it was pouring down rain, cold rain, at that, but that didn't stop us,
we decided to take Olivia to see Santa at the mall.
I wasn't really sure how she would do.
I was hoping for a cute "happy" picture of her and "Ho Ho,"
but as you can tell from the picture above,
that was not the case.
She did not like Santa.
So all of us had to get our picture taken with Santa.
it looks real lovely, not so much).
After the lovely Santa melt-down,
we went to eat lunch and came home and relaxed.
It was a nice quiet evening at home.
we woke up to it snowing!
Our first snow of the year!
I don't know why, but I've been one of those crazy people
who has been wishing and dreaming of SNOW!! =)
So finally, it's here. YAY!
So anyways, we got up and went to church
and then I needed to go back to Wal-Mart to get some
more milk and extra food so we wouldn't have to get out anymore.
Before we left for church
I put some pinto beans on in the crock-pot.
I don't know what it is about winter
and the cold weather and the snow,
but I was CRAVING a warm, comfort-food type of meal.
So when we got home,
I fixed some mashed potatoes with gravy, cornbread,
added summer sausage to the beans and baked a picnic ham
& then I made some chocolate chip cookies.
