Macy Turns 2!

You knew it was coming. Don't be embarrassed if you were counting the days. I mean what's more fun than starting your Monday off with a little celebration? So in honor of our favorite four legged friend, here are a few pictures of Macy on her second birthday.

An Ode to Macy; "Oh Macy how you love your pillows."

"And your play time."

"Oh Macy, how you get our long 135lb. self rolled into the balls the way you do we will never know."

Ya' I got nothing for this one.

"Oh Macy, how you stack the pillows just right so you can lay on them mesmerizes us to this very day."

"Again with the pillows!"

"Oh sweet Macy how we love thee....."

"Even though your head is the size of mine....."

"Oh how you love your blankets too......."

"But mostly you love your little peeps. We love how when we come home you run around and count the kids to make sure they are all home safe and sound. And how if one is missing you run and check all the bedrooms."

"Yup' sometimes you steal the girls pillows too."

"They don't seem to mind though. Because your the best dog EVER!"
In honor of Macy's birthday we made Chocolate Covered Katie's 1 minute single serving chocolate cake. Because I love ya and want you to experience this little bit of heaven I am including the recipe below. And yes because we are sick, sick people we bought Macy a new stuffed animal for her birthday. Whaaaaaat? 
Chocolate Cake (Courtesy of Chocolate Covered Katie
1 tbs. plus 2 tsp. cocoa powder
3 tbs. spelt flour (or white) I used GF flour
1/2 tsp. instant coffee granules
1/8 tsp. salt
2. tsp. evaporated cane juice or sugar
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 stevia packet (or 1 more tbs. of sugar)
1 tbs. of coconut oil or veg oil. ( I used apple sauce)
3 tbs. milk of choice
1/4 tsp. vanilla
Combine dry ingredients and mix very well. Add liquid, stir and transfer to a little ramekin. Microwave 45-50 seconds.
I melted a few chocolate chips and spread it on top after cake was done. YUM!

Oh how I love your love for your girl Macy! We have the opposite of yours...weenie dogs! I firmly believe that ours are really tiny people in dog suits. They are tiny little dictators and we are spoiled to pieces. (orshould it be the other way around?) Great photos and captions. You are immensely enjoyable my dear! Write on!!

I love how "play time" looks the same as "nap time". She really is adorable...although it feels weird to use that word to describe such a large animal.
