Yep, more cupcakes. The photo shows half of them with frosting, half without. The idea of these is chocolate on the bottom with a kind of cheesecakey layer (with choc chips) on top. I think they're a little rich for me - the chocolate in particular is really dense. But Alex likes them... Girls are both at "sleepovers" (not sure why the word sleep is in the name of that social event!) but I'm sure they'll return a verdict tomorrow...

Sometimes the kids make cool things at school, home, or in this case, Guides. This week, they took empty plastic soda bottles and made animals from them with coloured foam and then put glowsticks inside. They are really cute. Olivia's lion shows up better than Sarah's penguin, but both look really good in real life...

More cupcakes this afternoon (too cold to go anywhere, though the girls did go play out in the snow - Alex, on the other hand, didn't want to and I don't blame him as it didn't get above freezing the whole day and was quite windy). These are the vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting. Very nice and moist. Green icing was Alex's choice, but it's pretty - and lots of lovely "frinkles".

Although it seems to have stopped now, it was really snowing hard on the way home from school - as you can tell, you can't even see the far side of the field!
It took forever to get the kids home - they wanted to stay and build snowmen, etc. Personally, I was really cold and just wanted to go home...
