The weekend is quickly coming to an end, and I'm currently taking a quick break from baking.  I made Rocky Road fudge, Pumpkin Cream Cheese Quick Bread, Artisan dough {stored in the refrigerator to use all week}, and blueberry scones {stored in the freezer to bake fresh for breakfast all week}.

You'll be happy to hear that Jackson was able to go on a "play date" on Friday with his biological brother Phin.  They did ok.  A lot of hissing, chatter, and knocking over of things.  By the time I picked him up he was sitting in his crate, waiting for someone to take him home.  I think the farewell was much anticipated by both.  Oh well.  As a side note, he was weighed while he was there......almost 12 pounds!!  Wow - he's not even 1 year old yet.  The good news is that the play date did successfully wear him out and we all got a good night sleep Friday night.  Saturday night, however.......not so much.

I received a lovely package in the mailbox Friday as well.  I had ordered hand-knitted ornaments from Meg at Little Bit of Life.  They came beautifully packaged and I just love them.  Unfortunately both Cait and Jack love them too.  If you get the chance, please check out her blog {here} and her Etsy "Bit of Knittery" store {here}.  She is a super-talented lady!

Speaking of ornaments, both Christmas trees are up, and so far {knock on wood} still standing.  Jackson and Cait are both curious about the ornaments and bat at them, I'm just hoping they don't realize how fun climbing the tree might be.

Our weather has been mild and sunny making it easy to work around the house and still get things done.  Who would have guessed?  Still growing beets, carrots and salad greens in the garden.

And because I can't resist sharing photo's of my cute "babies", I leave you with this afternoon's photo of Oliver {left} and Emerson {right}.

Have a great week!

Aww, look at those faces! So cute. I'm glad your kitties.. Er, I mean you like the ornaments! Although I'm starting to think I should have traded them for baking. ;) Everything sounds delicious!

I'm not sure I'd get much done with those sweet faces staring up at me!
I'd be down on the floor cuddling when I should be baking. They are quite a pair!

Thanks Meg, Mary and TexWis Girl. Yes, they are very sweet faces. Meg - Jackson had managed to steal 2 ornaments within 30 minutes of opening the box. Apparently they are irresistible!! :-)
