"The children were nestled all snug in their beds . . ."


--which is exactly what I have been dreaming about! I am not getting any sleep, but I am getting SO much done.

These cupcakes are for A's class party today. I was trying to avoid anything too Christmas-y since there are quite a few people in her class who don't celebrate Christmas. I thought this struck a good balance--definitely Christmas, but only if you know the Christmas poem that goes with it. We'll call it one of our Christmas secrets.

The idea and instructions for decorating these cupcakes came from one of my favorite books, Hello, Cupcake!. Of course, theirs look much more polished, but I think one of the third grade classes is liking my version just fine right about now!

I have this book too, I have this book too! These are so stinkin cute but I do not possess your patience. So many short cuts this year. I bought the already cut out sugar cookies but I decorated them up all spiffy and wolfed them down. Kids ate em too but I was the main one. Sigh.
