|We also made a kitchen for my nephews Carter and Griffy.|
|The kids were quite the little chefs.|
|Mamaw and Pa made this unbelievable blanket for the boys. They designed it themselves.|
|Here is a better pic of it.|

|Mom finally got my name! We have been doing this name trade deal for years and Mom has never picked me. I was so excited to see what she would get me. She hooked it up with tons of kitchen stuff, all from the Goodwill.|
Here are some of the bowls Mom got me.
And, it just wouldn't be an English Christmas without a gag gift. Levi really had me going. He gave me a nicely wrapped gift, which should have been a clue that I was about to get screwed over :) He said he wanted to give me something special and just for me. He found this wonderfully stylish outfit at where else, the Goodwill. I was totally stoked, and had to try it on immediately. And, to be completely honest I would rather get something like this than an outfit that I would actually wear. We had too much fun trying it on. Just wait till you see Pa's photo. Although, the competition was tough, Pa defintitely took the prize for ba-ringing it. You'll will see. I think he liked it a little too much. Oh, and if you must know I was breaking it down in my new duds during our Wii Micheal Jackson tournament. I looked amazing!
Levi looking HOT, as usual ;)
Doug thought it would be a good pizza boy uniform. We are thinking about mass producing these get-ups and pitching it to Little Ceaser's. You may laugh now, but wait till we are raking in the dough.
And here he is Ladies and Gentlemen! Hold yourselves back. The sexiest man EVER! If the Little Ceasers deal falls through, we always have Ben-Hur (the company Pop works for). There company colors are blue and white. Just imagine all the iron workers showing up to the job-site in this, HA!
Merry Christmas! It was a good one!

Chloe and I made these Poppy Seed cakes today. I substituted Agave nectar for the sugar and used freshly squeezed orange juice for the topping. I love to bake, but it always involves TONS of sugar. I have been trying to substitute other sweeteners. These turned out pretty darn good.

Chloe and I had an awesome day today, just hanging out, cleaning the house, and cooking. She is getting to be such a good helper. She helps me with the dishes and sorting the laundry. She pulls the clothes out of the baskets and says "Poppa's clothes". She is really good at holding the dust pan while I sweep the dirt into it. We danced, laughed, and played with her baby dolls. I have so much fun with her, she is always in a pleasant mood, and brings more joy than I could ever put into words.

We couldn't find Miss Chloe. We looked in her play room, our bedroom, the office, the bathroom, everywhere. We found her nestled in her little buddies on the sofa. She had shimmied back behind them. She thought it was so funny when we finally discovered her there.
