Pumpkins Galore! ;)

It was a beautiful day here in Ohio. It felt rather "fallish"---and well, this time of year, I begin to think about pumpkins!  I love anything pumpkins....pumpkin rolls, pumpkin bread, pumpkin fudge, pumpkin cake, pumpkin bars---I think you get the point--I like my sweets! :)  I told my son and daughter that we'd make cookies today---and I believe they are holding me to that--so I need to do my post quickly.  We are making White Chocolate Pumpkin Dreams.  You can get the recipe here.  They love these and I haven't made them since last year. Sidenote--I truly enjoy Taste of Home. This is probably one of my favorite cookbooks.



Okay, so now to the school related part of my post....we started school this past Monday, but students didn't come until Thursday.  I have 20 beautiful firsties in my room.  I have assessed about half of them on letter identification, letter sounds, number words and color words.  They did well for the most part, but I felt they needed more practice with number/color words---and we know I have pumpkin on the brain--so here's a pumpkin themed sort (ohh and if you make the recipe--feel free to ship some to my house!) ;)
