My little Mocha got her stitches out last week, so we ventured out to celebrate.
We drove to the nearby city to visit Steve's mom in the nursing home.
I had made her delicious recipe for Lasagna the night before, and we took her a piece. She was so happy and enjoyed every bite! She remembered it too...and with that dreadful disease of Dementia, every memory is a gift. Flynn was so good...helping Mum with her dinner and sitting right next to her bed.
Of course a visit to the city is not complete without a stop at Eat 'n Park for Flynn's favorite cookies.
Meanwhile, my oldest was having a hard time selecting a treat from this gorgeous display in downtown Copenhagen. Nicolas snapped this picture for me of my Madison. : )
I've been missing my girl, so I've taken to having my latte in her favorite mug.
Seems to help. : )
And this. This you must try.
We missed the storm...but lit a fire anyway.
And my little Flynn was on dog sitting duty Saturday night!
She loves Steve's sister's dog Roscoe, and was thrilled when Sally and her husband asked if Flynn could keep him overnight. She did a great job...with only the tiniest bit of help from Daddy.
This Saturday, my dear, sweet mother turns 79!
This is a picture of her and her little brother...who is three days shy of being exactly one year younger than she is. Here is my mom on her birthday all those years ago. : )
And finally, this was our cake for National Chocolate Cake Day. And it was good.
Peyton will be duplicating it this weekend for my mother's birthday. This time...with homemade peanut butter frosting. : )
Have a wonderful last weekend of January, my friends!
Stay warm and cozy.
