cupcakes and baby pies

busy weekend!  A sleep over on friday night with Torry Pie!  We had great conversations about the moon and planets.  he is pretty convinced that the moon is hot and you can never touch it or you will ger burned.  I showed him pictures on line of the moon and of astronauts walking on the moon.  he was very curious and would have looked at pics forever I think!  It was pretty funny.  He stayed over so that his mommy and daddy could get up early to help Jennifer move on saturday morning.  
Then, Saturday afternoon we went over to jens new place to help out a little bit and to help take care of Violet pie!  She is so stinking cute.. I can hardly stand it.  this is one of Vanessa's pictures of her.  she has the cutest little smiles for only 10 weeks old!    Saturday was also Ellas birthday so I made a birthday cake and took presents over.. but my camera battery was dead!!  no pics!
Sunday started out with Grocery shopping, then Tiffany and MArlaina came over to make faux valentine cupcakes and then Marla pie spent the night with grammie.  she is the funniest little thing!  so sweet.. OMG!! I love her to pieces!  she is such a little snuggle bug!  I love that first thing in the morning.. she just wanted to cuddle for as long as I would.. where torry on the other hand got up and was like.." hey, Im up!  lets go in the kitchen and eat and play!"

I do have the sweetest little grand pies!  sweet little things!  
I am very blessed
Cant end my post with out showing the cupcakes we made...
Here are a couple pics.  mine are the first set,
 Tiffanys are the second. 

I thought they all turned out cute.   I tried to make a kitty like Diane Mars makes..   NOT even Close!  
how does she make hers so stinking cute!?  

Anyways.. that was pretty much my weekend.  I met Rob and tiff halfway this afternoon to return the princess pie then came home and have done pretty much nothing.  It was a nice three day weekend though.

Tomorrow its back to work.. and back to the single digit temps.  BRRRR!
have a great week!

Hi Viv,
It sounds like you had a great weekend. Ours was pretty quiet. I did some crafting and today we went for a walk. I'm afraid it will be the last one for awhile. Cold again!

The cupcakes look great, Vivian! I have got to try this myself. I think I'd have a ball making them. Although, I think my granddaughter would get upset when I try to explain they are not real. : ) It sounds like you had a fun weekend. The plan is for me to have my granddaughter over on Wednesday night and I am supposed to babysit Thursday anyway so it should work out all the way around. They have such nice conversations at this young age, don't they? I really enjoy listening to my granddaughter and having a conversation with her. We do okay for a 3 year old and a 50 year old. : )

I don't know what you're talking about Vivvie Pie.......your kitten is every bit as cute as Diane's. However, until I have my own grandchildren, I'll have to agree that yours are pretty stinkin' cute. That smile on Violet is amazing....she's definitely going to be a mischievous little thing.

Big Hugs,

YOur little grands are so darned cute, Viv. Aren't they just the best thing in the world? Wrap your heart and soul right around their little finger. Love it. Those cupcakes are amazing, Viv. Is there a tutorial somewhere on them on a blog or something somewhere? Of course, YOU are the QUEEN of those sweet confections. You are AMAZING and pure artist, Viv.

Okay-Putting SweetCheeks to bed here-she has been here a couple of days and will be here one more. She's been sick -we are waiting for her culture to come back to see if she has strep or not. I HOPE not! Hope you had a good day at work- xo Diana
