Hooray for Friday…and…two posts in one week! Let me tell you, those two things alone feel like good reasons to celebrate. Not only that, it’s also Valentine’s Day! While I know there are a few that think this holiday is a bit silly, I happen to be one that loves it, especially since my boys came along. It’s a day for fun, mushy, silliness and for boys in particular I think that is a very good thing. I know I dropped the ball on sharing a fun treat for this day of love, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been making them.
Sooo…..have you ever had one of those weeks? Where you have it all planned out…workouts, meals, blog posts? Then one child gets sick, then another and another. All plans go out the window, and you spend that well planned week making soup, monitoring fevers and watching endless movies snuggled up on the sofa. Well, that would pretty much sum up the first part of January for us. At the end of that week full of sickness, my youngest boy had a birthday. He requested a chocolate layer cake with ‘fluffy, chocolate frosting’. His request included making the cake, as he saw his brother do last spring. Of course, I planned to photograph and share it here with all of you. After a week of fevers, none of that happened.
