I Just Want a Corn Dog!!

The local county fair was in town and I had been looking forward to going ALL week! I was excited about getting out and doing something fun as a family, Halie was old enough to ride one or two rides by herself this year, and I was hungry for corn dogs and an elephant ear. Well........wouldn't you know it, Friday came around and it poured down the rain and was cold and windy. I was SO depressed. I plopped down in the recliner, staring out the window and couldn't seem to pull myself together. For some reason, more than the other reasons I had been excited, all I could think about was that I wanted a corn dog from the fair! Robert kept suggesting things for supper and I poutingly said no to everything. I just wanted a corn dog! Finally, my patient and loving hubby got tired of hearing me whine and said, "Fine! If you really want them THAT bad then I'll make you some!" (This coming from a man that for the most part, does not cook!) At first I said no to even that because I knew he'd have to go to the store to get some of the ingredients and I didn't want to put him through all that trouble. Then he suggested that we make them together, as a family, and maybe that would get me out of my depressed funk. So.......I finally gave in, knowing it was the only way I would get my corn dog. We looked up a recipe online and made our own, homemade corndogs. And man were they good! I told him, "Now all we need to do is go out in the pasture and attempt to ride one of our unbroke horses and it'd be like having the rides at the fair too!"

Conclusion? I have a wonderful husband who loves me even when I'm whiny and depressed and is sweet enough to cook me corn dogs. : )

Valentine's party at the library story time. Miss Mary gave them each a bag to decorate and take their goodies home in.
The actual passing out of Valentine's and candy was a little chaotic, but it was fun and Halie ended up with a lot of stuff. We took heart shaped sugar cookies (which I forgot to get pictures of ).
Wearing her dress that Nana bought her at Christmas. It was perfect for Valentine's Day!
When we got home we spread out her "stash" on the table. My goodness the candy!!

Valentine's Day!! My two favorite people in all the world!

Robert gave me tulips, which I LOVE LOVE LOVE, and a box of Cold Stone Creamery chocolates. MMmmmmm.......they were good! And funny enough, they weren't just mine, he helped me eat them! : ) I gave him a giant Hershey's candy bar and a box of his Turtles that he loves.

Halie got a rose and a Tweety Bird snowglobe from Daddy, and Bubble Bonanza set from Mommy. She certainly didn't need anymore candy after the library party!
All of our homemade Valentines along with ones we got in the mail.

One day while we were out playing in the yard, our dog Gretchen discovered a nest of baby bunnies and ate one of them! So Halie and I rescued the other two from the same fate. We took them back to the house and kept them for a couple of days. They were so tiny and adorably cute. I read on a wildlife website that the mother will keep looking for them for up to a week so you can put them back and she'll find them. So we decided to do that since the next few weeks would be really busy for us. They were sure a lot of fun though, and I think once Halie gets a little older we'll probably get her a tame one as a pet.

Halie had a difficult time remembering to be quiet and gentle around the bunnies so as not to scare them. She would get a little frustrated with me for always telling her to shush. : ) This is why I think we need to wait until she's older for a pet like this.
