Lots has happened this last week, I just haven't felt like blogging, but before I get too behind I better do it.
First of all, it's freakin cold outside! (feels like -27C today they said, and supposed to be colder this weekend, but then it goes back to what it has been) I think every year people forget how to drive on icy roads! I almost got rear ended and saw the truck swerve into the oncoming lane all the way across so they wouldn't hit me. I had to slam on my breaks because the guy in front of me pulled over to turn and at the last second changed his mind and swerved back in front of me. Loser. Anyways, in other words I hate driving on icy roads and it's ridiculously cold!
So we had our ward Christmas party last Friday and the kids had a great time. I made our gingerbread house with the girls that day for it and I have never been so stressed in my life over building a gingerbread house! It kept falling apart because the icing wouldn't hold. So I had to hold it together carefully because it was covered in icing while the girls decorated. I ended up putting it in the fridge and it stayed together finally. Anyways so we won "most fanciful" for ours. The girls loved it!
Our Disney princess castle!
So after the party Dustin carried it out and some boys were playing basketball and the ball ended up smashing right ontop of our gingerbread house breaking it into a bunch of pieces! I was devastated. That thing took me a lot of work! The one boy was laughing saying "oh that was such a good shot!" I'm like, "it's not funny" and another lady was like "ya it's not funny" I tried to be ok with it but all I could think of is how Kyla would react and I didn't appreciate the kid laughing his head off. I felt so bad for the girls cuz it broke. Anyways I told her and she asked "well can I still eat it?" I said "yes of course" so she was happy with that. So whatever, it was all good in the end. I'm a little hormonal too, so don't mess with me and my gingerbread house!
Those who are wondering, I got the gingerbread house at wal-mart, I saw it and it was fate. I had to get it!
They had games at the party, and they played donut on a string. Kyla did good but after all the cheering she got embarrassed and started crying. She has a thing lately about all the attention on her and the laughing. Although she loves to speak in primary up front and was so excited for the primary presentation. So i've kind of nailed it to the laughing thing, and I think she thinks we are laughing AT her not with her in a good way. So we have to be careful with that lately, she's a sensitive girl.
Do you like Rudolf? I drew it, thank you very much. Kyla said that's how she knew where the nose was, because I drew it.
Somehow I added these next few but they didn't work on the post and I just realized they weren't there, so these are more from the party of the girls just doin stuff.
Kyla had her school Christmas concert last night and it was the cutest thing ever! They had to wear a toque and scarf for it and they sang 3 songs. She looked so cute. Jill got it on video so i'll post it when I get it from her. I'm glad I wasn't the only freak mom in the aisle getting pictures. This one mom right in front kept standing up waving hugely, yelling at her kid to get them to see her. It was hilarious. Her kid must have been the one screaming the songs the entire time... ha
Emma and Kyla, the cutest 4 years olds around.
Singin her stuff
Making crafts in her class after.
She loved it, but she was so exhausted after. That's what happens when you get up at 5am dear!
I'd hate to ruin this post of beautiful-ness but I must share what my husband had to do this week, because the guys from work "told him too".
I made him shave it before Kyla's concert. I definitely wear the pants when it come to this hideousness.
