We got a little silly around here lately, trying to lighten the mood a bit by testing out our chocolate mustache molds. I picked them up at the craft store over the holidays (mainly because most of the men on Matthew's side of the family have real ones; I prefer the chocolate variety), and to my surprise, my mom purchased the same ones.
Hayden and I were the only ones bold enough to pose for chocolate mustache pics (you can't make chocolate mustaches without taking a photo with them). I had hoped to get Jacob and Matthew in the shot as well, but 2 out of the 4 of us isn't bad (oh, and you can see Matthew's hand helping Hayden place her mustache in exactly the right place).
Okay, Hayden and I do look a little crazy with these things (which explains the fact that I'm blushing, literally, with embarrassment in the first pic; my skin isn't always that bright pink color). Thank goodness we can't actually grow one. We just wanted to start the new year on a fun note.
Hope all of you are having fun, too. Have a happy new year from us to you! :-)
In case you missed it, here are some of my recent posts:
- One more naughty treat before the new year (if you're not on a cleanse, this cupcake is still worth celebrating)
- VegNews inspires Santa's cookie surprise (and you'll like these hidden gems, too, which are the inspiration for the even more indulgent cupcake)
- "Hot chocolate warms you up" (get this yummy recipe from Hayden to warm you up, as the temperatures drop; we are going to be in the 30s this week. Brrr!)
- Santa is in need of some elves (we've been raw cupcake posting and doing silly things, as promised; the contest was extended until the end of January, so there's still time to help - thanks to all who have).
