Swifts got Talent

First thing, check out these awesome cupcakes I just finished making.  As part of one of my gifts i got a cupcake recipe book and these were in it.  I think they are so cool.  The cupcake is baked into the cone.  They were really easy too.  Then I added a cream cheese frosting on top and some extra candy canes.  They are really good.  I can't wait until my kids are old enough to bring treats to school for birthdays because I think these are prefect for that.  Tucker keeps asking for ice cream even though he already had one and knows there is no ice cream on it.

Now to the point.  I finished putting together the video for the Annual Swift Annual Christmas Talent show.  Although we didn't have as many participants this year I think everyone enjoyed it.  I especially thought tucker was funny because he was so adamant on doing a robot dance but then when he got up in front of everyone he barely moved.  We also had a few participants on skype who I wasn't able to record. Next time bob and I will have to do a practice run though because we had some last second technical difficulties.  But everyone was patient and it all worked out. 

I mentioned before Christmas that i was excited about two of the gifts i was giving.  Now that they have been given I thought I'd post about them.
I had so much fun looking for the letters and taking pictures of them.  And I am really happy with how they turned out.  I want to make one for myself but woestman just has too many letters.  I even have an extra 6 photo picture frame maybe i can come up with something to put in it.

If you don't want to wait for a birthday at school, we can come over for a party for the ice cream cake cones. :)

The name pictures are awesome! Tucker has 6 letters in his name.

Leighton doesn't get how you and Bob did that dance. We all laughed though. That was great. Ward talent show.....

I love the picture frames. I took pictures like that while we were at my parents house in Michigan over the summer... but yeah our last name is so long I would have to do individual picture frames. So I just haven't done anything with them yet. You have inspired me to pull out those pictures and use them!
