Snowy Days and Sugary Treats

The past few days have been full of cold, blustery days and sweet, sugary treats. The girls have enjoyed some fun time out in the snow (okay, Emmalee enjoyed it a lot more than Tori did-she must take after her cold-natured mommy), and Emmalee had her school Christmas party yesterday. She has a dance performance tonight, but we are waiting to see what the weather will do.

Emmalee was thrilled to get outside and make snow angels. She absolutely loves to play in the snow and could do so for hours on end. However, she despises scarves so her face bears the brunt of the cold weather.

Tori loved being pushed down the hill by big sister, but she wasn't sure about the cold. She also found it a bit difficult to get around in the snow, but I wonder if that wasn't because I had her so bundled up.

This is a picture of Daddy and the girls sledding down the gravel road in front of our house. Mommy was able to push them and then catch up to them to snap a photo. Obviously they weren't "flying" down the hill!

Here are my two best girls helping bake cupcakes for the school party.

Another picture of my budding chefs. By the way, they do not get their love of helping in the kitchen from their mommy.

Here's Emmalee at her class party. They made lots of fun crafty stuff and played pin the nose on Rudolph. She also got lots of great gifts from her classmates. I was thrilled to be able to attend the party, and she had lots of fun!
If you look closely, you will see that these are Rudolph the red nose reindeer cupcakes. I know, creative huh? I have been quite domestic this week, so I think I will take a break and take the girls out to dinner tonight! :)
