My husband has a deep and abiding love for coconut. He probably developed that while he was a missionary in Fiji. It really is one of his favorite flavors. As luck would have it, I found a recipe for coconut cream cupcakes on the morning of his birthday. Score! They were fabulous! To give you an idea of just how fabulous these cupcakes are, his birthday was a month ago and I have made them three times since then. I'm just going to copy and paste the recipe as shown on www.carrottopmom.com. I'll use my own pictures and let you know how it went for me. It was my first time making cupcakes from scratch.

I knew going into it that building a house would be no small undertaking, but wow. Just wow. I had assumed I would blog a little bit in the evenings after we got home and put the girls to bed. Ha! We put the girls to bed, plop down for a second, put the girls back to bed and finally just collapse into our own beds once we've got them down. The baby, in particular, isn't doing well with being put to sleep. She insists on being held. I'm working on letting her cry it out. It's not going well.
