Sugar and spice, and all things nice....

What a "sweet" weekend! I started my Valentine celebration a little early with one of my favorite chocolate treats.

Pure mint chocolaty goodness! I put on a pot of coffee and settled on the couch with a present delivered by our mailman.

Now that's what I call the perfect Saturday afternoon.

Today was Finley's christening, so we got to spend time with the sweet pea. Remember the fuzzy white booties I made? Here they are on her chubby little feet.

Loving the funky striped tights!

Megan requested a Sunrise Bakery white cake with lemon filling and buttercream frosting, a family favorite.

All I can say is mmmm, mmmm, good!

Poor Julie and Jeremy were home with coughs and colds, so they didn't get the Valentine package I put together for them. It's in the mail, but here is a sneak peek at one of the surprises in the bag.

Can you guess what it is?

Well, I probably should start dinner, but I'm not really hungry. I wonder why that is?


XXOO, Mom. That is how I signed after school notes to Julie and Megan. They would get irritated and say, "Mom, it's not XXOO, it's XOXO!"  Does it really matter?  I still sign everything XXOO, Mom.  :@

Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. I can see Megan in finley now!
    I can't believe finley is now one of gods children :)

  2. She probably thought she was getting her hair washed. :@

  3. See! I knew you'd all start saying how Finley looks like Megan. :)

    That's funny about the XXOO thing. ;) Hehe.

    Mmmm...Chocolate. I just picked up some Dove Dark Chocolate at Walgreens for "my coworkers."

    Cute lil V-Day basket! I wonder what that is?! ;)

  4. I love the 'lollipop' gift for P.Baby! Cute idea!

    Yes...Finley thought it was just bath-time...her fave! Plus all the little girlie cousins were calling it 'bath-atism' you can see why Finley was confused!

    XXOO Mom --- Happy V-Day to you and Dad! ***Finley's squealing with delight right now ... happy she got a quick visit yesterday (wished it was longer!)

  5. I confess, I didn't make the lollipop. Julie can let you know what it is when she gets it.
