It's a wonderful life!

The day started out with a trip to Gran Lutheran to attend Cailee & Nora's Christmas program. We had gotten an inch of new fluffy white stuff and it was a beautiful morning to head out to a country church! They did a great job! I tried to get pictures of them but my battery died :(

Cailee came over to spend the afternoon making goodies with me. Here she is dipping pretzel rods! We dipped them in chocolate almond bark and then put sprinkles on some and drizzled white chocolate on others. So pretty!

Here she is, stirring one of our favorites: Popcorn, M&M's, peanuts with melted white almond bark. She came all prepared....with her own apron! I love it!

We also made candied nuts and oreo balls. Jury is still out on the oreo balls......Not sure if I like them or not but after an afternoon of sugar up to my eyeballs, it was hard to tell! Ha!

Thank you so much Cailee, love you bunches!
