Abby wanted a Jessie Doll from Toy Story 2 for Christmas. I had already bought all of the girls Christmas gifts so she did not get one. She still wanted it after Christmas so I told her she could save her Christmas money and buy one after Christmas. We found one Monday on the Disney Store's website. We took a little trip to the mall to see if they had a Jessie doll. They did not have one so we came home and ordered Jessie.
Well Jessie came today. When we got home from school Abby went running to see if UPS had brought her box. They had not, so we went inside for a snack. As they were finishing up their snack Abby saw the UPS truck stop at our house. I opened the front door as the UPS guy was walking up the sidewalk. Abby could not stand, she was jumping up and down.
Allie chose to purchase a smaller Jessie doll and her horse, Bullseye with her money on Monday while we were at the Disney Store. She has been sleeping with them since then.
Last Saturday the girls and I made Minnie Mouse sugar cookies. I found a set of Minnie and Mickey shaped cookie cutters on clearance at Target so I thought this would be a great little project for us to do.
Here is Abby & Allie rolling out the cookie dough
They thought it was fun to eat cookie dough...feed each other cookie dough
I started this Fantasy Football season off great I had 9 wins in a row, then I lost 5 in a row. I went from 1st to 4th in about 4 weeks. I finished the playoffs in 3rd which is MUCH better than last years next to last place.
Sunday afternoon we had a prayer service at our new building to pray for what we will been done at our new building. Then we were able to write scripture on the concert in the main entrance/common area, we want to build our building on God's Word.
The girls wrote their name on the floor as well. My scripture was Proverbs 16:3 and Raymond's was Romans 8:38.
It is exciting to know this is were our girls will grow up and go through the Children's Ministry and then move into the Youth Group and graduate high school and go off to college. I pray the friends they make at church will be the best friends they have and they will have those friends for life.
This year on New Year's Eve we went over to the Spellings' home for dinner and games. This is the first year we have gone somewhere for New Year's Eve since the girls were born. That sounds kinds sad... Anyway, the girls had fun with their friends.
