Carlie was so excited to have her very own mug and hot chocolate from Aunt Pam and Uncle Jerry. She chose the one with the Christmas tree on it and felt very grown up drinking from her mug.
Donny really enjoyed his too but I gave him a straw to make it a little less messy.
Carlie and Donny like to stand on the hearth and pretend to being singing duets for church. Carlie usually prefers to do solos and has to be encouraged to let Donny join her.
Our kitchen really isn’t going to be black! It’s a chalkboard wall we made for Carlie and Donny for Christmas.
The first step was to season it by rubbing it all down with calk.
Carlie and Donny really enjoy this wall and spend at least an hour there everyday drawing.
One evening we made brownies and Carlie wanted to make them in the snowman pan. Carlie and Donny help with all the baking and if I try to make something up quickly without their help, they always hear the dishes and come running to help. We added frosting to make it look more like a snowman.
Carlie and Donny still love this hammock. Though it gets harder with them each having to take turns and trying to keep the other one from being hit by the swing.
She wasn’t happy her turn was over.
I’ll try to get a better picture but I made them matching outfits for Sunday. His has a baseball and bat on the front.
All snuggled in for a walk on a chilly evening. I warm up a rice bag to put in the wagon and it keeps them nice and toasty. They even have a special popcorn snack from Auntie Vicki and Uncle Matt.
