Graduation Cupcakes

We’ve had a big week around here with lots of graduating going on.  All those milestones definitely called for cupcakes.

I loved these graduation cupcakes when I saw them at The Celebration Shoppe.  So simple to make but so cute too.  I always love a fun idea that doesn’t take a million ingredients.

And what were we celebrating?

Eli graduated from eighth grade.  And not just any plain old graduation.  He was given the Silver Scholar Award for having the highest GPA in the school …

… and was named as Valedictorian.  We’re so stinkin’ proud of that kid.  He’s one of the most driven people I’ve ever met.  And a cute athlete, too.  {smile}

And then these little punks graduated from kindergarten.

I just love this picture.  They look like a little old married couple.  They act like one too.

They both loved kindergarten and did so well.  It seems like just yesterday that I was dropping them off and crying all the way home.

See?  We definitely had some cupcake-worthy celebrating to do.  And these cupcakes fit the bill.  My big and little graduates were only too happy to join in the celebration.
