You are so cute! I love this kind of math, I'm sure I would have gotten much better grades if only I could have used your 'formula'...YES!!!! xo

If my daughter sees the pink pumpkin all will be lost in this house, lost in pink I mean. :)

And that measurement system is the answer to the battle of metric vs yards systems.... just saying. Xoxo

GOOD MORNING PINK LADY!!!

Ohhh my goodness, you got me off to the right start today my friend! I am off this morning to my first substitute teaching assignment. I feel strange not having been in the classroom for over 3 months now! AHHH! But this is a good word for the day. DO NOT TAKE THINGS TO SERIOUSLY! OK, I can do this.....I can!

I love your pink pumpkin. This is exciting. I bet in your home, it feels like eternal spring...with all the aqua, pink and red!

TIGHT HUGS TO YOU TODAY! Anita

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Koralee,

I'm not here for the cookies but to tell you that on Ria's It's Me blog you were looking at Date Branches. They're sold at Hobby Lobby and for sure at most florists in the USA as well.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

OH MY DEAR! I just saw you POP in as I was leaving my computer!

I am OFF today, but I go in HALF day tomorrow! WELL, yesterday was a pure delight. I LOVE the kids. I was in the same district, but at a regular English speaking school. We had fun, the day flew by, and I think if most days are like this, I will be loving this! I go in tomorrow to my former French school, so that will be very lovely to see some of my beloved colleagues.

OK, now tell me my friend, I understood that you had a book that was already published and out by now? Or am I wrong? You are working on another one, or the one you had mentioned a while back?I am so thrilled for YOU and that this is happening for you! I hope one day I can at least get into one of the Stampington issues. I am working on that now.

How is school going for YOU? And your Thanksgiving, it was wonderful? What are you baking these days?

I am going to go finish a special order for a BLUE BIRD Christmas tree topper then write...oh, the joy of having some time off!

Biggest hugs dear friend, Anita

I can't think of a better way to measure pink pumpkins!

Marilyn said...

Your magic pink wand has done it again and then added gingersnap cookies too! Wow!, just lovely!
BTW Ymmmm too on the Pumpkin Chai, now onward and upward.

magie said...

I love the pink pumpkin..I may have to paint one of my little pumpkins pink now as well, it's so pretty! I don't think any cookies here would last long enough for me to measure my pumpkin though..especially ones as yummy as yours :)
Have a lovely weekend x
Magie

Libbie said...

I am blaming you....all I wanted was a cute little pink pumpkin like yours...NOT as easy as it looks :) Mine just didn't turn out...at all....so if your pumpkin goes missing....I took it!

wendy said...

Your pictures are always just so fanciful I think. Love them
I have NOT even found me a single pumpkin yet. I sure miss the pumpkin fields of Utah.

Lisa Graham Art said...

Now I want to bake eight batches of ginger cookies and eat them three times. :) YUMMO!

Sue said...

Pink pumpkins? I love it! :) Of course the ginger cookies are a favorite around here!
