pumpkin and ice cream

The girls made ice cream in the ice cream ball....nothing like home made vanilla with cream, sugar, and the best Mexican vanilla!!!!!




I made a bunch of desserts for Thanksgiving...Maybelle had to let go of Melman (the pumpkins name) who she has loved since Halloween...it was quite difficult for her, but the end result......delicious!!!!!



See the tears on Melman? Maybelle had a few too.
