Tangled Webs

"I would eat a real bug. Sure enough I would, they're yummy!" ~Lila


I made spider cupcakes for my Young Women's handout today. The lesson was on Avoiding Dishonesty. I used the quote by Sir Walter Scott "Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!" Lila helped me make a spider after church and lets just say, she LOVED it!!

go Hooper Tomato Days!

Very cute, Em! I am positive Lila had so much fun helping you make them, and I am also sure that she truly would eat a real bug. That Lila is just so funny!

Shawnee said...

OK, so I'm pretty sure you must be the best YW leader ever! Your handouts are AMAZING! Way to go!

Mindy said...

These cupcakes were not only adorable but so delicious! And like always you did an awesomely fantastic lesson.

I would eat one of those bugs. They look great.
We're going to Hooper Tomato days soon. Can't wait! Do you want us to get you a shirt? :)

Those cupcakes looked FREAKIN' AWESOME!!! Not joking, those are the yummiest looking spiders I've ever seen. Your young women are so lucky to have you as their teacher. I'm sure you inspire them more than you think. What a fun post.

how do you do it? how do you have 3 kids, look gorgeous, comment on other people's blogs, make amazingly intricate little treats for your pupils, and stay sane? you really are my hero, em. i know i say it all the time, but honestly, if i could do 1/8 of all that you do, i'd feel pretty good about life!

have you considered doing some sort of cake business with mindy--no joke, you two should get together and make special occasion desserts!! you guys both have so much time on your hands, this might be just what you need to fill all those dull moments :)

Those are so cute. Those are lucky young women you have. I remember growing up having wonderful yw leaders that always brought treats. I loved being in YW as a leader (although I thought I was not much older than them, but I was)

We just liked the name Lillian... and it was just bonus to have a grandma to name her after. We will see though. We like all of them right now. We figure we need to weed one or two out each month.
cute cupcakes, what a great idea!

Jodi said...

Oh so cute! I can't wait to steal this for my Young Women's lesson! I'm not sure how our Ward is so far behind, but absolutely LOVE the idea!
