make us laugh!
And of course he volunteered to help Grammy do her dishes too! Isn't he thoughtful!
What a mess he is!

Hopefully next week I'll have some more remodel pictures!
Enjoy your weekend, it's supposed to be COLD here (in the 40's).
I'm making stew!

Thanks for the recipe! I can't wait to see the finished bathroom. And, we could really use Landry's help around here before he outgrows his helping stage!
