Friday Fun!

I told you in my post yesterday that Maddie made a Valentine's cake. I think she might give the Pioneer Woman some competition with her cooking skills. LOL Pillsbury makes this cute cake mix and frosting for Valentine's Day and Kroger's had some disposable heart shape pans to put it in. Here's Maddie showing everyone the cake mix, what you don't see is how much she was enjoying the batter.
Here's the fun part, decorating the heart shape cake. I have no idea why we were decorating the cake in the middle of the living room but she was having fun.

And the best part, eating the fruits of her labor. LOL She would take a bite and look at all of us and say "cake good". I put the rest of the cake in a tupperware container for Maddie to take home to her Daddy and she held on to that container like it was pure gold and fell asleep in the car on the way home still holding it, which was about the cutest thing ever. :-)

I also told you about little Cameron and his backwards crawling skills. Here's an example of how he backs himself under a chair. He just cracks me up because he also has this funny way of laughing and you just can't help but laugh with him.

Okay, okay I know you are probably tired of grandbaby photos but just one more. I loved this photo of Maddie showing Cameron how to play with the toy. She was just so excited to show him how it worked, it was so sweet.
Anyway, have a good weekend. My sweetie and I are headed down to Florida this weekend. It'll be heaven just to feel warm weather. I am not bringing my laptop but will have my photos for the Photo Challenge schedule to post(I hope it works). Is that very rude, to be the hostess and not show up? LOL But I can't wait to check out everyone photos when I return. Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Joan, I read your blog having discovered your blogs through as I recall a movie review you had written about PS, I love you and then your name clicked to your blog. I live in Ca though I used to live in Cincinnati. Any way, the reason I am writing, is my sister that lives in Cleveland area, had those rocks in her head and has a wonderful therapist that cured them in just a few treatments. Then a few years later, my 80 year old mom was very bothered with the same thing. She travelled from In for a visit to cleveland and after one visit to the therapist she was cured. If you would like more info about, I will put you in touch with my sister. My email is

Lucky you on your way to Florida and warm weather. Its grey and rainy tody for us.
Your Grandkids are precious. I love Cameron scooting under the chair. Mine would go backwards to and were forever getting stuck someplace because they didn't know how to go forward to get out. Kids are so funny. their antics and laughter are pure medicine.
Have fun...wish I was going with you.

Awwww...Maddie did a great job with the cake and she looks so cute trying to teach Cameron how to play with the toy. So sweet.

Have fun this weekend.

I'm trying to play catch up; you can NEVER post too many pictures of your precious grands - they are SO adorable!!

Hopefully, while you're here in FL you're not close to me; no sun AT all the last few days! But, I'm sure it's warmer than Cincy. :)

Yum, that cake looks delicious! I wonder if there will be any left for me tomorrow? I was wondering why you were letting Maddie decorate in the middle of the living room, haha! Cam is sooooo cute, I want to squeeze him. Our family makes the BEST babies, don't you think?? Where was Sassy Sis?

Have fun in Florida! Try not to miss the 20* weather TOO much!!
