Ah, Sugar Sugar


Back in the day, there was a song called Sugar, Sugar. I've decided it's a good description for what's been happening around our house in the last week or two. Give this song a listen. :)

Oh the influx of s.u.g.a.r!

•It all started when Bryan had surgery and needed lots of ice cream in the house. Well how could we let him eat ice cream alone?
•Then, my birthday came last Thursday. Let there be cake AND more ice cream!
•Then, there were some overripe bananas in the kitchen. That called for banana bread. I really needed to try out a new recipe. Good news is that I liked it better than my old one!
•Then there was the friend who found it necessary to send brownies home with us.
•Plus, there was Jadyn who had a gingerbread house she made a couple of weeks ago. I promise I didn't eat any of it. She ate about 1/2 of it. Then we threw it out.

WHY do sugary treats have to be so GOOD?

"I just can't believe the loveliness of loving you!" "Pour a little sugar on me honey!" "You have made my life so sweet!"

There's a dad whose son is in Jadyn's preschool class. He does not like and does not eat sugary treats. Oh, how I wish I could be that way too.

Really, does this need any explanation?

On my birthday, two daughters with me, and one on the phone. Sweet! We did invite the guys to the party. They're just not in this picture. Alan was very sweet, to take the day off for my birthday. He ordered pizza, got a cake AND ice cream, and invited our kids over.

Sweet times!

Happy Be-lated Birthday Laura!

I love sweet treats too. Especially baked goods. So hard to resist. I find the older I get, the more I crave them... I'll probably weigh 300 pounds by the time I"m 50.
