Happy Valentine's Day or The White Chocolate Truffle Incident

I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day. I love this day. I adore this day. I think this is one of the best holidays we celebrate during the year along with Easter, Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, the first day of spring, the first day of winter and of course there are the many birthdays and anniversaries too.
Our family celebrated Valentine's Day yesterday because Todd's working today. Cali and I made white chocolate truffles and tucked them into red velvet cupcakes. They were yum.
We had some of these . . .

left over so I told Cali she was welcome to have them as long as she didn't eat them all at once.

So she ate them one at a time.

Over the course of two hours.

She also licked the cupcake bowl . . .

Poor girl was so sick at the end of the day she wasn't a happy camper. But it was kind of funny. To me. Because I didn't eat all of it. I wasn't sick. She knows where the bathroom is. Maybe its a mother thing.

Will you be my Valentine?

May the best of your yestedays be the worst of your tomorrows.

Tank and Cole Visit Vegas

All three sons are in town and Dad is still determined to conquer everything with a computer chip. Just remember the little engine that could Dad. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can . . . I know I can, I know I can.

Uncle Bear showing James where to find all the cute girls.
If anyone knows, it's Uncle Bear. He sure caught himself a cutie.

Uncle Bear, Uncle Bear . . . check out this one!
Silly James! That's your Auntie Stef.

Our darling Cole and wonderful James. What a beautiful, gorgeous, handsome, fabulous, terrific, absolutely phenomenal children have.

Whoa! Check out Cole's muscles! He is so strong. I bet he eats his vegetables.

Oh no! Caught in Grandpas grip. Can't . . . break . . . free. Have . . . to eat . . . more . . . veggies! (Did you get that Christel?)

I bet James will be as tall and handsome as all of his uncles. He's got a great start.

Happy Birthday Cole!

What do you get when you're Tank and Christel's son and its your 7th birthday? A trip to Las Vegas of course! That has Tank written all over it, doesn't it?

It looks as though they had a rip-roaring time too. Cole sure draws a crowd.
We hope you had the very best birthday Cole. WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
