Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Tristen makes cupcakes...........

A simple way to entertain a child......well not so much, but enjoy it he did. I made the batter while Tristen and Gabby were playing with the play dough. He soon figured out what I was doing and was right there to help and advise. I managed to get the batter into the paper liners despite all the fingers in the way.


After that, and the cakes were in the oven, it was time for Tristen to help with the clean up. This he was very happy to do.




So the bowls were half way clean by then, and the cakes were out of the oven and cooling off.
So now while they cool we wash the dishes and he was really really happy to do that.




Then its frosting next.......that done its time to try the end product. This he did willingly enough and more than once.






He managed two before I realized that he was more interested in the frosting. He tried to pass the cake off to the poodles, they didnt care for it because it was lemon.


A fun afternoon for a small boy and little effort on my part because I used a mix (hehe) and ready made frosting.
