Cupcakes Gone Astray

This Spring I found a tutorial for some adorable sheep cupcakes.  I couldn’t wait to make them for Easter!  What says “Spring” more than cute little lambs?  cupcake1

I whipped up a batch and showed the Munchkins how to decorate the top, then I left them to it.   

When I came back, I found this:cupcake4

Apparently, I have very creative children.

Of (flying) Mice and Men


The kids and I built a bonfire in the backyard last night.  After we cooked hot dogs and snarfed down s’mores, we licked the last of the sticky mess off of our fingers and settled back in our chairs to watch the dusky blue sky fade to twilight.

All around us we could hear night animals beginning to wake up.

“Maybe we’ll see a bat,” I ventured.  It’s always a treat to see a bat in our yard, flitting about the sky.  So far this year, we hadn’t.

“There’s a star,” Miss Munchkin suddenly pointed.  “Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight.  I wish I may, I wish I might have this wish I wish tonight.”  She paused, lost in hopes and dreams.

“Wish for a bat!” The Master suggested hopefully.

Remember this little lady?  She was the star of my very first newborn photoshoot.


She went on to be slightly famous when Ree gave this picture a shout out on her blog.



Well, guess who just turned one?  I was so glad that her mother asked me to document the happy occasion.  Miss Margo is just as laid back and sweet as she was as a newborn but it’s fun looking back and seeing how much she’s physically changed in the last year!

This was my first 1-year Photoshoot.  She and her mother made it entirely delightful.


This is the same pink headband that she had on when she was a newborn.  Awwww….



Happy Birthday Margo Mae.  I love watching you grow!
