We are hosting Christmas Eve dinner this year.
And we're taking the easy way out.... Pizza!!
But we are making some homemade desserts.
The kiddos helped me with the Chocolatey Pumpkin Bars.
(*please excuse my insanely messy kitchen!)
|Milo was giving his last chocolate chip to Xandra - such a sweetheart!!|
And then, the hardest part....
Waiting for them to bake up!
After all that prep, it was play time!
Milo's is currently into Avengers.
I love watching that imagination at work- even though it's totally different from Xandra's.
A lot more "fighting" & smashing & general destruction.
I've said it before, I'll say it again-
Boys are simply wired differently than girls!
|"Mama wook! Faw dow (fall down)!"|
And looked up with the most beautiful expression.
Then she moved over to the crayons & started drawing.
(ice cream sandwiches & milk - really good, but really thick!)
The kiddos were in heaven!!
We had a really good day yesterday.
Even though we were essentially stuck in the house all day (sniffly noses & coughs don't play well in the cold outside!), we had a really good time together (without too many fights!).
Linking up with Stephanie this week!
