Pretty in pink

My birthday was a couple of weeks ago and we spent the day exactly as I wanted, surrounded by my babies. Adelaide and Cecilia, pretty in pink. Adelaide is enchanted with the living breathing baby doll that comes to visit her. She is mystified that she can't get her dollies to wiggle, eat, cry and smile like her cousin. She gives nice pats on the head and points out to Cecilia where her eyes and nose and mouth and ears are.

This child has the biggest blue eyes I've ever seen.
Here's our Charlie, the oldest the only fox in the henhouse. He has a serious case of hat hair goin' on.

Chocoholic Elizabeth just couldn't believe this cake when we brought it to the table. She pulled up a chair, climbed on and could hardly contain herself. She shook with anticipation. She got about as close as she could - I think the distance between her nose and that cake are unmeasureable...they don't make numbers that small, do they? It is a pretty darned good cake.

And that brings me to this week's Snappyfriends challenge. In honor of Valentine's Day, I'm sure, the assignment was something brown. What else could you possibly think of but chocolate?? There's a shop in the city that makes their own chocolates and you would have to be a real grinch not to go crazy in this place. When you want something special this is where you go. When you want a treat this is where you go. When you think you deserve something just because...this is where you go.

Died and gone to heaven.
