 Fourth Of July Cupcakes And Crafts

I love celebrating the fourth of July. Teaching the bull the past few years about America and the flag has really given me an appreciation for our country and those who serve. One of the greatest songs that I love to hear is America The Beautiful. As I listen to it and ponder on the words, I thank our Heavenly Father for his blessings He has bestowed upon me and each of us as His children. 

So hold your head up high as we celebrate as a country the fourth. We all are truly blessed and have so much to celebrate as we live here in America, the land of the free. 
God Bless

Boy, don't he look good! I love cupcakes and these red white and blue cupcakes from tidy mom are darling. Below is a great recipe for the perfect cupcake. Its so easy and tasty that know one will know its not from scratch!

Gott'em Fooled Cupcakes

1 box mix - (any flavor but get a good kind. I love me some Duncan Hines!)
3 Large Eggs
1/2 cup butter, melted (use butter not margarine....trust me on this!)
1 cup of water
1t. vanilla extract
Place the butter in the microwave on HIGH for 1 minute or until melted. Allow time to cool so it doesn't cook the egg.
Add cake mix, eggs and water to the butter in large bowl. Add vanilla.
Mix on low for 1 min. Then mix on high for 1 min.
You'll be amazed by your batter looking so thick and creamy.
Fill cupcake papers - tip: use an ice cream scooper- One scoop is just the right amount per cupcake!
Pop them in the oven on 350 for 20 minutes.
