Movie Night

Tonight we had our movie night. We have been doing a movie night about once a month for a few months now. We rent a kid movie, pop popcorn and cozy up in our jammies and watch our movie. We got this cool stove top popcorn popper for Christmas. We love it! The kids love to watch and listen to the popcorn. Plus it makes the best popcorn.

Here we are in our jammies waiting to start the movie. Maddie was super excited for this particular movie night. Not really sure why... I think it was the popcorn. We rented Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs. It was a cute movie. Sierra was really into it.. she even teared up a little at the sad part (do 4 year olds really do that?)... I think we have a true girl on our hands. It was a fun movie night with a fun movie!

On a side note.. here is a cute picture Sierra drew in bed tonight. A gigantic dragon up in the clouds and snow with the people below. She loves dragons!

Rainbow Cupcakes

Mmm... Don't those cupcakes look so cute, springy and yummy?! The girls and I made rainbow cupcakes today. I got the idea from Family Fun magazine, although it isn't the same as their rainbow cupcakes they had in their latest issue, but it works just the same.

First you make a white cake mix, then divide it out into however many colors you want. I let the girls choose two colors each. Sierra chose purple and pink (surprise, surprise), and Maddie chose orange and green (orange is Maddie's fav).

Then we dished out the batter into the cupcake liners and popped them into the oven.

It sure is cute seeing cupcake pans full of rainbow cupcakes.

Of course we frosted them the same colors. They would be cute with white frosting too, but what is the fun is that?

This was a fun activity and very tasty too! :)

Cutest Show on Earth

ETA: There has been some confusion why I put up a picture of Sierra when I said I went to the circus with Maddie... The very cute tightrope walking clown was Sierra. Her school put on a circus for the parents.

Maddie and I went to a circus today. It was the Cutest Show on Earth! They had lions and tigers jumping through flaming hoops. They had seals balancing balls on their noses and *very* cute tightrope walking clowns. It was quite a show!
