Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!  During our normal evening television watching last night, Jerry had the thought that we had not bought Valentine cards for our babies!  We are not very good about sending birthday cards, etc.  but we always send our grandchildren Valentine cards.  Until this year.  

When I got up this morning with "Plan B".  I decided because there were no cards, that I would make Valentine cupcakes.

I think the cupcakes turned out great!  They are chocolate with chocolate frosting.  On top there are red and pink sugar sprinkles and a homemade heart pick in the center. 

Hope you have an awesome Valentine's Day!

New babies!

I logged into my blog today and was shocked to see that I haven't posted to this site since February 2011.  There has been a lot that has happened since then.  We have two grandchildren that haven't been introduced here.  Can you imagine?  A grandma that is behind with baby pictures.  That is a sad, sad thing.

So, without further ado, meet Maya!  She will be 2 in June and belongs to Leah and Nick.  She is one of a kind.  She is beautiful with big brown eyes and lots of personality.  My mom is happy; she finally has a brown-eyed child in her family.  The rest of us have blue eyes. 

Then there is Levi.  Levi belongs to Rebekah and Josh.  He was born in September 2012 and is simply the happiest child I know.  He is always smiling.  He looks just like his daddy until he smiles.  Then he looks like his mom.

We are so blessed to have healthy, happy grandchildren whose parents love them beyond measure.
