the last minute runs to the store, the day full of baking and icing, and baking some more.
Everyone had a great time and we did a lot of the old games and a bunch of crafts. Then everyone subsided into a sugar coma, lol.
Now I get to have left over cupcakes and brownies for the next few days as I way overestimated how many I would need. That and I got a bunch of the Little Debbie pumpkin sandwich cookies as back ups in case the cupcakes didn't turn out, so I'm going to be running on a sugar high this week.
And thanks to Wendy over at Athena Academy I am now forced to go back in the kitchen and make chocolate chip pumpkin bread. The craving has begun!
I hope to have another installment of Off The path tonight and pictures of the cool corn husk brooms we made!
Here's a charm for inner strength I found at Spells of Magic.com that if I do this next year I plan to have on my person at all times!:
Charm for Inner Strength
Empower an acorn with the following chant & carry it on your person during difficult times.
''Little seed with cap so fine, Grant your strength & make it mine. Make me as sturdy as your tree. As I will, so mote it be!'
