Daddy's Girl

Mackenzie got used to having her daddy home with all of the snow and now that he doesn't have to work from home she is asking for him non-stop. We made a little video for daddy!! We love you! You are the best daddy ever!

And the first recipe post is....


Sausage Balls! Sorry you vegetarians! Thank you to a dear family friend that gave me this recipe when I asked for it. I made these yesterday and they tasted just like they did when this friend made them for our Church's pot luck breakfasts! Oh I am so happy to have this recipe!!!!

3 cups Bisquick (I used Krusteaz)
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1lb ground pork sausage mild or hot, whichever you prefer. I prefer mild.

Preheat oven to 350. Throw all the makings into a bowl and mix! I found it easier to use my kitchen aid with the dough hook. Form into 1 inch balls and bake on a cookie sheet for about 15 minutes, or until done. It makes quite a bit so I put some of the uncooked ones into a ziploc and into the freezer. Next time I might try brushing a little melted butter over top of them.

A chat with Santa...

Kenzi has been talking about Santa and even says "lap lap" when talking about him. When asked if she wants to sit on him lap, she says yes. When she meets him in person it's a different story. She's not sure what to think and just stares at him with a blank face. This Santa at the Lights of Christmas was so sweet, he came over to her in her stroller and just talked to her. When he started to blow her kisses, she smiled and blew one back. Melts my heart!

Our insane amount of snow

We woke up to another couple of inches of snow this morning. I think we now have about a foot of it. We took Mackenzie out to play and she loved it. It was hard for her to walk since it was almost up to her knees!! It is still snowing!!

Walking in a winter wonderland

I can't believe how much snow we have! We got 2 inches on Sunday (when these pictures were taken) and today an additional 4 inches fell over the course of the day. Tonight we are supposed to get more! Mackenzie is loving the snow! However, today she didn't like being out in it as much since the wind had picked up and the falling snow was hitting her in the face. We lost power for an hour or so today while Kenz napped. Matt and I were pretty bored so we played Monopoly. Having all of this snow is making it very difficult to get our Christmas shopping done. I finally got the majority of our cards in the mail today. I hope my family in Virginia gets them in time. They should. For now we will enjoy our winter wonderland!

Daily December

Jessica Turner gave me a terrific idea. A scrapbook titled Daily December that has a picture from every day of the month. AWESOME! Jessica is such a talented scrapper. I seriously wish I had her talent. She has a cute new baby too. I have been taking pictures of Mackenzie NON-STOP. If you are my friend on facebook then you have seen a few of them. I love this idea. For now it's all just pictures, I can't wait to get the scrapbook started. Anyway, I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you!

A quick update




Mackenzie is learning so much so fast lately. She is obsessed with motorcycles and makes the "vroom" sound with hand motions. We took for another hair cut yesterday and she did rather well sitting on my lap. She is soooo happy lately too. Mackenzie loves to play talk on the phone. She says "hello" now too. Christmas is going to be fun this year I'm sure. Here is a video and some pictures! Oh and a picture of the special birthday present Mackenzie and Matt made for me. The first picture with the Christmas tree is after her haircut, the phone picture is before.
