Book Report Float

Sophie had to make a "book report float."  She chose one of the Harry Potter books.  The scene she chose was a Quidditch match.

SSMS Spelling Bee

Sophie was in the middle school spelling bee.  She ended up getting runner-up.  Way to go Sophie!!!  (Not too shabby for a 6th grader competing against 6th, 7th and 8th graders.)

Luce 4th Grade Christmas Program

Lola played a mom during one of the songs.  So she had to wear an apron.  (Even though this mom hardly ever wears aprons, apparently that is what moms are supposed to do.)

December 2013

While Soph was at a middle school dance, Lola and I headed to Evansville for some Christmas shopping.  We had Krispy Kremes for supper!

This was my first attempt at making these delicious Oatmeal Lace cookies that I found on Pinterest.  Didn't quite turn out like the Pinterest pic. 

HOWEVER, I did eventually get it right.  They were the best cookies I have ever made.

My mother-in-law and father-in-law gave me the Kitchen-Aid mixer that belonged to Brian's grandmother, Maw.  I am so excited!  I can't wait to mix stuff.  You know you are getting older when appliances are this exciting.

This year I also attempted to make cinnamon popcorn for the first time.  It turned out pretty tasty....a little stickier than I hoped but not bad.

I also made caramel corn by myself for the first time.  I haven't made caramel corn since I used to help my Mammaw make it every year.  Again, it was a little stickier than hers always was, not sure what I was doing differently.  I'll have to keep working on it.

Lola and Jack fell asleep on the couch like sweet.
