Christmas Cupcakes

Sparkle and I love to cook and bake together.  I have pictures from when she was about two years old, standing on a chair and helping me cook.  She was learning the names of the vegetables and tasting her fair share of them.  This is a very special time for me with her.  Since we just moved into this much bigger house we are able to cook again together.  The old house we just moved out of was so small and poorly set up in the kitchen that there wasn't any room for her to help me.  So she only was able to help with things that could be moved into the dining room.  We made this work for a year and I am SO thankful to be in the house that we're in. 

Yesterday we made Christmas cupcakes.  We like to make cupcakes for all the holidays.  We missed Halloween this year because we literally just moved into our house a few days before.  There wasn't any time!  Then we moved right into her sister's birthday and Thanksgiving.

(Yes, I already removed the boxtops...)

 Such a big helper!

 I was super excited to find this frosting!!!  Glitter????  You've got to be kidding me!!  I am SO all over that!  But it was very disappointing.  I frosted about 4 cupcakes at over $2 a package.  Boo.  I have to figure out how to make my own.

 We haven't exactly learned graceful sprinkling yet.  But I think these are way more fun anyway.
