Christmas and some BIG news!!

Yesterday and Today brought more Christmas FUN! Melina had jammie and movie day at school and Meeka had her Christmas Party. 
This is the only picture I got from Meeka's Christmas party. She and Carson would not let go of Kacy or I so I could get a picture with Santa. They did not want to sit on Santa's lap, but as long as they were holding on they were interested in touching him. Yesterday evening when Michael got home Meeka told him she saw Santa. Michael asked her if she sat on Santa's lap and she answered, "No. I touch his balls." We just looked at each other and burst out laughing!

After Santa and cookies Kacy took Meeka shopping to the Secret Santa Workshop. The big kids got to shop for everyone else a couple of weeks ago, and since Meeka loves shopping (at Kroger specifically!) I thought she would enjoy it. Kacy told me she had a great time and really thought about what to get for everyone.  I am excited to see what she picked out!

After school Logan and I made Christmas Popcorn for his class party and we made some extra to take to a playdate we had this morning too! I had never made it before, but it looked easy and semi-healthy, so we gave it a whirl! It turned out GREAT!!
First we air popped some white popcorn.

Next we poured in some melted white chocolate and Christmas Sprinkles.

And here's the final product!

Finally we bagged it up for his class!

Last night for our Truth in the Tinsel Day 15 we made a baby in the manger out of homemade clay, which we baked into ornaments. All 4 kiddos enjoyed playing with the clay! This is a 2 day project though because they had to cook and cool off before we could paint.

All the kiddos making their ornaments.

Everyone's final product before baking.

Melina's final product after painting. Logan did not paint his because he was taking forever cleaning up outside. So we just started without him. Tears followed, but maybe someday he'll learn I have a reason for saying things! Then again....maybe not!

Day 16. 
We made the baby Jesus wrapped in swaddling clothes.

Showing off their baby Jesus's.

We have also been very busy making our world famous White Chocolate Chex Mix for everyone. Batch, after batch after batch. Michael decided this week he wanted to give all his managers a tin full for the we have made a TON!!

A counter full of Chex Mix!

Also....BIG news in our house!!! 
Last night Meeka said Meeka for the first time!!! She was so excited and so were we!! She kept saying, "more." Meaning, ask me again what my name is! It was so rewarding and so CUTE!!!
