I forgot to add this picture in last week's post, but I thought it was too cute to pass up.
Making fudge with Papa! And not just any fudge - super duper yummy chocolate peanut butter fudge that we pour over ice cream and leave the rest in the pan so we can snack on it the next day. Yum. I'd love to give you the recipe, but there's not one. Chad once asked for it and this is the answer he got, "Well, you just put in some cocoa, some peanut butter, some sugar, etc. until it looks right." Thanks. Very helpful. ;)
We've been having a lot of fun with our Advent Calendar. Last week (or was it 2 weeks ago now?), one of the days said to dress up fancy for dinner that night. And the girls got to pick out their own dresses!
What a coincidence since Daddy had to wear a tie to work that day anyways... or did Mommy realize how hard it would be to get Daddy to dress up for dinner if he wasn't already in a tie.... ;)
I was just planning on wearing a normal, churchy dress, but then I pulled this little number out of my closet (from my brother's wedding). The girls were thrilled to see that Mommy was dressed like a princess too!
Last week Addie was asked by her teacher to shoot baskets during the varsity girls basketball game.
There were only 2 kids chosen from her class, so it was a pretty big honor. She loved every minute of it and Mommy and Daddy were so proud. :)
Saturday morning, we woke up to this nightmare sight:
Our first snow of the season! Of course the girls were thrilled and wanted to get in it right away! So Daddy and Baba became reindeer and pulled them around the yard.
Then Saturday night we were pelted with more snow and blustery winds. Enough to cancel church Sunday morning.
Saturday night (yes, blizzard night - and we drove 30 minutes away... smart, I know...) was our annual Ugly Sweater Party with our Young Families class at church. Ladies, look out. The following picture might make you just a teensy bit jealous of me... but remember - he's taken.
I know... hot, right? Don't say I didn't warn you.
That sweater vest was actually my dad's that he wore on dates with my mom. If you look closely, you can see brown fringe. Awesome. I'm pretty sure Dad didn't wear a wife beater under it though... But hey, Chad did win a nice prize out of the deal! I was lazy this year and just wore a Grandma Christmas sweatshirt that I had given my mom. This was the first year I didn't make our own sweaters. If you wanna see last year's doozies, click here.
We finished out the week with a lovely church Christmas program. The girls did awesome. And of course we had to pose in front of the ginormous tree.
The following video is for Nana and Papa since they couldn't be there (Although some of my friends might catch glimpses of their little ones on here too). Be sure to listen for Millie (she's the loudest on the last songs, you can't miss her). At one point she's singing a whole beat behind the rest - loudly. Well, we did tell her to sing loudly so we could hear her. She must've decided that singing her own tune would help her stand out too. ;) We tried to get video of Addie, but we could mostly just get her eyes. Sorry for the shakiness in the middle of her part, we were trying to get a better angle, but failed. :(
