Love is !!

Its just been the girls today, the smallest member of the house included.

The boys have been out for the day so it was the ideal time to have some time for the girls. I cant think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning than in the kitchen wearing our aprons and listening to some gentle music (ok so my choice was classical but when you are nine years old all you want to listen to is the Mamma Mia soundtrack)

Just for the record, all I did was supervise and make sure that no precious little fingers were burnt in the oven, she did the rest herself. We decided that as it is Valentines Day we should have pretty pink cases for the cake and for the butter icing we pureed some strawberrys and added them to the icing giving it a delicious tasting pink.

Love is...... letting your little one lick the spoon.

Didnt you just love been given the spoon as a child?

When I made her that apron it was HUGE, it now looks so tiny on her she has grown so much and just look at those long hands and fingers, perfect for the clarinet. She didnt get them from me.

All iced and ready to be eaten.

Lovely yummy fairy dust sprinkles to add a finishing touch.

I have also been given some awards recently,
This was from Faerie Nuff

And this was from Faerie Nuff
and Blueberry Heart and Debbie
Thank you to you both very much, I am sorry that it has taken some time to get them posted but gosh I dont know where the time is going at the moment. Blessings to you all.
Now the rules,
The authors say that blogs who receive this award are exceedingly charming. This blog invests in proximity in space, time and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandisement. Our hope is that when ribbons of these awards are cut, even more friendships will be propagated. Please give your kind attention to these writers.

Now I have to deliver this award to 8 bloggers who will then choose 8 more and include the above cleverly written text to the body of the award.
Here they are,
Thank you all so very much and both of these awards are for you, I am sure you might have already received them from other kind bloggers. You dont have to select eight blogs to send them to if you dont have the time.
