Gobble Gobble

Well happy Black Friday to all of you too! I want to say that I went shopping at 3 am with the rest of the dorks who went to Wal-mart or Old Navy. But, I was in bed. Like a lump, until my SIL called me and woke me up out of a stuffed shell and turkey and cookie induced coma. But today was a good day. Liv and I played beauty parlor, we went to Target (at 4 pm I don't like big crowds!), we hung around. I worked for a while.. but you don't want to hear about that!
You want to know what I did for Thanksgiving - right?!?

Maybe not, but hey here I go anyway!

Well Wednesday during my hectic work day I snuck out and scooped up Elisa and Lissette and brought them back to my parents house. The three girlies stayed there while I worked. They played and played and baked cookies and played some more. When I got home we went to Michael's and bought crafting stuff... here's what we ended up with.. (please don't look around the kids and peek at the mess, it's been a while since i've cleaned!)

And then we finally went to bed!

The next morning I made cupcakes! I used the GF yellow cake mix from Betty Crocker
- it smelled DELISH! I couldn't wait to try them, but first we had to frost them.

I used Cherrybrook Kitchen chocolate frosting mix that my gram picked up from Shaw's for $1.00! This is fantastic stuff!! I love chocolate frosting.. the chocolate flavor could have been a little richer, but this is a nice light chocolate frosting.
Here is what we did. I let them have fun with the sprinkles- can you tell??

We had a GREAT TURKEY DAY- turkey, stuffed shells, rice and beans (after all we are Spanish!) and some minestrone made by yours truly!

And for a peanut-free dessert.. we ate this little guy..
