Pumpkin Muffins

I love making muffins and I have not made them in awhile.  I was cleaning out the panty and I came across a can of pumpkin, so we made these delicious muffins.

2013-4-18 Pictures 009    The muffin holder is from the dollar tree.  I have been 2013-4-18 Pictures 010getting these for different holidays.  They are so fun and add a little pizzazz for your buck.  The tulip placemats are also from the dollar tree.  We have two different tables that we have put together to make a bigger table to fit our family. I buy 4 of the patterned placemats for different holidays and place then across the middle of the adjoining tables to cover the seam.  I love the dollar store for supper cheap and cute ideas to celebrate the seasons and holidays of life.  The Calla Lilies are from my garden, one of my favorite flowers.

2013-4-18 Pictures 011I found The Family Dinner Questions  at Chickabug Blog. They are a free download for subscribing to How Does She. I only put about 1/3 of the questions in the jar, so I will be able to rotate them with the other questions not used later on.   

I also found this faith based family Dinner Question kit. You can download this at Happy Home Fairy.

I think it is really important to celebrate seasons and holidays and everyday life.  We serve a God who loves to celebrate, we see it throughout His word.

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.    Psalm 16:11

Enjoying the little things that make life a celebration~
