Cupcake Family Tree

Today we celebrated Matt's grandmother's 80th birthday. Gran is so special, and the girls and I wanted to do something fun for her to remember. Then I saw a cupcake book at Erin's and knew immediately what I wanted to do. The final decision--a cupcake family tree. We did a separate cupcake for each family member, and though the cupcakes didn't really bear a striking resemblance to anyone, it was still a lot of fun.

Here it is--Gran and Grandpa's family

Gran and Grandpa. (I love Gran's glasses.)

Pat and Sarah's family. (Owen is my favorite.)

I got a little carried away with Sarah's hair.

Gigi and G-Pops.

Jeb eating his cupcake self.

Our family. Belle's hair is a little big, too. I think I captured Matt's likeness though!

What a crew. (This was taken after LOTS of playing...hence the sad-like appearance of the children.) HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GRAN! We hope you had a great one.

Glad they turned out so good! The eyes didn't even need m&m's. Such a cute idea.

I really wish I could have been there. The cupcakes are super cute! Who got to eat Aaron and me?

Dru ate Aaron. I think Cupcake Suzy is still alive!
