Old Swampy Lives!

I love to make special cupcakes for Bec and Molls birthdays, since I only have to do it two times a year.  This year Becton told me he wanted alligator cupcakes, and thanks to Hello Cupcake by Karen Tack, "Old Swampy" came to life in our kitchen. 

 This book does an amazing job of showing you how to make beautiful cupcakes that are super easy to put together. 
 Are you checking out those banana runt claws? Nice!
Thanks to Lindsay Corrigan for the excellent dental work; there isn't a whole lot you can't make out of marshmallow.

Our Little Herd

For those of you who have a Chick-Fil-A, you may be aware that yesterday was Cow Appreciation Day. I have never gotten into the bovine spirit before, mostly because I usually forget until the day of. This year wasn't much different, except that I was able to throw some costumes together for the kids during nap time. Not. too. shabby.

Bryan and I were going out for a "Big People Dinner" later that night, so we dressed the kids up and let them get their free Chick-Fil-A entrees. I think they're pretty cute, but I am partial.

The Arrival: Becton won't look at the camera because he is afraid the Chick-Fil-A cow he saw standing out at the road is coming to get him. 
 Still on the lookout...
 I mean really... so cute!

 Extra felt and fabric glue= cow jerseys (Not to be confused with Jersey cows ;)

Happy Cow Appreciation Day!
