As always, I’m linking up with Darci & friends today to share my Five on Friday!
I honestly TRIED to come up with just one thing that wasn’t Christmas related…but…well, I failed.
Tis the season, right?!?
Last weekend we made a couple of Christmas crafts to send to Arden’s grandparents.
Some turned out…
And others not so much 🙂
But Arden enjoyed getting messy, regardless!
I got this text from my sister on Wednesday night and I’ve been laughing ever since…
Apparently Chris and Maren had a discussion at the lake this summer about coal turning into diamonds (that’s a normal uncle-niece convo, right?!)…well apparently Maren tucked it away, just waiting for the perfect opportunity to impress everyone with her weird little “Uncle Chris factoid”. I’m telling you, the girl doesn’t forget anything!
Anyway, this story pretty much sums those two characters up…
My husband, the keeper of odd facts.
And Maren, the little smarty who loves her goofy uncle 🙂
Last Friday night I went to a cookie exchange at a friend’s house and had so much fun! Chris thought it was pretty fun too….no, he didn’t go…he just waited anxiously for us to get home so he could dig into the cookies!
I took one of my childhood favorites–Holly!
Not only are they super easy, but they’re delicious too…
And in the words of Pi Phi house mom, Mom Cody, they’re “virtually calorie-free!” 😉
Speaking of Christmas cookies, we made a batch of sugar cookies this week and Arden got to help decorate…one of them 🙂 Maybe next year she can be trusted with the sprinkles…
I love my Christmas tree at night. That’s all.
You may have seen Arden’s excessive list for Santa that I posted here, but I thought I would share mine as well.
1. A dust-buster (I know…settle down, Vanessa!)
2. A pair of these…
3. And these…
OR a lump of coal…because we all know it will turn into diamonds in a hundred years! 😉
Happy Friday, friends!!!
Have a great weekend!
