snow and the gingerbread house

We were so excited to finally get some snow! I think we got at least three inches here and I was so excited about it, the girls and I put on our snow gear and headed out to play in it at 8:00 that night.

Mamie was more excited about her pockets than the snow.

Lilly wore her cousin Dylan's old snowsuit and Mamie had Lilly's old one. I love hand-me-downs :)

The Saturday after the snow, Sassy took Lilly to make a gingerbread house. Aunt Kim and Hollis also went, so I only have her pictures. Anyway, we didn't really know it was going to be such an elaborate family affair. Next year I am definitely planning on going. Lilly had a wonderful time and got to spend the night with Sassy all by herself the night before. Of course, no overnight trip to Sassy's is complete without a trip to Cool Springs, which Lilly and Mamie both refer to as "Sassy's mall" since she always takes them there.

When I got to Sassy's house to pick her up, Lilly told me, "Mom, I ate a bunch of candy. I mean a BUNCH of candy." I think it was one on the house, two in the mouth...
