Our week through my camera phone

My first time EVER to get a pound cake out of the pan in one piece. I've had plenty of practice as it's one of my favorites. I pretty much love anything with almond extract...and butter....and cream cheese for that matter.

I had my feelings hurt earlier in the week by some rude comments that were left on this here blog. Don't know why people feel the need to be ugly. Anyways, the Hubby and Bubby ran "errands" and when I heard a knock at the door I found this cute guy......

All better. This. This is what matters.

We made turkey cookies.

Apparently this is a childhood favorite for Matt.

A beautiful day at the park

Sissy feeding Bubby

Basketball season is here!

Last night we had weather cool enough for hot cocoa.

Little Miss got her first taste of hot cocoa "coffee" with "marshapillows" and was in heaven. The girl didn't come up for air until the cup was empty

Oh and lesson learned, generic brand marshmallows are NOT the same as Kraft jet puffed marshmallows. Found that out last night.

Hope yall have a great Friday!


  1. Love this! And I can't believe you got mean comments! Your husband was so sweet to bring your flowers! ADORABLE! And those Turkey cookies are so cute! I am getting lots of fun ideas on things to do with my future little ones! :]

    You might have to share your pound cake recipe. I found a square-shaped bundt pan at a garage sale, and I need a yummy excuse to use it!

  9. I just wanted to tell you how sweet your blog is. Please don't allow someone else's bad day to ruin yours. After 25 years of marriage, raising 2 wonderful children(and losing one of them), I have decided that life is much too short and quick to waste on worrying about what other people say. Really. Live your life to the best of your ability. Kiss your precious children and husband every day. Tomorrow comes way too quickly. Hugs.

  10. Don't listen to the negativity. You have a wonderful blog with wonderful tips, pretty things and a beautiful family. (Including yourself) Haters are jealous of how perfect your little life looks that's all, not to worry.
