Homemaking Tip - Sweet Things

Last week when Grace and Henry came to stay I got to rock Henry a lot.  He loves to be held close and is so content when he is.  I think he looks just like a little smurf in this outfit.  He is such a sweet baby.

For Grace's birthday she helped me make Idaho Spud Cupcakes.

Last bit of evidence of a week filled with sweet things.

They are such a good cupcake.  We baked them in baking cups instead of cupcake papers and it made a huge difference in how moist they were (we made a few in cupcake papers for comparison).  From now on I'm going to start baking fancy cupcakes in baking cups.

Rocking content babies and moist cupcakes.  Life doesn't get much sweeter.

But then somehow it does . . .

 . . . because last night our kids called and told us to go to Lowe's and pick up a new dishwasher that they ordered for us as an early Mother's and Father's Day present.  So not only did I get to rock a sweet baby often and eat moist cupcakes last week, we have a working dishwasher today.

Calvin summed it up in this text, "you guys are the best.......I don't think you can get any better and then you do something like this.......thank you.....I love all of you......."

Sweet, sweet things.  All of them.

A new dishwasher!!!?!?!?! I don't believe it! Now that is a true gift! You'll have to post the recipe (or did you and I missed it?). I wish I could hold Henry all day! So cute!

It must be surreal to sit and snuggle your grandson like that.

I've been wondering about those baking cups. I ordered some for my secret pal awhile ago because she's big into making cupcakes but she wasn't sure how to use them. Do you have to do anything different?

I wish my kids would buy us a new dishwasher!

I almost bought some fancy, schmancy baking cups at TJ Maxx the other day. After your review I wish I had. Next time I will be sure to snag them.

P.S. Baby Henry is adorable.
