Confession Friday 12-2!

I confess that Grace's excited expression...

You know, this one:

...is not nearly so funny when her face is a foot away from yours and she's sitting on your chest with a heavy object in her hands. In fact...it's downright terrifying.

I confess that one of the girls' biggest christmas gifts it sitting right in the open in our bedroom in a plain cardboard box and has been for weeks...right under their noses and they have no idea. Oh, how I love the benefits of this age of innocence.

I confess that we have five Christmas parties in seven days to attend starting this Sunday. Whoa. Time to bust out the egg nog!

I confess that our dvd player bit the dust, and I feel like we've lost a dear friend. Daytime TV just doesn't tickle my fancy.

I confess that both Eric and I got some pre-holiday pampering this week, and now I'm blonder than I have been in a really long time. And I LOVE it. No jokes, please. :)

I confess that we were behind on the girls' shots so we had to do make-ups this week. Boy does Evelyn want to make sure we never forget again....

They're still hanging there. :)

I confess that I wrapped the girls' first Christmas present with masking tape. Keepin' it classy over here.

I confess that I haven't worn panty hose since junior high, and I'm thinking I'm going to have to break down and buy the hose so I don't freeze my nubs off in my little black dress. Ladies, where do you buy your panty hose? They still exist, right? ;)

I confess that I think I'm becoming a hypochondriac. My body is falling apart, and I must have some rare disease that hasn't been discovered yet.

I confess that the thermostat war has already begun in our house for the season, but this year I think that there is a third party involved. Eric insists that I bump up the heat sometimes when I swear I didn't. But how do I convince him otherwise? Err...Gracie did it. I don't think so.

I confess that we are gearing up for a major sugar rush around here, because this weekend is our annual Cookie Baking Extravaganza! And I need your help. We're thinking about adding a new kind of cookie to our list this year. So let me know if you have a favorite you just can't live without at christmas time! We are already doing: chocolate chip, oatmeal, peanut butter, peanut butter blossoms, and pecan puffs. :)

I confess that I'm really missing some blogs out there. I hope some of you haven't given up blogging for good!

I confess that Evelyn's reactions to our festivities last night were so cute! Here's a little preview. :)


Gracie was a little confused, haha.

That's it for this week! We have a full weekend of baking and partying to do, so I don't know if the internet world will be hearing much from me for the next few days. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Panty hose...what's that?! Kidding. Pretty sure you can get some at Alco.

And why the heck aren't you making sugar cookies!!!???

Adrien said...

Haha, we're debating on sugar cookies. The cutting out and decorating takes a lot of time when we're doing so many others. So if we don't think of any other kind, those are it! ;)

My newly discovered favorite cookies are brown sugar cookies. My neighbor made some for us a few weeks ago and they were awesome! I kept going back and forth trying to decide if they were sugar cookies or snickerdoodles. Yuuummm :)

My sisters and I were just talking about panty hose with our mom over Thanksgiving. She was surprised to see us wearing them since we would always throw the biggest fit when she would make us wear those thick white ones to church every sunday. Let me tell you - panty hose have come along way since then. I see them everywhere, but I usually pick mine up at Target.

I don't own any panty hose and haven't worn it since junior high either! haha I kind of forget it even exists! :)
You could make some snickerdoodle cookies, those are always a good Christmas time hit :)

Adrien said...

Hahaha, I love all the panty hose confessions!

Snickerdoodles! Of course! I love snickerdoodles. :)

Gooey butter cookies are one of my favorites! I like making them with confetti cake mix to add some color to those cookie trays!
I confess that I think Ty is a stock market genius. He has been walking around saying " GE" for over a week now and the other day it was up over 15%! I think Josh is still kicking himself that he didn't listen to our 2 year old, lol!

Cake box cookies are easy and great!

I confess that I would post a confession here, but I haven't written my blog yet and don't want to only have, like, two for you to read there!

If you like rolos, you should try making rolo cookies. SUPER easy and so addicting. I found them on pinterest...of course.
