Green Beans Dilemma

Mia: Mommy, do I have to eat the green beans?

Mommy: Yep!

Mia: But, I hate green beans.

Mommy: You need to eat at least three on your plate. That's not too bad.

Mia: But, Mommy, I can't eat this one.

Mommy: Why?

Mia: It's really cute mom, I just can't eat it.

Mommy: Well, you'll just have to eat one of my ugly ones.

Mia: (grumbling...) Well, that one looks really cute too.

My Snow Angel!

Here is the first snow fall in December. Mia was so excited, she got completely dress in snowpants and boots, gloves and scarf to play in the lightly dusting snow.

She really wanted to make a snow angel.
There it is...
She was inside 2 minutes later.

Christmas Kookies!!

I'm behind on my Blogging, so forgive me if I slam you with stuff.

For Christmas Mia got a small baking set, so we made Christmas cookies together...
Here we are in the kitchen making our Sugar Cookies.

Don't our cookies look so cute...

Mia had the best time cutting out the shapes. And the cookies were really good.

I woke up the day after Christmas to Mia yelling, "Mommy, Julia is making a mess."
So I asked how, and all she needed to say was, "Well, she got into the flour...." and I was up. She managed to get her top off and put on the Blinking Rudolph Nose. She's so talented.
