Thursday we made cupcakes but with a little splash of color. I found the recipe in the Family Fun magazine. The girls had a blast watching the batter change color and then layering it into the muffin cups. They were very pretty when they came out of the oven, and they went pretty quick.
After our cupcake making the girls got the markers out and Ruby covered herself with drawings. She had flowers running up and down both arms, octopuses and spiders on her legs and a neon mustache. Emma was covered in scribbles and I asked them who taught them this little trick without hesitation they responded "Grandma Cook."
We have been keeping busy. We try to do something fun each week that gets us out of the house, and I personally have enjoyed getting together with Sarah and letting the kids play while we play hand and foot.
