A small attempt to pen those precious moments that seem to go by all too quickly. Things that would easily be forgotten.....may they always be remembered....here's hoping this site never crashes. :)

Cookie Days

We have headed up to Kansas City for T to go to the OU vs. Missouri game. Since we are here we have crashed at our friends the Lynch's house. They were having this really neat event at their church called Cookie Days. It is an incredible outreach ministry that they do for preschool children. They had ALL kinds of FREE activities for your kids to do. We made cookies, frosted cookies, built wooden nativity scenes, made a placemat, made an ornament, made a nativity gingerbread house, and heard the Christmas Story. Our kids LOVED it!! It is one of the neatest things I have seen.

Thanksgiving and Daddy's Birthday

This Thanksgiving we got to go to Nana and Papa's aka T's parents. We had a great time, and the food and fellowship was GREAT!! We also got to play with Nana and Papa's Wii. This is what they got each other for their 40th wedding anniversary. I think that is SO fun!! Everyone had a great time playing. We also celebrated T's birthday the day after.

Happy Birthday Honey!! We made him a german chocolate cake. Half with nuts and coconut and half without. :)

Smores Smores Smores!!!

We had a great Thanksgiving. On our way to T's parents house, we stopped to see some friends. We ate at our favorite steak house and came back to the house to roast some smores in the backyard. The kids thought that was so much fun! We had a fast and fun visit!
