We've been baking! Gingerbread, and some treats that never made their photographic debut but were delicious none the less (Rice Krispy Wreath's especially)
|She is not a great "helper" cooperative and enthusiastic yes.. but her output is just about nil..|
The Mr. whipped up a batch of these...
Hmm Buckeye Balls!! You'll notice that one is missing in this picture already.. I can hardly control myself around these treats, and The Mr. doesn't even pretend to try.
It Snowed!! We celebrated by eating the December snowflakes..
And with a freak commuter time ice/snow storm we got a whole day off school, and was able to remember all the reasons I loved being a stay at home mom.We played Wii (did I mention that one day this summer I left the Mr. alone with the kids and when I came home we owned a Wii?)
We cuddled in our jammas and opened Santa's workshop and ate homemade mac n cheese on this snow day.. if this post wasn't already so long I would post my recipe.. it's amazing.. but you can't eat it very often because it's terribly unhealthy. (We usually balance it out with oatmeal at breakfast and collard greens and blackeyed peas for dinner) Here is Lil Bit mashing up the topping.. She's not angry, her mouth is full of "friend in me" crackers (which is how she refers to Toy Story. Our Mac n Cheese begins with bacon and is topped off with Cheez-It crumbles... and what comes in between is a cheese heaven let me tell you..
Santa's workshop opened..
The elves put in some serious time sewing pretty with Hello Kitty.. Miss H whipped out aprons, and burpcloths, and placemats in a truly impressive fashion. There was wrapping and singing and gift packing and post-officing as well..
|Check out this fine cutting! HE's getting so grown up, although I'm not sure why he's cutting lefthanded.|
|Can you guess who this is for?|
