Chocolate Elf House Cake


We made a chocolate Big Top Cupcake with chocolate icing yesterday for the Girl Scout Daisy Troop Cmas Party last nite: marshmallow bushes outside the graham cracker door. I'm not a good cake decorator, but Clarice & I loved making the cake and it was eaten quickly, because it was so moist & delicious (thanks, Duncan Hines!). :)

October happenings...


While Mom was away taking care of Granddad, Clarice made a card for her Dad, who took care of her. The card says, "My Dad is special (speshl) because (beecuz)... he loves me!"



Kelly's mom, Jennifer, gave Clarice this book and now Clarice can read it all by herself -- except she says "Callepitters" instead of "Caterpillars."



Clarice is excited about Danny & Rhonda's baby (we don't know if they will have boy or girl, so Clarice drew both in the crib). Clarice hopes the baby will born on her birthday, Dec. 11. Maybe Santa will help with that request?

October spookiness...


Been raining a lot lately... here's the Morton Salt girl!


Whoa! Halloween is scary!


Clarice designed and Daddy carved this Jackolantern.

Fall rainy days











Clarice's new tiny seahorse.


Jack-o-lanterns glow in the dark and are poisonous.



These are Parasols and are supposed to taste good, but we bought the chocorooms at Aldi's and ate those, instead. :)



Just some of the fun the Arnolds are up to these days.

New pink scooter






Clarice is now an expert on her new pink scooter that Mimi bought her. Here she is in a new dress (also a gift from Mimi) which color coordinates with her scooter! Clarice wants to take her scooter everywhere. She is also getting much better riding her bike (without training wheels). We think the scooter really helped her gain confidence to ride the "two-wheeler."
