I hope and pray it's me and NOT you but in order for me to get another chance I have to give you a chance so go enter here!
I entered and so can you, entries until Dec 24th! I entered because Alana would get some great use out of this computer because she cannot use a mouse even the adapted ones. She gets ticked that touching the screen does nothing.

I found a bear at the goodwill today that sings "I'm a super duper pooper"
I was umm giggling my big head off.
Here is a video of a same bear on youtube.. go ahead watch it but make sure you don't have any liquids in your mouth or do not have to use the restroom lol. My bear doesn't have the diaper.
I'm sure the bear was inspired by this clip which is just wrong on so many levels. (the parents sing the song at the 1:20 mark)

I also do not have a jelly roll pan so what I ended up doing was a small layer in a 13 x 9 baking metal sheet/pan I got from pillsbury a little bigger layer in a 13 x 9 glass cake pan and same size layer in a 9 x 9 glass pan. Seriously it makes that much lol. I'm sure you could modify this recipe in half and use a 13 x 9 pan if you do not want that many bars. Also if you do a smaller layer or a metal pan I'd advise only 20 minutes in the oven. I set the timer for 20minutes and took the metal pan out and then left the 2 glass ones in for 10-15 additonal minutes.
1 1/2 cup oil (I used canola)
3 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 large can (29 oz) pumpkin (or 2 15oz cans)
3 1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. salt
(chocolate chips or cream cheese frosting or both in my case)
Mix together eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla, and pumpkin. Fold in dry ingredients and pour into jelly roll pan (13 x 18 pan) . At this point sprinkle the pan with chocolate chips and/or nuts if desired. Bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Do not over bake. Frost with cream cheese frosting.

1 large box instant chocolate pudding
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup milk
fruit for garnish (such as mandarin oranges cut in half, raspberries, strawberry slices, banana slices, etc)
In a large bowl combine pudding, milk, and whipping cream. Mix together by hand using a wire whisk. Mix well to ensure a smooth mix. When the pudding starts to set, it is finished and needs to be used immediately. Place filling into a large zip lock bag or pastry bag. Squeeze out extra air and seal the top. If using zip lock bag, cut a hole, to fit into the hole in the pastry, in one corner of the bag. Pipe filling into each fillo shell. (This filling with thicken as you chill the pastries)

People are always saying Donni looks like a little surfer including myself (hair mostly :-P) so I had a crazy idea and he is a surfer for halloween. Did you know they don't make a surfer costume?? Did you know I couldn't find a mini surfboard online?? So I made one to be used as his bag because really you can't expect an almost 2 year old to carry a bag AND a surfboard... Shoot he probably wont even carry the combo I made.. or any bag for the matter. I got the design idea for the surfboard from this because he is wearing nemo trunks..
