Thank-you everyone for wishing me well last week. It really didn't end up amounting to much other than the allergies and sniffles. So yay! looks like I ended up outwitting that bug. I checked my schedule and daytimer and there was just no space available for it so I took a raincheck. LOL.
Thanks Secret Pal for the fun gifts! It really made my day to find all these treats on my doorstep. The book Ladybug, Ladybug is darling, it glows in the dark. The body and bath is *PUMPKIN SPICE*!!!! My like-a-dat! There was a yummy apple cinnamon flavor lip gloss, an orange lolly pop! SWEET! A pumpkin bowl and bib for bebe a click lock toy, a stuffed crinkly plush camera for bebe to take pictures of mommy and daddy when they are taking pictures of her. A flower shaped ice pack with a cute little ladybug on it and Halloween tissues. Secret pal you are such a blessing to me. Thanks for giving me something to look forward to during this wait. Hugz

Oh, Midgie wants to say thank you also! She LOVED her new bed. I couldn't keep her out of it. My nephew folded the flaps closed and she didn't flinch! Hummmmm.........perhaps she was hoping I'd pack her up and send her somewhere. :o(

Bailey thought he should go to work in Montreal with Shane last week. I didn't think I was going to be able to capture this shot in time but I had no problem, we had to physically remove him off the suitcase!

I have to share this fun and quick little hors d'oeuvre since the holidays are just around the corner. They are bacon wrapped cherries and bacon wrapped pineapple, don't get turned off too quickly now, I'm sure you have all had a baked ham with pineapple and cherries on it right? All I do is cut the lb of bacon in half, wrap a cherry or a pineapple chunk in a slice of bacon and stick a tooth pick threw it. Bake until edges are golden. You'll be surprised at how quick they will go. The last time I made them for a get together a friend of mine tried to say cherry and pineapple at the same time and asked if I made "chinapples" !!!!! I have since renamed them you guessed it.....Chinapples!


I am having one of those crazy weeks where it is one thing after another, so I'll try to get around to every ones blogs the best I can. I have some exciting news to share with you soon. I just can't tell anyone until I have permission. I know, I know, I know you hate it when people do this! So here is just a tiny fragment of a hint.....it will help make at least 5 months of our wait pass by quickly. That is all I can say for now.

Wonderful gifts! I love secret stuff!
We love a recipe that Paula Deen has with bacon, cheese on a cracker. Sounds strange, but baked together is a great hors d'oeuvre but sometimes dry. Yours sounds great (and better)!

Great gifties! I'm sorry that your pets seem to want to leave :(
