Monday was my birthday, and we celebrated at our favorite restaurant, Pappadeaux!
12th birthday celebration with this guy!
We tried out Sub Zero Ice Cream for dessert. They make your ice cream to order using liquid nitrogen. The kids were mesmerized!
Because asking for a nice, normal picture is just asking for too much!
On December 6th, we woke up to see that St. Nicholas had visited.
Last week's nail color was Sinful's Supernova.
On Friday night, we goofed around!
And Ari performed dances from The Nutcracker for us!
On Saturday morning, Ari's dance school had a Christmas party.
She took a picture with Santa on Friday at her school, but on Saturday, she FLIPPED out when he walked into the party. It took multiple teachers to coax her to come up to get a gift, and she'd only smile if Ms. Carol put some space between them! She wouldn't even shake his hand!
Saturday night had me baking and making over 150 cookies: sugar for the kids to decorate, peppermint oreos, and chocolate peanut butter Ritz.
I actually did not sample a SINGLE cookie this year! I'll share this recipe on Thursday's Try It Thursday this week.
I didn't take a single picture during our Christmas cookie exchange party, so here's the aftermath.
The whole week was really cold, and on Sunday, we were in shorts!
Our friends brought so many cookies! Here are some of our packages:
I hope you had a great weekend! I'll be back on Wednesday for the December edition of Stranded. See you soon!
