Sponge Bob cupcakes by Cupcake Chic

I had an order this last weekend that requested Sponge Bob cupcakes for a birthday party. I normally don't do theme cupcakes, but I thought these turned out kind of cute.

Ethan wanted donuts this morning.....

So we made some!

Ethan suggested wearing an apron. What a cute little baker.

Ethan mixing in the eggs and butter.

Taste test! 

Getting every last bit
The final product, chocolate donuts with strawberry frosting. Ethan picked out the sprinkles, can you tell? Such beautiful colors!

Another girls trip! My mom, my sisters and I went to Chicago to visit my cousin Jill and my Aunt Karen. Can I just say that I had the time of my life! I can't believe the damage we can do in just 2 days! We ate and shopped our legs off. We had Chicago style pizza, the best steak in the city and some Gumbo, New Orleans style. Of coarse, we had to stop at all three of the local cupcakeries! When we got home we all sat around the table and tasted each and every flavor. I have to say they were a bit disappointing!

If you know any of us very well, you know that we are absolutely psycho crazy about H&M. We are in there for hours when we shop, as you can see in the pictures. Love it, love it, love it!

Saturday night, we were trying to decide what to do. If you didn't know already, New Kids On The Block are back! Saturday night they happened to be in concert in Chicago! We scrambled to get tickets and found some on ebay! It was crazy! All girls or woman MY age everywhere plastered in NKOTB paraphernalia! I felt like I was 8 years old again. I loved it. It is by far the best concert I have ever been to. As soon as I got home, I down loaded all of there new and old songs. That's right girls........ Hangin' Tough, You've Got The Right Stuff, Step By Step....I know you are singing it right now! I have to admit, I still have a crush on Donnie!

Thank you Jill for letting me visit and taking me to see everything!   I LOVE CHICAGO!

I have the craziest kids in the world!

Matt and I decided we needed to get the boys a sand box for the back yard. It's an awfully small backyard and they needed something fun to do back there. I thought to myself, "this is perfect, something they could do together". I was so excited to just boot them out the back door and have the house quiet and calm for a few minutes.

Well, there is a reason Ethan looks a little worried........
There was screaming and crying and this is what I found.........Yeah Finn, Uh-Oh is right!
Water and sand EVERYWHERE! I should have known better. If they fight constantly inside, why wouldn't they outside. 
I think Ethan was trying to exfoliate Finn's face with the sand and water.

Ethan smiling in relief after seeing me laugh instead of get mad. 
I had to strip both of them down before I could bring them back in the house. 

Matt and I went to see Journey to the Center of the Earth in 3-D. These are the glasses that we brought home. My boys will play with anything but toys!

Ethan came down stairs the other day dressed like this. He was claiming to be a monkey. He's nuts!
