"Quit bitching, Flo! The doc just called the beautician. Said she'll be over as soon as she can and get that silly zig-zag out of your hair."

Hi, my pretties! Yes! It's that time of year again. I've got a lot to show and share with you. I just wanted to say, I've had decorations out since before the end of September. Dang, they're already putting out Christmas in stores, so, why not?

Anyway, those two above are a scream aren't they? You want to make them? Go to link here.

Got a few more. Just keep scrolling down.
Look at this spiderweb cookie! I want one! I guess you need to find a cookie cutter that's in the shape of a spiderweb.
Spiderweb cookies!
These are easy, if only you had the cookie cutter. But in any case all you do is make white frosting and black. Spread the white frosting on the cookie, fill a baggie with the black frosting, make a small hole in a corner and make a spiral on the cookie, like this...

Then, take a toothpick and start at center and draw it toward the edge. Very easy!

And if you are in the mood for cake, how about graveyard cake? Mmmm, my favorite, when I'm about to go off to scare up Dracula in his coffin.

cute and sounds like fun to make!
I've got the recipe below:
1 package Oreos
1 8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
1 c. powdered sugar
1 large container cool whip
1/2 c. butter or margarine
2 boxes white chocolate or vanilla pudding (3.3 oz. boxes)
3 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
tombstone shaped cookies 
candy corn pumpkins

1. Crush 2/3 package of oreos, and place in bottom of a 9x13 pan. Set aside.
2.Mix cream cheese and margarine until smooth. Mix in powdered sugar and fold in whipped topping. Set aside.
3. In a separate bowl mix pudding, milk and vanilla. Fold this mixture in with the cream cheese mixture.
4. Pour over crumb mixture.
5. Sprinkle with the reserve crushed  Oreos.
6. Add tombstone-shaped cookies and pumpkins to the top. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Okay, that's all for now. Hope I've inspired you into the holiday with these baked goodies!

It isn't enough that I keep on getting mailings about it, reminding me of my turning a certain age. But the government had sent me ...
