I got to pick up my sister’s kids from school yesterday and hang out with them all afternoon and evening. My nephew was thrilled.
So was Brooke. I seriously don’t know where she gets these crazy facial expressions from;) This pouty lip occurred when we tried to help her with her ice cream cone. Now that she is always hanging out with the older kids she thinks she is suddenly five years old and no longer needs our help.
I took the kiddos to get them an ice cream cone before dinner because that is what cool aunts do.
And then we came home and made dinner. Grilled chicken nachos with a side of veggies. I don’t know why I always forget about nachos but I should no longer do that because they are so good.
Brooke has abs of steel. When we hold her by her arms she raises her knees up to her chest. You couldn’t pay me to be able to do something involving that much core strength.
I really wish I could ship each of you a dozen of these sugar cookies. It’s the thought that counts right?
The Candice and I had our weekly date night last night at a new place in Provo called Swig.
These types of places are all the rage in Utah right now. Cookies and dirty (aka coconut flavored) diet cokes with my all time favorite type of ice. My parents need to install an ice machine that makes this type of ice.
For the random of the day… Candice and I were talking about Christmas presents for her kiddos last night and she brought up American Girl Dolls and a flood of memories came to me. I was obsessed with those dolls as a little girl and I asked for a doll/accessories every Christmas. Did any of you guys have American Girl Dolls growing up? What type of things were on your Christmas lists?
Parents reading: What is on your kid’s Christmas lists this year?
What’s on your Christmas list this year (yes, I realize it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet)?
Running: inside, outside, not today?
-Outside… I may actually completely freeze this morning because we are going a little too early.
