Mini pumpkin muffin treats dunked in a wonderful maple glaze that leaves them moist, sweet, and delicious for the upcoming Fall mornings.
It’s September y’all! Where did the summer go? I know I was a little busy with a new baby and all, but I am still having trouble believing it’s already time for…
I don’t mind though. I love all the goodies and comfort that Fall brings. It marks the start of the holiday season, which I can’t ever wait for every year!
I feel like our family has definitely started out fresh and new for the season. We spent the entire weekend rearranging and swapping the kids’ bedrooms. We did a full circle switch. Everyone seems to be very excited with their new spots. My two little ones will be sharing a room once we move little Landry to his crib in a month or so. A toddler bed, baby bed, dresser, toy box, kiddie table, a ton of baby dolls, and a toy kitchen doesn’t leave a whole lot of room. At least they’ll be cozy, right? I guess we’ll see how it goes!
Speaking of cozy…I want to share these delicious little pumpkin jewels. They are so perfect for Fall breakfasts and lunchbox treats.
So go ahead and welcome September with a bang and make pumpkin muffins!
