Saturday is our annual Family Baking Day! My mom usually comes up and we bake several kinds of cookies to share and to keep. Each of the kids picks a different kind to make and we spend the day measuring and mixing and sampling too! When we are all done we pack up some tins to deliver to a few special people in town. We always give a tin to the sweet older woman up the road who likes to have them with her tea, and a wonderful man who creates the most beautiful light display in his yard every year. I also plan on taking some to my dad's old roommate, Marshall. He has no grandchildren, so he adopted my children as his own! Dinner will be takeout pizza and then we will attend Mass at 7:30, where Rhett will be serving. He always looks forward to that!
Sunday we will travel a little to attend Steve's family Christmas. Steve is the youngest of seven, so there are quite a few of us. In fact, this year we are having the gathering at a hall and having it catered. Works for me! After the party, we will come home, unwind, and relax before beginning the last week before Christmas. Well... that is our busy family weekend. I hope yours is happy and jolly and cozy, whatever your plans may be!
Flynn was all smiles on our way to "Rhett's school" last week for Rhett's Christmas play.
We are enjoying our December cupcake delivery...the best one? Cookie dough!
Madison and Ryan all ready for The Snowball Dance last weekend.
They were all set to dance in their matching Converse!
Me and my girl...how did she grow up so quickly? : )
