Science Fair

J. participated in his first science fair last week.  He decided to make paper airplanes and test them to see which flies the furthest.  In addition to the planes, he made random paper "shapes" to see which of those would got further.

We had fun making, testing, and measuring his objects...

Spring Treat

Our ward's "Spring Fling" was last night and I was lucky enough to be able to make some cupcakes to share.  They requested that they be decorated for spring and since Easter is around the corner, I thought I'd throw some of that in too :)

I usually decorate a whole batch  exactly them same but I was having too much fun experimenting.  ( Does anyone have insights on how to draw a CUTE bunny face?  Mine seem to be 'lacking' in that department... LOL!)

I think these egg ones are my favorite.  Could it be because delicious, chocolaty Cadbury eggs are the centerpiece?  Perhaps - perhaps not...I can't decide.  (Curse you Cadburry for making such yummy Easter treats!)

You all should make cupcakes for Easter too. It's super fun AND easy!  If you make them, post them in your blog (if you have one) so everyone can see.
