the first real snowstorm of the year

....started in the kitchen...


making its way to the livingroom...

with the help of  a few sparkly little lights

the snow plows won't be here till spring to clear up its aftermath...

being "snowed in" isn't such a bad deal after all!
where's the hot cocoa and whipped cream?

preparing for a big birthday

this year we are doing things a little differently...

each of the kids took 24 paper circles,

decorated them,

and wrote little "gifts" they could give to 
Baby Jesus
for His
birthday this year.

as the pull one out of their envelope and do the task on the back,
they staple them to the string in the living room and make a paper garland.

i ran out of colored paper so we used white,


i think im going to have to have them refill their envelopes due to their avid  desire to
"clean the toilet" "make mama's bed" "clean out the fridge" "fold the laundry" "dust the cobwebs" etc.

the next paper garland will be colored and i can't wait to show you  how beautiful it will be

belgian waffles

 were not meant to be made this way...

you will soon realize that flipping the waffle maker over onto a bowl, will cause much shattering of one of your favorite already chipped breakfast bowls.

(you may also realize that your ten yr old, is now wearing the same shoe size as you...as a matter of fact, he's wearing your shoes to help with the clean up...uh, when did that happen?)

your waffles will end up looking not so belgian...

and your toddlers will look something like...


 my advice..

put a lot of whipped cream on whatever it is, and call it good
