Vanessa and Chris came over for dinner this past week. Kim and I had rearranged the dining room a bit and added/changed some photos.
I like how it ended up.
Call me "Martha" but I had to try these cupcakes from the February issue of her magazine for our dessert.
Here's the pic from the magazine:

I took a platter of them to my knitting group.
I made the little filigree chocolate hearts with instructions from Martha also. Easy as pie. (click on the instructions to enlarge.)
And since it's coming up to yurt time I had to make Chelsea some homemade dog biscuits. She can't be expected to hike all that way and then eat plain ol' dog food!
Chelsea will soon be looking like this, happily stomping through the snow:
I can't wait!
