I did it . . .

I am a horrible mother. I hate to bake. My mom likes to bake. She makes a killer chocolate chip cookie, the world's best sugar cookies, breads, cupcakes, and these yummy turtle brownies. I have never liked to bake. I don't even like to do those place n'bake cookies. I usually burn everything because I get caught up in doing something else.

Today after church I came home and fixed lunch and then we took the kids sledding. It was a blast. We had never done that before. They loved it and I enjoyed hearing them squeal with delight. We didn't stay too long because I also enjoy feeling my toes! It was cold!

I came home and began thinking about how horrible it was that my kids had never been sledding before. I took McCartney in the kitchen and we made cupcakes. Cupcakes people! Call your neighbors, alert the media. Sheri baked! AND I made homemade icing, we even colored it. You may ask, "Why did you not have to go to the store. If you never bake why did you have a cake mix, cupcake liners and confectioners sugar?" Well, I always have good intentions! The cake mix actually expires next month. Do you know how long those things are good for? It must have been in that cabinet for a LONG time. I think the cupcake liners may have been around since I was in high school last month. *giggle*

Anyway, I think my mother status is improving. Don't hold your breath. . .

I updated our family picture blog if you are interested.

Looks like it was fun! I am not a baker either. But I like to eat it! JB baked today, too so I kind of helped by putting frosting on cupcakes. That is pretty close to baking isn't it? Your cupcakes look deliciously fabulous!

Holy stink Amber! I;m heading over to your blog as I type! Good to see you too! Our Goodwills rock don't they?

Me too. I am lame at baking. Cooking I love. Baking not so much. Too much work if you ask me. I'd rather do a pinch of this and that any day.

You did a great job on those cupcakes!

Loved the pics!

They look yummy. They'd go really well with coffee. I wish I lived closer. :-)

Don't beat yourself up. When on earth would you have time to be Martha Stewart? Work, 3 kids, a husband. Some things, you just have to let go of. Your cupcakes look good!

You crack me up with your drive and ambition to be the perfect mother, when you already are.

You are there for your kids 100% of the time. The fun stuff is simply the icing on those yummy looking cupcakes.

You are a great mother Sheri, handpicked by God for your specific three!
