Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Crackers

A quick treat for Valentine's Day.
Made with just a few ingredients
Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Crackers
Simply melt a bag of chocolate disks (I used dark chocolate)
Spread peanut butter on a cracker and top with another cracker.
Dip in melted chocolate and place on pan lined with waxed paper.
Sprinkle with colorful decorations
Cool in the refrigerator until hardened
Treats are always better when shared with someone.
And I had someone on my mind when making these.
My dear friend, currently living in Texas, sent this pretty table scarf to me via another friends recent visit.
I love linens and the embroidery on this piece is so pretty.
Even though it is intended for Christmas with tiny boughs of pine and holly, red cardinal and Amaryllis, I think it works for Valentine's Day too.
I took notice of the capital 'L' in red and thought it extra special ;)
If my friend were here for a visit we would definitely enjoy a cup of tea together and some treats.
She would bring her infectious smile and words of encouragement because that is one of her gifts. 
She would lend a listening ear, maybe share a Bible verse and there would be laughter and a hug.
Thinking of good times with friends as I put this vignette together.

Job Done

Jamie asked if we would like to stop by her house on the way home from our visit to Philly .
She and Josh have been working hard gutting and re-doing the second floor of their cape cod house making room for their growing family.
It was taken down to the studs and new walls, electricity, windows and lighting were installed.
New carpet had just been laid and the rooms were put back together.
The kids were so excited to chill out and show us their new rooms.
 Keri Jill
 She feels like a princess with a chandelier in her room.
  Since the weather was so warm she was able to stand by an open window to watch the birds.
 Pop-Pop trying to wheedle (unsuccessfully) a kiss from Cambrie as Keri comes running to give him some birthday lovin'.
Noah and Silas were arranging their stuffed animals just so when we arrived.
The kids were so content to play while we sat and chatted.
Caleb John has the new dormer for his own space.
My dear Jamie taking a well earned rest after much painting and working to get this project complete before baby girl arrives.
Silas was showing Pop-Pop some of his homeschool computer work as the other kids gathered around. Little Cambrie ooched in for some help with her Lego's.

even the stairwell got a fresh coat of paint
