Tyler's birthday is this week, so he gets to bring a special treat to Preschool. (Gotta love the preschools in people's basements. No worrying about OSHA there!) Anyway, he wanted to make these Mummy Cupcakes. I go back and forth between thinking they're really cute and pretty lame. Oh well. They were easy and now they're done! Now on to his Cars cake for his party.




We also made a trek down to Provo last week to see a BYU volleyball game. Brad and I used to go all the time when we were kidless, penniless, and living in CougarTown. We're still pinching our pennies, so this was a fun cheap family night. Of course we had to tour campus and show Ty and Lauren (who could pretty much care less) where we had different classes and where we lived and where we graduated; where we did the Funky Chicken, and which buildings have the best lounges in the women's bathrooms. We lucked out and were right by the Carrillon Bell Tower at the top of the hour, and that woke our captive audience up! Something must have gotten through to Ty, though, cause he said he wanted to come back every day. Too bad it's over an hour drive, or I would love to, kid.

Lauren wasn't too sure about Cosmo being that close. She warmed up to him later, though.

  6. Love the cupcakes! Laren looks so cute in her "Miss bootiful" outfit (posted below), despite the fact that she didn't really want to pose for you! I have a hard time getting Emma to stay still for pics although she is getting much better these days! Kids, good thing they're cute!

    Miss Lauren is definately Miss Bootiful! Love the way she is making sure Cosmo don't come any closer. Your little man is growing so fast.
