We kind of have a thing for Chick-fil-A.
Even Brooke agrees that it is a good idea to trade in the toy from the kids meal for an ice cream cone.
After lunch my brother (the one from AZ) took us to Toys”R”Us and told Brooke to pick out a toy for her Christmas present. The shopping cart stole her heart and she pushed it up and down all of the aisles.
The beginning of another snow storm. Yes, that makes me extremely depressed because it means today is another day on the treadmill because it is so slippery.
Tradition Day #18 was coloring Christmas pictures for Brooke to give to people for Christmas. She actually did a really good job.
We had chicken, veggies and rice for dinner and then 5 of my nieces and nephews from out of town came over. Brooke did 100 laps with a smile on her face around the couch while they chased her.
And then we celebrated my niece’s bday with my mom’s famous lemon bread.
You have to try this recipe within the next year. It is your homework.
