Sugar for Breakfast (It's Tea Tuesday)

This morning I'm drinking my usual black tea with milk,
so I won't bore you with a photo of that,
but instead I want to share what the kids and I made over the weekend.
The weather has cooled and so baking is a cozy way to heat up the kitchen
and bring the family together.
Pumpkins and leaves and hearts (Rebecca's choice on the hearts,
because they are always in season, right?).
We also turned the large oak leaf cookie around and made ragged looking ghosts,
but you will just have to use your imagination because the ghosts were the first eaten. ha!
The small maple leaf could be a bat if it were turned upside down, but that's for next time.
29 more baking days left until Halloween!
