Our good friends Jeff, Amanda and sweet little girls Kate and Caroline came over for Christmas dinner. It was so much fun to have them. Brody and Kate are 6 months apart and have lots of fun together. Thanks to Nana for making a wonderful feast on Christmas!
What started out to be a gingerbread house ended up being a gingerbread carport!! I made the mistake of buying a house that had to be put together (most come pre-assembled and you just decorate) and no matter how much frosting we tried to use...the house just wouldn't stay together. Brody was a good sport and just kept saying "oh no" as everything started to crumble!
Cookie baking with Nana at Christmas means serious business. There is no pre-made dough bought from the store it's all made from scratch. So Nana's little helper jumped up in his tower for cookie making and decorating. First they baked, then took a break to eat breakfast and jumped into decorating which was Brody's favorite part!
Nana rolled out all the dough and Brody got to do all the cookie cutting
Decorating with Nana
Lots of sprinkles...Nana just let him dump and decorated as his heart desired!
Brody LOVES monsters or anything that might look like one. So when i was at the store I saw they had the little pompoms with eyes and antennas so i picked up a bag. Little did i know the fun he would have! He was so excited that they matched his pj's even.
I wish every small child in the world had a Nana like Brody and Cam's!!! At Christmas Nana had Brody help her make meat loaf for dinner one night. She had him crack the eggs, add the crackers and mix...with his hands. He's such a little helper in the kitchen and Nana has loads of patience so it worked out beautifully! Nana also looks smashing in her new apron that Brody and Cam got her for Christmas.
Sweet little Cam at 1 year 2 months. He's a spirited little guy, who's smiley and happy but boy does he have a temper, especially when he doesn't get his way. He's still attached to his puppy dog lovie and goes nowhere without it. It brings him much comfort and security when he's upset.
