Well, if no one else loves them, my kids sure do.

My boys love cupcakes and I wonder why?
They go for the frosting first and then devour the cake, leaving crumbs everywhere. As much as I despise the mess, I love the smiles. It's really true what they say...
Cupcakes Make You Happy!

I have been trying to get Finn to say cupcake for months. The other day I had cupcakes cooling in the kitchen and he pointed and said, "cupcake"! I was so excited, I got that choked up feeling in my throat. I can't get that kid to eat anything else, hence the chubby cheeks!
Ethan doesn't just call them cupcakes, he refers to them as "cupcake chic's". That's my boy! Keep on selling for me kiddo!

Trick Or Treat

It was really fun taking the boys trick or treating this year. The weather couldn't have been more perfect! 

I took Ethan to the ward trunk or treat and he got a bucket full of candy. We went home, dumped it out and headed out for REAL trick or treating! Finn pooped out early, but Ethan on the other hand was a die hard! He was running door to door getting lots of treats. We were having a hard time getting him to say "Trick-r-treat", so we threatened that we would have to go home if he didn't say it. Poor shy Ethan was trying so hard, but he couldn't get it out until after they shut the door. He's hilarious!

After a while, Ethan was starting to get tired, but Matt & I were not satisfied with the amount of candy he had in his bucket........we needed more! So we kept going. Ethan was lagging behind now, saying things like, "my hands and legs are hurt" and "just one more?" as in, is this the last one? Finally after " mommy, my legs can't walk anymore" we let him give up.  Yep! Ethan was a trooper and I know he is enjoying all that candy he worked so hard for!
