Cupcakes, Dogs, and Kicking Myself

It’s Saturday morning as I type up this post and I’m currently listening to Christmas music and eating chocolate pancakes. It feels like a good time to blog 😬

The cupcakes that I mentioned in this post went well! My friend’s baby shower was woodland-themed, so I took that and ran with it for the cupcakes.

I made chocolate and vanilla cupcakes and topped most of them with vanilla buttercream and made a bunch of woodland decorations from fondant.

A Sweet Baby Boy Sprinkle

Family and friends gathered at our church on Saturday to celebrate my sister and her soon-to-be-born baby boy with a little sprinkle!

My mom, Hannah’s sister-in-law, and I had such a great time planning this special day. When we found out Hannah was having a boy as her second child, we knew there were a few things she would need since her first child is a girl.

Everyone who was invited was more than excited to gift Hannah all the boy things! From swaddle blankets to sleepers and everything in between, I think she is set and I could not be more happy for her.

Things I don’t want to forget about the big day:

  • Watching Hannah open all the adorable boy clothes and gifts
  • Baking sugar cookies and frosting them with blue buttercream
  • Decorating with my mom and Hannah’s in-law’s before the party
  • Cleaning up afterwards and feeling so happy that my sister was able to have a special day
  • Spending time with friends and family

Ah, what a happy day! I mentioned in my last post that I filmed a little vlog for the big day, which is here.

It feels like just yesterday we were celebrating the impending arrival of Hannah’s baby girl, Caroline! It has been such a joy to watch my sister and her husband become amazing parents to their daughter, and I have no doubt they will do just as well with their son, Lawson ❤
