  1. Strangely enough, even though we got an extra hour of sleep, I still am sleepy all the time. November isn't my favourite month, as it's getting colder and colder, the first snow appears, but in your case it sounds like fun... how old are you turning? :)

    I've never heard of pumpkin cupcakes, so let us know if they're any good! Good luck with those!
