Geaux Tigers!

I am 1/3 the way through my 21 day prayer and fast.  I shared that I am fasting from so much computer time.  I could do better but I am trying to limit my time on here.  I just wanted to check in and say hello and GEAUX TIGERS!  Our LSU Tigers will be playing tomorrow night against Alabama for the National Title.  Of course we are soooo excited and are feeling very proud of our team.  We have 2 players from our home town and that makes it even more fun and exciting.  Tomorrow at school we can wear our "favorite" college shirt. So I've pulled out my LSU shirt and have it ready to go.  Also, our DIBELS Team (you elementary teachers know what I'm talking about) will be eating lunch together tomorrow as we begin our Mid-Year DIBELS testing.  My lunch assignment was to make cupcakes and they had to be Purple & Gold.  This is what I came up with.........

I made my favorite chocolate cake recipe but made it into cupcakes.  Then made my mother's yummy Cream Cheese Frosting and added a sprinkle of gold sugar on top for the Honey Badger!
(Will gladly share the recipes)

I made toppers with what I had on hand.  I have several punches that I use and cut card stock with those punches.  I used a 2 5/16" scallop punch for the gold, a 2" scallop punch for the purple and then I printed out LSU using my computer and cut that with a 1 1/2" circle punch. 

I also had a small fleur de lis punch that I used.  I glued the circles together and hot glued a lollipop stick on the back.  I had some yellow fancy cupcake liners that I put the cupcakes in after I finished everything.
So a little fun for the big game day!

I am behind on Sloan's monthly onesies :(  But I did finish #10 and will put it in the mail tomorrow.  Sloan will be 1 Year old next month!

I have made one of these for each month and we are almost at the end.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week. 
I hope LSU has a great win!
And I'll see you in another week!
