228/365: Peanut Butter Coconut Pupcakes Recipe

Yesterday was LuLu’s 3rd birthday! I can’t believe my little sugar-pop is already 3 years old! It seems like just yesterday that she was only 3 pounds!

To celebrate her birthday, I decided to make her some pupcakes.

I dunno what you’re making, Woman.. but I want some!

Here’s what they looked like before baking:

Where’s my pupcakes, Woman?!

And when they were done baking:

 

Here’s the recipe, so you can give them a try!   They are yummy for humans, too.  ;)

180/365: Happy Birthday Wally!

Today is the day we celebrate my silly boy’s second birthday.  He’s crazy.  He’s wild.  He’s even downright obnoxious sometimes.  But he’s also the sweetest boy I know and I can’t imagine life without him.  He never fails to make me smile.  Thanks, Doodle, just for being you.

Guess who’s TWO!?

And some of my favorite baby Wally pictures, because I can’t help myself!

Happy Birthday, Walnut.

Yummy Birthday Treats!

We ordered a birthday box for Lu from 2 Little Bostons Bakery.  We chose a wheat-free carob chip cake, a package of bbq rib treats, some sweet potato chews and a fleece tug toy.  Also included were a packet of carob powder, sprinkles and several different frosting recipes.

2 Little Bostons is giving away a free month of treats!  If you’d like to enter their giveaway, check out their facebook page and click the “giveaway” tab.

Our box arrived today and couldn’t have been more perfect!

You are SO mean, making us wait!

Lu says “NOM, NOM, NOM!”

Wally says “IZ DEEELISHUS!!”

I can have more cake, please??

Happy Birthday to my heart dog!

Today is Lu’s second birthday!  It seems like just yesterday that I was blogging about her first birthday.  Where has the year gone???

A couple of weeks ago, our friends at Kol’s Notes celebrated their Half-Blogoversary with an awesome giveaway.  We were the lucky winners of a Nina Ottosson DogCasino toy!

I received it last week, but decided to hang on to it as a birthday gift for Lu.  Here she is, checking out her present!

Lu is very good with these kind of toys.  We already have the Brick and she figured out the Spinny and Tornado in no time at training class. I was hoping this would be a challenge for her, but alas, my darling Lu is too smart for her own good.  She really LOVED this puzzle toy though!  See for yourself!

I started out in “easy mode”.  As you can see, this was NO challenge to her at all.

Then I put the pegs in to increase the difficulty. These pegs keep the drawers locked until she pulls the pegs out. This was a little more challenging, but it still took her less than 1 minute to figure out the puzzle.

Oh, LuLu. What are we going to do with you?!
