Happy Barkday, Maui!

[picture intensive, beware! hehe.]

Today, Maui is ONE – well seven if you are counting in dog years!

Yesterday, I worked on baking her a pupcake, and I ended up making three of them for her. Yeah, yeah… I know she’s spoiled. Any way, I didn’t know where to start, so I came up with my own recipe. For the frosting, I used plain fat free yogurt and sweet potato! I think it turned out fabulously. Actually, I thought it looked good enough for anyone to eat. Here are some pictures of Maui getting her paws on her pupcake:

"For me?!"

Topped with chicken?!

One sweet potato and two carrot pupcakes topped with chicken.

I cant wait anymore. Give me some, please!

"I can't wait anymore. Give me some, please!"

Holy moly! This is delicious, Mommy!

"Holy moly! This is delicious, Mommy!"

The pupcake was too big for her mouth, so she waited for us to cut it up.

Just the way I like it!

You cant get mad at me for getting crumbs everywhere!

I wish we could celebrate my barkday everyday!

Last but not least, I wanted to share my latest layout. I totally loved this paper when I bought it at Scrapbook Territory in Berkeley, so I ended up buying more than one!
