Our Weekend

Monday, December 8, 2014

On Friday we welcomed a new baby to the family so on Saturday Bug and I made the trip to the hospital to meet her new cousin.  Joe and Jessica officially said hello to sweet, little Jon Burl . 

We then made our way over to pick up some things for the day, we had a birthday party and a family Christmas to go to, so as soon as we finished shopping we headed back home to get ready.

First up we had sweet Haven's 1st birthday party, Haven is a daycare friend of Bugs and such an incredibly fun little girl.

They served pancakes with snow, which were delish and such a fun food idea for kids, fruit and gingerbread sleighs.

We then had Spencer's family Christmas.

her 1st guitar and Christmas gift
I made my mom's Oreo Delight [recipe below] and Bacon Stuffed Deviled Eggs.  Deviled eggs are my jam but Spence HATES it when I make them because they stink up the whole house... but he also hates eggs all together so go figure.

Oreo Delight
2 small packages french vanilla pudding
1 8oz pkg cream cheese
3 cups milk
1 tub of Cool Whip
1 package Oreos

Mix together pudding, [softened] cream cheese, milk and Cool Whip.  Layer 1 row of Oreos on the bottom of a trifle dish, half the pudding mixture on top, another row of Oreos, remaining pudding mixture and last row of Oreos.  That's it!

I did try to start working/ playing with my camera again to see if I can once again try to learn to love it- I have a love/ hate relationship with it and rarely get it out anymore.  I decided to see if Bug would let me take some Christmas pictures of her and this is what I got...

So these were with my phone 

I have pinned a couple of tutorials on Pinterest to give me the run down on the basics so we will see where it leads; its just too easy to whip my phone out and snap a quick photo.

I also ordered our Christmas cards right before the weekend so I'm hoping they come in sooner rather than later since I always snazz them up a bit with fun fonts and calligraphy.
