There was no school on Friday, so the kids and I decided to bake 🙂
Their grandma sent them a Cupcake Kit for Valentine’s Day- with Betty Crockers Fundamiddles, which had pink frosting in the middle of the cupcakes. (Thanks Grandma!) As I was preparing the cupcakes I noticed that we had a few bananas that were turning so I figured I would make some Banana Bread too!
Why not, right? (plus…I think I’ve been in the mood to cook all week, since we’ve had homemade, from scratch meals every single day this week)
The kids LOVED the cupcakes (which I didn’t get a picture of…but, they loved the Banana bread just as much!) They couldn’t keep their hands off of it! My daughter even said, “Mom, I think you make the best Banana Bread in the world!” I am sure she knows too–since she’s probably only had Banana Bread a few times in her life! 😉
I figured I’d give you all my recipe for this yummy treat! It was so moist and delicious!
- 3-4 very ripe mashed bananas about 1 cup
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup butter

Also, it was the Annual Daddy-Daughter Dance, and Alexis was so excited to go, she started getting ready for the dance hours before! 🙂
Since Daddy and Alexis were going out, Jaxen and I had our own little date. Here are pictures from the evening.
The flower he brought me for our date. He picked it out himself.

She loved it- and couldn’t stop looking at it.
