Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Every Valentine’s Day, my mom would make us a heart-shaped yellow cake with chocolate frosting. To this day it is my favorite cake frosting combo. This year I thought I would continue the tradition, but since its not a good idea to leave a pregnant woman alone with a cake I thought it would be wise to make cupcakes and share with neighbors. I got the recipe from http://smittenkitchen.com/2009/07/best-birthday-cake/. It turned out wonderful, moist, and not-to-sweet cupcakes.
Brooks watched the whole process and was anxious to try one when they were done.

In other news, we are beginning our garden.

Brooks wanted to be with Mark outside. So I put on his shoes and let him run around the backyard while Mark worked. He came back in dirty and with several scrapes on his knees and hands. He had a great time.

  1. ahh, gardening in the spring time! So jealous as we're still under several feet of snow here in Boston. Hoping to see the grass by the time April comes around.
