Valentines Day

 Years ago, we started bringing out the china to celebrate Valentine's Day.  It was a wonderful tradition.  Even with the boys away, we decided to continue with a fancy meal.  It was yummy!
We finished the dinner with a variety of cupcakes.  I like to have bites of a variety taking advantage of the opportunity to try more than one.  My favorite is still the Pucker Up!
 My Valentine since 1987!  Love him!

I had the idea of milk shakes for dessert last night.  Then, I forgot I donated our blender to the soup kitchen.  Good thing the food processor worked just as well!  They were yummy and filling!

I gotta get past this cold and start exercising.  The cold is my excuse and I am sticking to it!!
Would have be more festive and in the Valentine spirit if I'd had red sprinkles.

Inaugural Indoor 5K

Peanut completed his first indoor 5K.  It was lots of laps 'round the track.  Grateful we got a sneak peak with this picture.  Even better if - - we'd been there in person!

Half Marathon

After we left St. Pete at Thanksgiving, Pumpkin called saying he was going to do a half marathon.  He did it!  I was very impressed.

This weekend it dawned on me to look for the marathon pics.  Found two of Pumpkin!  Look at those quads!

I do not like to run in the slightest bit.  Maybe someday I'll walk the St. Jude Half...

Cinnamon Lips

I expected these candies to be so much more!

I was walking through the store and splurged thinking these would hit the spot.  I like the authentic cinnamon bears.  These taste more waxy.  The flavor varied from lip to lip.  Sounds funny, huh?  I'm going to let The Big Guy try them.  I'm guessing they won't do much for him.  After all, they are not chocolate!

Feel Better, Peanut!

Got a text that Peanut was sick this am.  No need to go into the knitty gritty details.  I think this was his first time to feel bad away from home.  What a milestone, huh?  I was thinking about him from afar all day long.  Hoping he feels better and gets that grin back on his face in no time.

The Cuddler

Jude always finds her spot very close to us!
