Just playing ketchup, my fate (of late)

Miss Madelyn celebrated her first birthday two months ago.

Yes, I know, I am derelict in my duty as most frequent blogger in the family.
Spurts and spasms describes my style lately.
Yet still I soldier on, in spite of the lack of Pulitzer Prize or even a Mommy Blogger award.

Bethany made a most delicious chocolate cake that is much more than the sum of its ingredients. It is layers of chocolatey-cream cheesy heaven. If you want the recipe, check out the yumminess here. 

Funny, I could have sworn that "yumminess" was a word. I'm getting lots of red scrawliness today.
Apparently, scrawliness isn't a word either.

Anyway, here she is, as yet unaware of the bliss she is about to encounter.


Is there any more?

Please, please, let there be some more.

Nope. All gone.

And then she opened her presents, with a little help from Mommy.

And then Charlie did some strange things with Littlest Grand-dog.

And then everybody went home.


  1. Glad you're catching up. Happy birthday to Miss Madelyn! I may be making that chocolaty goodness this weekend - yum!

  2. Tell Madelyn I said: Girl! There's always more. Oh and happy birthday, sweetness. Only a little late.
