Let me warn you...
Lots of pictures of cute kids to follow...
A true chef always samples her work.
Tate has really gotten into the Christmas spirit.
Okay... maybe not.
He sure is cute though, isn't he?
Nana and Baba came for the weekend. Addie and Millie had a ton of fun making cut-out cookies with Nana Lois!
We found this sad and lonely little reindeer sitting on our hearth.
So we sent the elves to cheer him up!
Tate's all dressed up and ready to go to church!
The girls had their Christmas program Sunday night. Addie's in the front row, second from the right in the black/white plaid dress and red tights. She did wonderfully. We don't have a picture of Millie here - it's on my parents' camera, but she was super cute too. Even though all she did was stand very still. :)
(Notice how the kids' eyes are glowing in these pictures? No, it's not a special effect I wanted to try... it's the results of a very old digital camera... but I heard word of a new one coming our way very soon...!)
This morning we decided to tackle the Gingerbread House. Notice the kit? There was no way I was going to make one from scratch. That's what kits are for, right?!
(Also notice Addie's wearing a dress. She would wear a dress 24/7 if I let her. This one just happens to be too short for church, so we let her wear it around the house.)
We thought it looked better without the chimney, so of course we had to eat it (plus several of the decorations...)
The finished product - even better than the picture on the box! :)
Daddy took Addie out on a date tonight to see The Princess and the Frog. She was super-duper excited!
And Millie wasn't jealous at all... She got the stage All. To. Her. Self.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend as well!
