Merry Christmas and peace to you all!SHARE
I love being invited to Christmas festivities. I don’t want to miss a thing. But, truth be told, cookie exchange parties always make me a little nervous. I’m not exactly known for my culinary talents.
But I can copy a recipe (kind of … anyone remember last year when I failed to notice that one batch of cinnamon roll dough made 7 pans and I ended up with something like 35 pans of cinnamon rolls?!?).
It’s actually been several years since I’ve been invited to a cookie party and when I got an invite this year I quickly scoured pinterest to see what kind of cute concoction I could make.
Or better yet … that Savannah and I could make together. We bought some Nutter Butters and began working …
We worked …
And worked …
He’s cute, huh?
And kept on working until we had almost 6 dozen Santa Nutter Butters.
I think these might have been my favorite cookies I’ve ever “made” mostly because there was absolutely no cooking involved.
And y’all … I totally wasn’t embarrassed to walk in with this platter of cookies!
It was a Christmas miracle.
But as fun as it was, I’m not planning on going back for a LONG time.SHARE
So I told her we probably wouldn’t go.
Sic ’em Bears!SHARE
A week or so ago our elementary school had it’s fall festival. Tons of fun and plenty of sugar.
Until then …. happy pinning (or whatever it is that you do that wastes time)!SHARE
7. We worked on Savannah’s birthday party invitations. Her birthday was in September. I absolutely had to get this done for her. We made progress! (We are doing an “Amazing Race” party. Ideas welcomed.)
And I just wanted to remember.SHARE
Jacob has LOVED playing soccer this year.
If you are thinking to yourself .. wait, I thought he was playing football …. well, you’d be right. He’s doing both. We’re nuts.
I prefer soccer. Lots fewer injuries. But alas, he wanted to play both and we’re doing church league soccer which is very low key. I love it. It’s the exact opposite of football which is … practice all the time.
Anyway … a week or two ago Jacob made a goal. I wasn’t there (volleyball tournament) but another mom caught it on film and Bill told me all about it.
My two favorite things about the video are:
1. I showed it to Jacob and told him he should show his sisters. He said … “well, can I fast forward through the part where I fall down?” (maybe he does take after me a little bit after all!).
2. The chest bump with his best friend Josh after the goal …. watch them walk all the way back to their places.
The chest bump is Jacob and Josh’s favorite part of the video too.
I love boys.
