Did you catch that today is 1/11/11?  Holy loads of freakin' karma.

I didn't notice the fateful date til about half an hour ago, but when I saw it, it all started to make sense.

Today has been the greatest of ordinary days. By the time Reese woke up at 9:00AM, I was dressed and ready for the day {even pulled out the lipstick - cue pat on back}, scriptures and prayer checked off the list, laundry in the washer, and bathrooms cleaned.

ALL my jobs were done before the little rug rat had a chance to rise and shine. Talk about a morning victory.

And then it just got better. As we were eating breakfast I thought, "Hey, why not just whip out a batch of cupcakes this morning?" And then we did.

And then Reese helped measure all the dry ingredients.

And then she thought she was spiffier than a flap jack in May. {what??}

And then I decided baking with toddlers is approximately 5.72 times messier than normal.

And then I also decided baking with toddlers is approximately 11.44 times more fun than normal.

{before the mess was made}

The result of our morning efforts:

And all frosted and ready to go by noon. What the heck was in my milk this morning? Apparently something that did my body good. {wa wa waaaaaaaaaahhh....}

And I promise this will be the last post for at least a week that has to do with baking. But ummm, guys, that's just what I do up here. What else am I going to do with all my free time?

The next day of luck? 11/11/11.

Oh the kismet you are destined to bring.  Luck be a lady indeed.

sounds like an adventure and I wish I had that kind of energy. I'm not sure how much of it has to do with the date as it has to do with the person. You are always full of energy! The cupcakes look fabulous and I took your word and bought the bread pans you told me aobut, now I get to make bread that looks as good as yours!
