I have found this to be used as a metaphor for many things in life LOVE and GOD are just a few!!!!
We were very busy at our house today!!!! Little screams and giggels flowed in the air all day as our day was full of Valentines fun!!!! We made Red velvet cake for a few family members and for "COWBOY"!!!!!
|"June Bug" hmmm think I can get my fingers in there before she notices!!!|
|Hope my sister doesn't come in here, she will take my job away!!!|
Then the best part!!! Last year I made a fruit basket for the bible study group I am in, it was so much fun and the girlz had helped me!!! I had forgotten all about it until "Bugs" asked if we were going to make those yummy STARBABBIES again!!!! LOL. I remember how we had chocolate everywhere and so had she!!!! So this year I picked up the berries and our tradition has made it to another year!!!
|Smells like summer!!!|
|"Its just one mom, please can I have it!"|
Can we all say Sugar!!!!
|A little of this|
|And a little of that!!!|
|And Wow....Happy Day to Daddy!!!|
We even had some left over cake batter so I put some Oreo's in the bottom of the cupcake holders and dumped it in!!!! At one point in time I could not find out what had happened to the Oreo's I placed in the cups....hmmmmm.....Ooooo I see now!!!!
That is where they went!!!! hmmm and only the icing is gone!!!! I then let the girls ice the cupcakes and lick the spoons!!!! We had such fun this afternoon!!!!
I am so thankful for those sticky fingers, frosting faces, and sugary screams and giggles!!!! LORD I love the life I have, maybe I don't like the way it goes some days but I always love it!!!
Last evening while I was busy thinking of the things to do with "Bugs" and "June Bug" today, "Cowboy" told me he was sorry but he had not been anywhere to pick up anything for Valentines day, in fact his exact words were "I JUST HAVEN'T HAD TIME" which to any woman means, I just didn't make time!!! This is pretty normal around our house!!! Cowboy and I do not make much time for each other. It seems like between the crops, kids, and cows there just is so little left!!!! I am not very good about this any better then him!!! I have poured my heart and soul into our family. Our children do not lack for my attention, I have a huge garden, I love to bake, so there does not seem to be much left for him either! That being said I gave a "WHATEVER" face and carried on my way!!!!
This morning when I came down the stairs to start my STRONG coffee, this is what I found!!!
