Do You Know What These Are?

Happy Weekend Apron Goddesses!

We celebrated my son's birthday today and I just HAD to share the cupcakes I made. I love the pirate cupcake liners I found in the grocery store. They really saved me and provided a great base on which to plan the colors of the frosting.

I went all out and did a chocolate and vanilla cupcake, filling part of the liner with each mix. Then I did a cream cheese frosting and mixed orange and white frosting to get a swirl effect.

Those frosting sleeves (frosting applicator tubes) are not as easy to use as you'd think. I made quite a mess, but I persevered. And I think Wyatt loved his cupcakes. Maybe his friends too!

What else do we do at our house during a party?

Well it pretty much comes down to John Deere.

The John Deere lawn mower that is.

We let the kids take turns driving around our property towing the other kids in a little wagon.

Then the next kid gets a chance. They all get to drive a big loop around our five-acre property.

I think everyone had a fun time.

Well that's what I like to think! I liked this photo because if you knew nothing else, based only on the teeth it's easy to age these little women! They've got the six year old smile!
