December Madness Begins

The frenzy that is December in my household has begun. It's my favorite month, and so I've subconsciously worked to squeeze nearly every important event into that month. I've got an anniversary (ok, I chose that one, but originally it was supposed to be September) and two kids birthdays. One of those was supposed to be January, but I involuntarily scrambled some eggs in a magic potion and now he's a December baby...

Anyway - I've got presents bought and wrapped for Red's birthday tomorrow. I ordered a cake, but somehow committed to baking treats for school tomorrow. I'm still not sure how that happened. The next couple of weeks will be a blur of Christmas concerts, holiday hula shows (because everyone does that, right?), Christmas parties, baking, shopping, wrapping, and trying to remember the real reason I'm celebrating *all* of it.

Here's a preview of the cupcakes I'm hoping to pull off for tomorrow*

Also, here's a fun link to the underground caves, dungeon, and apparently bowling alley found under Nottingham. Red really couldn't ask for a better birthday present than that. She's in love with both Robin Hood and archeology. And I'm pretty happy too, because now maybe she won't move to Egypt.

*Compliments of my friend Katrina, the brilliant baker, who inspires me with her recipes.

Best of luck on everything Robin... it's the crazy-busy season!! Hey, at least you can learn from my flops with the cupcakes.

Okay the cupcakes made me hungry the second I saw them- and it is 6:30 in the morning- and wow! I didn't know Robin Hood bowled!!!

Yeah, I'm feeling a little thwarted. I will make these, but I think it's gonna be over Christmas break. Right now I've got chocolate cupcakes cooling and am embarking on some peanut butter frosting from Ina Garten...
