Shall we move on from Christmas?
I swear, you'll never hear from me much at the new year, regardless of my well-meaning resolutions. I not only have Christmas and New Year's to recover from, but my wedding anniversary and both of my children's birthdays are mixed in there as well. Elijah's LAN party was a week ago and Charlotte's party is this weekend. Her requested theme: Legendary. She wants to have a "Legendary" party.
Who doesn't, right?
So, Legendary, it is. Sounds like a tall order. I guess that's what you get from a kindergartener with a crazy vocabulary. However, I do believe her 5–year-old imagination is conjuring dragons and elves, not preeminent perfection. Thank goodness for that. Have I ever mentioned that her first word was "dignity"? No joke! She was only nine-months-old.
Gooey chocolate cupcakes were a big success at Elijah's party -- truly, the easiest way to serve birthday cake. So, I'm going for cupcakes again for Charlotte. Above is my easy solution for exquisite cupcakes. Isaac's sister, Evie, shared this trick when she visited a while back. Always a big hit. The cupcakes, and Evie.
