Gifts...

Ray's Mom sent the girls an early Christmas present last week - aprons with matching hats (except in the picture the hats are mixed up...). The girls love to cook with me and it was a great gift.


And while they are all smiles here, that only lasted so long. It seems that the favorite apron was the cupcake one. So fighting, trying to take turns, and some more fighting ensued. It made me reconsider some of the gifts I have purchased the girls for Christmas and if I should have gotten the same thing. But now, a few days later, they have gotten over it, and they have been wearing both aprons interchangeably, thank God.

I am hoping to do some baking of treats this weekend. My Grandmother always made so many things at Christmas time, I am hoping to recreate some of that. Any recipes of candy and such you want to pass along to me, feel free...

Also this weekend is our town's Christmas parade where I will be walking with some of the girls in our Daisy troop. The high will only be 50 degrees, and I am hopeful no one will have to go to the bathroom along the parade route...cause that will suck.

You should make some peppermint bark. Its pretty easy and for some reason people seem to go nuts over it!

How cute are they?!

ONLY 50 degrees?! Good thing I think you're awesome or I'd have to throw a shoe in your general direction. Our high for Saturday? MAYBE in the 20's.

Those are adorable aprons! My daughter had an apron/hat on her list too. I figured they would go well with the ez bake oven and cupcake maker!

It is funny that you mention having to use the bathroom during the parade - it is something I have always wondered about. What if you are in a marching band and you have to use the bathroom right in the middle of a parade? Just how my warped mind works.

those aprons are precious! I'm glad they finally worked out a system to share them.
