Oh my...

As I mentioned yesterday, I won two contests. The second one was a Valentine's Day contest to win cupcakes from a designer Chicago bakery. I entered, thinking that cupcakes sounded rather tasty just then. Mine was the last entry and I won!

This morning the doorbell woke me up. I won't tell you what time it was because you'll hate me. Besides, most of you know my kids are late sleepers. So I stumble downstairs and open the door. No one is there.

But there was this:


Oooooo...


And then the angels began singing as I uncovered these:

AND these:


Oh my...and you would not believe the flavors!

I think I need to call in reinforcements. The Co-ed and Aunt Denise will be coming for dinner. We'll make it a taste test. Anyone else available?

And there was dry ice to help keep the cupcakes frozen so of course I had to show the kids how cool that stuff looks in water. Yes, I used tongs and no, the kids were not allowed to touch the dry ice. And yes, I giggled like I was six years old again and making pop bottle bombs in the front yard.

Too bad I live over 1500 miles away or we would be there for the taste testing! You have got to tell us the flavors and everyone's opinions. Yummy

That is like a magical moment. Dry ice and all? Serious stuff. It makes enrichment seem trivial. I absolutely am crazy jealous at this very moment. And I will repent tomorrow, but for today, I will be thinking about you and wishing I could grab one of those purple cupcakes. YUM>

Mmmm, that made me really hungry for something good. I sure wish I were in town just about now.

I can see the pictures:0)
They look delicious!
I enlarged the photo.
They looked even better!
So good in fact, that I was compelled to lick the screen......
I'm pretty sure they'll taste better than the dust I just got in my mouth.
