This morning...

 These two play together for at least an hour a day in Poppy's room.  It makes me so happy to see them playing like this...

And this is Poppy's "work station".  She loves to sit there and work on making cards and letters for her loved ones...

Check out this physique... love those chubby legs...

Poppy and I made our annual king's cake for mardi gras.  You are supposed to put a trinket like a plastic baby in the cake for a lucky person to find.  Last year I didn't have a plastic baby on hand, so I used a nut instead.  You can read about how excited Poppy was to find a nut in her piece of cake here.  This year, I happened to pick up a pack of little plastic babies and I let Poppy stick one of them in the dough before we baked the cake.  She was so excited that someone was going to find it.  She declared that whoever found the plastic baby would win a big hug and kiss from her.  And I told her that if she found it in her piece, she would get a big hug and kiss from everyone.

She was really excited to cut into this cake...
And then as soon as we cut into, she started getting really nervous about someone actually eating the baby. And then we all started getting nervous about the fact that little plastic baby might have melted into the cake.  We all nervously took little nibbles until.... I FOUND THE PLASTIC BABY IN MY PIECE!!!  I was immediately rewarded with a big hug and kiss and we all ate the rest of our cake stress-free...
 Happy Mardi Gras!
