A Good Day

Yesterday we woke up to lots of snow and 1 degree temperature outside :) so we did not venture out to church. We stayed home and had such a lovely day. Natalie made cookies with me while the littles took naps. I picked Peanut Butter Blossoms because there is plenty for her to help with. She unwrapped all the kisses (after she found out that's what they were called, she gave each one a kiss after unwrapping it) and she rolled the dough balls in the sugar. Then she helped put the kisses on after baking. She also dipped a wet finger in the sugar a few more times than I probably realized :) Good thing we don't care about family cooties.

There was some dress-up.

and some Christmas Spirit (or pouting, where Layla was concerned.) This one's for you, Granny and Papa.


  1. Your blog loads really slow for me and maybe other readers. You should check it with a speed test and make sure it's okay.

  2. This is priceless! Now, I knew Layla was pouting (JUST like you!) before I even read your narrative. ...and...WHAT is Casey wearing on his head? I love men who are secure in their manhood--I'm married to one after all :)

    Love Mom
    PS: the speed is not on you--if it zips right up in Mongolia, it should zip right up anywhere, eh?

  3. I think that kissed cookies taste better than any. How special are these memories, they are priceless. Just think of the age difference. Your memories are all over the world via internet, mine are in a box waiting to be put in a scrapbook. - Aunt Teddi
