Weekend Highlights

This past weekend was the annual Leadership Retreat for our home church in Oak Harbor.  My parents and the Majors went over and so naturally Maggie & I watched the girls plus 3 dogs!  Adding the dogs to the picture sure made it a challenge!

Maggie had to work on Friday, so I spent the day with the girls.  We had fun making Oatmeal Reeses Pieces cookies together....yum! Around 12:30 we headed out to pick up Dennis and Lindsey.  Selena left her minivan for us to drive around and it was so cute when I got the girls all buckled in and ready to go because Lilly piped up and said, "It's kinda like you're the mama!  If I say mama it's because that's what I think you are."  Haha...anyways...we took Dennis to a class and drove Lindsey around to different places to pick up applications for a job.  The girls did SO good!  I came all prepared with books and coloring books but we didn't even need to use them.  The snacks I brought came in handy though!  We picked up Maggie so she could spend her lunch break with us, and after taking her back to work we headed over to Starbucks!  I told the girls I would buy them either chocolate milk or hot chocolate since they were so good...of course they loved the idea of having hot chocolate and wanted to make sure they got a straw too, because according to Olivia a straw makes it taste like coffee!  I tell you, that girl had chocolate all over her mouth and clothes!  Eventually we made it back home and started to settle down for the night.  As I was outside with one of the dogs, I noticed it was starting to snow! We were all excited about that!  When we put the girls to bed we told them we would play in the snow the next day and even have hot chocolate afterwards...they liked that! Later when I went to bed, Olivia woke up and as were laying there I told her that we should close our eyes and go to sleep so we can get up and play in the snow.  It was so cute...she said, "Ok, but I don't want a straw in my hot chocolate."  Haha...when we finally got out to play in the snow we couldn't have been out there 2 minutes before Olivia started talking about wanting hot chocolate.  We had alot of fun spending time with the girls, and we even made two cakes on Saturday amidst the chaos!  We made a princess cake for Lilly's birthday and a football cake for Dennis' birthday.  They turned out really well! 

We let the girls play in the snow out on the deck in their pjs. That way we could watch them, but didn't have to be out there. :)

Poor little Chip was cold! He was running through the snow wimpering.

Dennis really wanted the princess cake. ;)
