pumpkin awesomeness

Last week I decided I wanted some sort of pumpkin cookie. I considered putting pumpkin and spices into my basic sugar cookie dough, but didn't know how the extra ingredients would affect the whole shebang (is that a word?). Then I thought about just making my regular sugar cookies... and this is where the stroke of genius came.... which is probably quite common for the rest of you, but rare for me... PUMPKIN ICING to go on TOP of the cookies!!!! YESSSSSS.

I had a block of cream cheese, so I made it cream cheese icing. I took the block, softened it a little, added about 2/3 a can of pumpkin, dumped some regular old sugar in the mix, added a few shakes of pumpkin pie spice, and blended it all together.

GENIUS!!! Pumpkin Cream Cheese Icing. YUMMO!!!!

Yes. They're that good. 

And Leah-Approved! 
Hope you're all having a great week! Mine has been a wee bit too crazy, but all for good :). Kids are doing great in school, I'm doing well managing this family and my part-time jobs (just did an awesome post-adoption visit- those are the best :), and Zach's kickin' it in school. Oh, and we've won (okay, Pete and the other 5-yr-olds) have won ALL of our soccer games. That's right. Snap. Not that we're keeping track. I think Zach and I should win "rookie coaches of the year." One game to go in the season! Also, I'm slightly shocked that we're nearing the end of October. Time flies when you're doing crazy amounts of stuff!!!! COFFEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!
