Cupcakes, crayons and CUTS!

Baby J finally made contact with our death-trap hearth. The night before family picture day, I might add! 

A new friend (previous friend of a friend) Jessica drove two hours to take our photos! I will of course link to them once she posts them :) In honor of her visit I made a new recipe for chocolate zucchini cupcakes, with mounds of chocolate buttercream frosting on top.

Best. Cupcakes. Ever.

And on the list of birthday presents for J are a handful of chunky crayons, perfect for little fingers!
Auntie peeled a huge bag of donated crayons and we broke them up and popped them into a mini muffin tray sprayed with oil and then into the oven.

How pretty are they?!

We tried to get him to color with them while picture taking this morning, but he wasn't having it. Ah well, maybe he will be more like his daddy than his mummy :)

I'll leave you with this:

Hope you're having a great Saturday!
