An "Off" Day

We all had a bit of an off day today. We're sort of funky lately. Not ourselves. Physically, mentally, emotionally, etc. Doesn't help that this is the view most days. Gloomy. Dark. Depressing. Spring cannot get here soon enough.
So today I thought I would try to cheer us up with some fun in the kitchen. These cupcake mixes were on sale for $1 at K-Mart last week and I picked up a few to have on hand. I thought today would be a good cupcake day.
I gave Ish a mixing bowl and spoon and he pretended to stir as I mixed the batter.
After letting Ish help me with the hand mixer, we poured our batter and baked our cakes.
We had some leftover frosting from Super Bowl Sunday on hand.
And I had some yummy snacks on hand for the 20-minute baking wait. These are almost as good as Girl Scout cookies and a lot less fattening! We pick them up at the Christmas Tree Shop every time we go.
Ish distracted himself with coloring as we waited for the stove timer to beep.
And when it did, we frosted.
And after dinner, we feasted.

Now, if we can just get a bit of sunshine to pop on through, we'll be alright!
