Milk & Cookies Party

This year we held our 1st Annual Milk & Cookies Party. So, how exactly do one host a Milk & Cookies Party?

You start with a guest list of little ones, you know, your kids friends from church. You invite them to come in their pj's for a night of eating cookies, drinking milk, and watching The Polar Express. You tell them to ask their Daddies & Mommies to come so they can drink coffee and hot cocoa and be in the Big Kid Room.

12 minutes before they arrive you have an Aw Nuts I Forgot To Wash The Cups Moment and you quickly wash em' up.

You make lots and lots of Sugar Cookies that you and your boys rolled, cut, baked and decorated together. Throw in Sugar Plums, Candy Canes, Gingerbread Men with no decorations because you suck at cookie decorating but it's the thought that counts, and some good cheer.

Smile that your 2 year old has friends who come from godly families and thank God that he has surrounded you with such precious people to live life with. You remember how a couple of years ago you felt like you didn't have family friends to do life with and laugh at the fact that tonight your driveway looks like a Mini-Van car lot. Swagger Wagons if you will (Click Here) (pause music on my blog and turn up the volume).

Robes, Jammies, House Shoes AND Spiked Hair...too much cuteness for one picture.

Did you know that if you suggest to sweet little girls that it would be really cute to rest their little faces on their hands they will do it?

Every one got to take home a Happy Birthday Jesus cup. Every party needs a Happy Birthday Jesus cup, ya know what I'm sayin'?

Nary a crumb left behind, girls amaze me.

Living life with other families is something that doesn't just happen. You gotta make time for it. We love these people.

Aww look, the Bugs & Sunshines getting their baby fix.

Do we need one or two more? One says yes one says no.

Who is in need of refreshment? That's what we thought. Hot, hot yea we got it, hot chocolate.

Merry Christmas!

Cute! I'm going to try to make gingerbread cookies with Anna in the next few days. I don't know how to decorate them either. :)
