She hopped onto my finger and that is where she will stay until she goes into her little castle to rest and waits for her next outing.

My Auntie D gave me Fiona for Christmas.

I think Fiona is just gorgeous.

Did I tell you how much I just love Frogs.

Finally we were able to pull out the carrots. We have had so much rain and then we got the cold weather, we just were not able to pull them out until yesterday. Now I need to freeze these babies and store them away. Fresh grown garden carrots are just soooo sweet and very tasty. Yum, can't wait to cook them.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Especially the ones you can eat. I made this for Valentine's and it was so delicious.

Found the recipe on the Food & Family Magazine.

Here's the recipe:

1 pkg devil's food cake mix
1 pkg. 8oz. cream cheese, softened
1 egg
2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
1 pkg. 3.4 oz. vanilla flavor instant pudding
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup cold milk
2 cups thawed cool whip whipped topping
1 cup flake coconut

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cake mix as per instructions on box. Pour batter in a 2 1/2 quart ovenproof bowl.
Beat cream cheese, egg and granulated sugar until well blended, spoon into center of batter in bowl. Bake 1 hour and 5 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in bowl 10 min. Invert onto cake plate and make sure it is completely cooled before icing.

ICING: While cake is baking, beat dry pudding mix, powdered sugar and milk in medium bowl with whisk 2 min Stir in cool whip. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Frost with pudding mixture. Cover with coconut.

Hope you try this, it is really like a great big snowball cupcake.
