Well, Hello There!

Lets catch up, shall we?

The past week has been a busy one, as I am sure it has been for all of you. Here is what we've been up to over the last few days...

Sewing. I'm determined to teach myself how to sew, and here is my first completed project! My mother helped me get started on this apron while she was visiting, and I love how it turned out. I can't believe I actually did pleats all by myself. Yay!

Christmas parties. Griffin and I were invited to Camden's class party last Friday. Griffin had so much fun sitting with his big brother. Camden's classmates had fun feeding an endless supply of Smarties to Griffin.

Angel Cakes. I made this Apple Crisp Pie for a gentleman at the Veteran's Home.

Fascination. The boys continue to be obsessed with talking Story time Bear.

Snow. For the second year in a row, we are actually getting snow that doesn't melt away by noon time. It is so wonderful, and so much fun for the boys.

Sledding. That would be Grampa and Gramma Arnett having a go!
Sipping hot cocoa. The boys have been enjoying their hot cocoa with marshmallows nearly every day.
A morning walk through the snowy streets.
Donuts. From time to time, little boys need to eat donuts. With frosting. And sprinkles.

Surprises. The UPS man knocked on my front door today, and delivered a box containing ALL of this chocolate. You see, my college roommate and dear friend Kirsten works for Lindt, and sent me this lovely box of Swiss goodness. Okay...the label on the box actually said "The Arnett Family", but I am pretending it is all for me. I suppose I shouldn't be so greedy, this close to Christmas, though...
Steve's parents are here for Christmas, so we are doing lots of playing, visiting, eating, relaxing, and enjoying the season, and I hope you are doing the same! Now, I must go and do some Christmas baking. More on that, later!

Great pics! So glad you got the chocolate in one piece (or pieces)- that's a little something just to say merry Xmas and thanks for writing this great blog!

Does your friend need my mailing address to send out more chocolates? I'd be glad to test and review any and all! ;)

Hope you and the family have a very Merry Christmas, it looks like you are surely headed that way!

I can only imagine how thrilling it must have been for little Griffin to visit his big brother's classroom!

Nice job with the apron. How proud Camden must of been to have his mom and little brother visit his classroom! Love the photos, especially nice one of you Heather with Griffin. Have a Merry Christmas and let us know how the drink went!
