OS X 10.7 (Lion) introduced a feature where it automatically restores any windows that were open on shutdown, as best as it can determine. If you still have Word and Excel running at shutdown (that is, you haven't closed them with cmd+q), they will start up again when you restart your computer and, I would guess, open a blank document.
