Whoopie! Kat got a new mixer - Moxie the Mixer is what she's called. We christened Moxie yesterday and whooped up batch of adorable Pumpkin Whoopie Pies!

Isn't she beautiful! Kat AND Moxie the mixer!

Mixing made unbelievably easy!

The cookies turned out moist and spongy - yummy!

A little cream cheese, lots of butter and 1 jar of mallow creme later - it's time to stuff these puppies.

And voila - aren't they cute?! Whoopie!

Besides whooping it up with Kat, life is full of xmas shopping, 8th grade girls bball coaching, falling in love with my recent book club book - The Elegance of the Hedgehog - just finished it last week and I think it's going to be added to my top 10 list, and brainstorming my next book club book pick - so far, these are the front runners - The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lack, Let the Great World Spin, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The History of Love.

Happy week to ya! Hope it's full of making progress on your xmas shopping, neighborhoods sparkling with holiday lights and peppermint hot cocoa sipping!

Oooh Lisa, I hope you get a mixer for Christmas! And Sadina - have so much fun with yours!!

Kat - I'm still basking in the deliciousness of our yummy treats! Give Moxie another pat on the back for me!
