My New KitchenAid Mixer!

I am beyond thrilled to finally have this KitchenAid Mixer. I have been wanting one for so long. The hubby and I were at Costco and these were on sale, so he told me if I wanted one to just get it! πŸ˜€ Awesome hubby, right?! (I really think he was just tired of hearing about it–haha!!)

Gingerbread Houses galore!

We’ve done our fair share of decorating (and baking) gingerbread houses. When the girls’ grandma & grandpa D were here a couple of weekends ago, they bought a gingerbread house kit while we were at Costco. Grandma thought it would be a fun project for her and the girls to do together. (Jace & I had our date night!) πŸ˜‰

Christmas Eve cookies!

Jace, the girls & I had a fun time making these cookies. The girls loved cutting out the shapes with cookie cutters and loved decorating them, too! They had their little fingers all in that dough and sugar, sneaking in tastes here & there. I mean, who wouldn’t right!? Hehe! πŸ˜‰

Happy Birthday Jadyn!

Today Jadyn turns 4! πŸ˜€

Our fun plans today include a little mini photo session – her 4 year pics! Her dad will be coming home from work early, and G&G will be here later in the afternoon. This evening we are all taking Jadyn out for her Birthday dinner–her choice! She told me yesterday that she wanted to go to McDonalds with the play-place. As for the morning with just her & I, maybe after we do some photos, we will head out for a bit and do something. There are no definite plans for the morning other than taking pictures. read more
