Everyday is Valentine's

I was literally on my deathbed on Valentine's day. I caught the nasty flu that has been going around. I knew it was only a matter of time since Sophia & Kalista both had it a few days earlier.

Sophia was looking forward to baking Darling Daddy a cake, but I just couldn't muster up the strength to get out of bed. And just a side note . . . Someone was really looking out for me that day because the girls entertained each other the entire day. They could have been painting the house and I wouldn't have known. But instead, they played and rubbed my back from time to time. They even took their naps. I'm going to remember that day forever. : )

Sophia was super excited on Sunday when I told her we were going to make Daddy's cake. She said, But it's not Valentine's." And I told her, "Everyday is Valentine's." This confused her, but she rolled with it.

Super Moist Chocolate Cake
1 box Devil's Food cake mix
3 large eggs
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup water
1 pint of sour cream
1 box chocolate pudding mix
2 cups of chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350. Combine cake mix, eggs, oil and water and mix well. Add the sour cream and mix. Then add pudding and mix well. The batter will be thick. Fold in chocolate chips.

Lightly grease cake pan (I usually use a bundt pan but opted for a heart shaped pan this time). Pour in batter and bake for 55 minutes. Let cool before serving.
