Trunk or Treat

Well Trunk or Treat ended up more like Table or Treat because of rain, rain, and even more rain. We had a very wet night and ended up inside... that didn't ruin our fun though. We had a great turnout and lots of fun. I think the adults had just as much fun decorating as the kids did getting the candy. Here are a few pictures of our 'tables'...
Rachel and Addison at the farm... The sign says "Caution, some animals may bite"

Lydia and her friend down on the farm

Bill and Janice with their Fall Fest theme... and lots and lots of candy!

Ms. Debbie, or the flower child

Snow and Iron Man, our greeters

Burt and Ernie passing out some free Frosty coupons

Dr. Seuss inspired table... The Cat in the Hat, Cindy Lou Who, and Thing One and Two

Uncle Si is happy, happy, happy

Mark and I, the tourists at the beach... Watch out for the shark!

Somewhere over the rainbow this brother and sister actually get along

Duck Dynasty & Camo Cupcakes

For the season premier of Duck Dynasty, one of Mark's new favorite shows and the show if which we have a son he will be named after, I made Mark some camo cupcakes that I found on Pinterest. 
 First I mixed a vanilla cake mix and a chocolate cake mix. Then I separated the mixes and added green food coloring to create the camo effect. For the lighter green I used the vanilla mix with 13 drops of food coloring. The nasty green was vanilla cake mix, some chocolate mix, and 10 drops of food coloring. The lighter brown was a combination of vanilla and chocolate mix. The darker was chocolate mix and some blue and green food coloring. 
 Then I dropped the mix into the cups using a spoon. A dollop of one color, then another. Once full, I marbled them using a toothpick. 
 For this pan I used smaller drops and left them alone. I think this worked best!
 This is how they turned out after the came out of the oven.

They turned out both cute, although Mark will argue that camo isn't cute, and delicious and we enjoyed our night. I do have to admit I love this show too! And yes, if we have a boy his name is Jase!
