I had so much to say this week and never got around to typing it out. Darn! I did, however, make very good use of my kitchen and I'm patting myself on the back for that. Pinterest is giving me a lot of motivation to cook. In fact, I've made 8 recipes I've found on there in the last month. If you're a kitchen slacker like me, you should do yourself a favor and check it out.
My little one has been giving me a run for my money this week. Let's just say her personality has been BIG. She spent almost all of Wednesday pouting at me with her hands on her hips. Whoever taught her that better hope I don't find out about it.
Thankfully, Miss Personality also gave us some moments to laugh about. Like when she groomed Beckham with the dustpan brush. I think she has a future as a horsewoman.
It was pretty cold here earlier this week, which reminded me to get some warm hats and stuff for winter. We walk Jackson home from school every day and I was told by another mom that pick-up in winter is even more miserable than the first month of school when it is 112 degrees. I cannot even imagine that.
Aber reminds me of a little flapper girl in her hat. She loves it.
Here's Bub all decked out.
I can't help but picture him like this.
Here's Annabeth having one of her big personality moments.
These are the pizza rolls I made a few nights ago. They were pretty yummy!
This is an enchilada stack. I made an absolute mess out of it. My friend Lindsee stopped by for a minute as it was baking and I made her come in and see my potential cooking disaster. Curt walked in at that moment and invited her to stay and eat with us. Um, AWKWARD! Did Lindsee really want to stay for this? Bless her heart, she said yes. (Disclaimer: I ran out of the foil and couldn't follow certain steps of the recipe.) It tasted somewhat like a Mexican pizza from Taco Bell. I will try it again sometime.
We have Griswold-style Christmas lights adorning the house, but so far our only decorations inside are two little trees for Jackson and Annabeth. I've always wanted to do this for the kids and it was a lot of fun. Hobby Lobby has a whole aisle of tiny ornaments. Obviously, Annabeth's tree is pink. It lives in her room since there is no other pink in the house.
Jackson's tree is silver. I bought it at an interior decorator's store that was going out of business a couple months ago. The base was cracked and it was super cheap. By the way, can you tell what movie we just watched?
Jackson's tree is in the breakfast area for all to see. He was a little bitter that I didn't let him have it in his room. Here he is hugging it.
Miss Alicia was here with us. She is so fun!
The highlight of the week was seeing Hillsong Live with a bunch of friends from our church. It was a-mazing. I wish I had pictures.
Supposedly we're putting up our real Christmas tree tonight. I'll believe it when I see it.
Have a great Friday!
