Elmo Cup Cakes & Halloween Weekend

So Friday was Logan's 2nd birthday.  And what a weekend it was.  He was sick, but started getting better by late in the day Friday.  His poor brother was not so lucky.  He got this mess and wasn't better until yesterday.  And it wouldn't be complete if dh and I didn't catch the crud and we were up all night Sunday night.  Fortunately we were all over our stuff in time to be able to take my oldest son to a few houses for Trick or Treating. It was a tame Halloween.  DH is still on the mend and I feel like I'm at about 95%.  I think once we get some more rest that will help. 

I wanted to share a few pictures of the Elmo cupcakes I made for Logan's party.  I saw this idea at a cupcake shop and thought I could make them too.  As cute as these were, my child wouldn't even take a bite of them.  He is more of a Chips A Hoy connoisseur.  So momma gave him two of those.  Because everyone should have something they like on their birthday.

 Crazy me with my pumpkin master's kits. I was able to get the pumpkins carved before I got sick.

My son, Sawyer was Thomas.  He was so cute and very excited about ringing doorbells.

 Sawyer had taken his costume off, but Logan is a member of Lightning McQueen's pit crew. 
This picture pretty much sums up Logan's thoughts of Halloween. He was constantly screaming and didn't want to wear his costume, hold the candy bucket. Nothing.  Hopefully next year will be better.

This was our huge pumpkin. The cat turned out really cool, I just wish I'd thought to have the pattern blown up on a copier one size bigger.  This one was actually not as hard as the other stencil.

So that is a recap of our birthday and Halloween celebrations.  Did you or your kids dress up? I'd love to hear about your Halloween celebrations. 

Hope you are having a great day in your neck of the woods.
