Seriously, do they do this stuff on purpose?

Aaron was on his way home while I am home baking away. We are serving refreshments tomorrow at church and I am trying to get things made so I am ahead of the game for the holidays. I called and asked him to pick up more butter, eggs, chocolate chips, vanilla, sweetened condensed milk and brown sugar. Okay now that I have typed that you are probably wondering what the heck I started with, but it's been a baking marathon day so I've made a lot and obviously ran out of a lot.

I love my husband dearly and I am happy that he stopped at Hy-Vee for me but he brought home Double Strength Vanilla, Dark Brown Sugar, and Fat Free Sweetened Condensed Milk.

Last week I added mascara to the grocery list because I kept forgetting it when I went to Target...I showed him the tube, wrote the exact brand and exact color on the list and specifically said, "it is expensive, so don't buy it if you can't find the exact one"...what do you think the outcome was?

I think he does this on purpose just so he's never asked again.

I am really on-line looking up a good frosting drizzle recipe, got to go.

First Early Out due to Snow

Nicholas woke up yesterday (Monday) at 6am, he bounced into our bed excited to give an update that it had snowed! I am not sure what prompted him to pop out of bed at 6am and look out his bedroom window because we had not discussed the possibility of snow but he was SO excited! He told me that he had to wear a hat, gloves, snow pants and boots or he wouldn't be allowed to play in the grass for recess and that his leg might turn red and fall off. I laughed and asked him who told him that. He told me that his teacher told him his leg might get bitten and turn red and fall off if he didn't dress warm.

Needless to say he got all bundled up and stood around in the hallway patiently waiting for me to get ready for work in hopes that I would give him permission to wake his sissy. When I finally gave in he jumped up in her bed, said sissy, sissy it SNOWED! He opened her curtain and let her look outside. They both squealed with delight and begged to play outside after school.

Today was favorite boy's first early out day due to the snow. He was so excited to get to leave school early and eat an afternoon snack at daycare.

Unfortunately, Favorite Girl's Holiday program was scheduled for this evening and it was postponed due to the yucky weather. We are patiently waiting to hear when it will be rescheduled for. We are excited to watch her and her best buddy Adam perform on stage.

I can't post any pics because FG accidentally dropped my camera in September and I still haven't replaced it. I hope Santa is good to me!

...because we want to keep in touch
