Turkey Cupcakes

How do I get myself into these things?I can NEVER say no! I have A LOT to do tonight! Pack for our trip, laundry, ironing, Anna's spelling pre-test, get Lindsay to bed, clean my house and countless other things! What am I doing? Making Turkey Cupcakes for 2 classes!!
I got the new book, "Hello, Cupcake" at Costco a while back... C-U-T-E!!! Their turkey cupcakes involved small cupcakes on top of big ones and cookies for tails with candy corn "glued on" with frosting.......Uh, not this time for me! Here is my VERY simplified version! They are the "get by" cupcakes for this year's Thankful parties at school. (There is an "Anna" Montana concert going on in my family room RIGHT NOW, Shae and Scott are at the semi-final game 2 hours away and I am feeling the "Mommy stress" of getting ready to leave town-so these will have to do).
Hope you have lots to be "Thankful" for today like I do! I am so blessed to be able to be a Mommy, use my hands, be going on a vacation with my whole family, hear the precious singing voices in the other room, smell the sweet smell of goodies in the oven and make my daughters happy to bring cupcakes to school tomorrow! (I can sleep on the plane! :-}.

*update on the girl's volleyball game: They lost :( But they made it all the way to the semi-finals and made this 1st place team work hard! Great Season Lady Lions! (and phew, no more practices and now we can eat dinner together again!!) {yeah!}

Sleep on the plane and lounge by the pool basking in the sun as much as possible!!!

The cupcakes are adorable, I am going to look for that cookbook at Costco!

Can't wait to see if you are able to blog from Mexico!

Oh my, if those are the easy cupcakes, I would hate to see the hard ones! They are absolutely adorable! That cupcake book sounds like a great gift idea...wonder if they still have it?

Have a great trip!

Very cute cupcakes! I'm gonna look for the cupcake book too!

The book is called "Hello Cupcake" and I saw it at Target today!

Denise, you can use one of your shower gift cards!!

Wouldn't it make a cute gift for friends for Christmas?

The cupcakes are adorable even though there were a million other things to do! I understand the feeling! The girls will always have good memories of how you made everything so special for them! I am not sure you will get much sleep on the plane with all our kids! I say we let the guys play with the kids one day next week and we sneak off somewhere. I may just be on the other side of the pool sound asleep on a lounge chair! (wishful thinking, I know)!

I am wondering if we will have internet access down there. If so, maybe I can get caught up on some blogging since I do not have much time for it. Gavin just went to bed so I am off to finish packing!

I love the cupcakes and would make them if we were allowed to bring home-made things to school!! Everything has to be store bought and packaged. But, I'm thinking they would be a fun thing to do with the kids this week...
