Last week was a busy week for me!! Mike went out of town to go visit his parents in Missouri. So I was a single parent for 5 days ... and managed to get a lot done!
On Saturday I made about 80 of these babies .....
Saturday I played the role of "awesome mom" == Katie & Maddie had friends over that afternoon, while I scrambled around making a Texas sheet cake for our church's Christmas party that afternoon (completely forgot to make something until about 1 1/2 hours before we were supposed to leave). Katie was part of "Santa's Workshop" in which all the children in our church "shopped" and had their gifts wrapped for their parents & siblings. All of the gifts were made possible by donations from people in our ward. (used items, some new, etc). So, Katie helped little ones shop & wrap presents! Unfortunately, I get the big horrible "Mom wasn't thinking" award that night. I didn't get her a plate of food -- and by the time she was done serving, only turkey was left for her to eat. I felt so bad. :(
Then one day last week my friend Mandi popped into town for a quick visit -- and I was able to love & smooch on this baby girl for a few hours!! I love this Roxie girl!
Isn't she just the cutest thing ever?
