One handed photo shoot

subtitled... bleary eyed blurry pictures

The girls whipped up some Devil's Food cupcakes for Michealmas today and BigBoy decorated them with the only kind of blackberries my kids like... candy ones. (They used extra cocoa and coffee instead of water in the recipe.) I can't tell you how much they are delighting in having the run of the kitchen while my hands are full! 

St. Michael is The Professor's confirmation patron. He asked if he could show off this LEGO minifigure he designed and built. Yep. It's St.Michael.

Again, sorry for the blurry pics. I confess... my other hand was holding a cupcake.



  1. love all your cupcakes. great lego st. michael. can't wait to show my oldest this. no great michaelmas celebrations at our house today. hubby took day off of work to help out and we just had a nice day.

  2. Robina,
    Our cupcakes got made only because I have a 12 year old girl and an almost 11 year old girl who are both thrilled to take over the kitchen from me! Keep snuggling your little one!

  3. Love the lego St Michael!! We made devils food cakes but didn't get the candies this year...we have raspberries, I'm going to pretend they are blackberries!!

    Your cupcakes turned out great!
    I love the cupcake you were holding the best though!

  4. Awww!!! I think the cupcake *you* made was the sweetest! ;)

    But it is awesome to have the kids be able to do some of the cooking and helping out. They did a great job with the cupcakes. Yum!

    My boys where all around me when I pulled up your post and they LOVED your son's St. Michael mini fig. They all just ran upstairs to see if they could duplicate it, lol. :) They need to stop though. My oldest is serving a funeral mass in an hour and he has to get ready.

    God bless you, Charlotte. You continue to be in my prayers.

  5. My boys were very impressed with the Lego St. Michael. The diplomat of the groups started lobbying for a set of Legos including those wings so that we can make our own next year.

    We made angel cut out cookies this year, but I think we just may have to go for the cupcakes next year!

    I would also like a Cupcake like that one in the last photo by next year. Hmmm... better keep praying! :o)

  6. I'm glad to hear you are all doing ok! And the Lego St Michael will definitely be something we work on! We had angel food cake. Oh so original!
