Big Weekend

It has a been a fun weekend here at our house. First, my baking addiction is back in full force this year. I made about 200 cookies this weekend- roll out sugar cookies (maybe my best batch ever!), cranberry orange cookies, spritz cookies and peanut butter fudge- and I still want to make cranberry white chocolate chip and snickerdoodles.

Yesterday, we took the girls to see Santa. Having the baby sit in the sleigh is genius because she cried when we tried to get her to sit on Santa's lap. Lila told Santa she wanted a Thomas Train she can ride and a pink castle with blue turrets. Cara showed Santa her paci and her shoes.

We also had our first snow of the year Friday night and Saturday. Lila got bundled up in her snow clothes (yes, those are the same 18 month sized snow clothes she's been wearing for the last two years!) and played outside for quite awhile. Cara had fun watching through the window shouting "Lila!", "Dada!".

She liked falling down in the snow as long as it didn't get in her face.

Today, Lila and I took a ride on the Polar Express to the North Pole. On the way there we got cookies and chocolate milk and got to listen to the Polar Express story. Once we got there, Santa got on the train and rode with us!
Lila was the third one that talked to Santa so she was a little silly and unsure, but she did give Santa a high five and let me hold her down for a picture.
