it is official. 
fudge season has begun.
B made his first batch last night. 
and if you haven’t had some of his mom’s famous fudge, 
you are really missing out. 
if you’re in the neighborhood, 
you should swing on by for a glass of cold milk and a couple pieces. 
and yes, you must have milk with the fudge. 
it’s completely necessary. 

i don’t know if you know this, 
but i’m famous for making the fudge, too. 
so famous that the one time i tried making it, 
i burned the sugar and the house smelled so badly 
that we had to go out to dinner
even though we were planning on eating in. 
yep, that’s surely the fame i was hoping for. 
i now am B’s assistant. 
he’s so good at making it, 
why do i need to try?
that’s right, i don’t. 

we had a slow start to the morning yesterday.
B took D to school, so there wasn’t a big push to get the kids ready to leave the house. 
after i finally got K to agree to get dressed, 
i had to bribe her to let me do her hair. 


she said that she wanted to wear her hair “just like this.”

yeah, that wasn’t cool with me. 
so i let her listen to any music she wanted if she let me do her hair. 


and this, this is what she looked like afterwards.



don’t you just want to eat her up?



i do. 



D just got this book from this sweet girl and has been absolutely enthralled by it. 
while the two littles were sleeping, we snuggled on the couch together
and read until i was just about to fall asleep.
you see, when i stop moving, 
my body thinks it’s napping time.



so instead of a nap, we made a  snowflake for each member of the family. 
actually, he picked the designs out, i cut them and he unfolded them. 



and this morning, 
B suggested we teach L more signs.
so while i was getting ready, he showed him a few essential signs:

vcr
triangle and
photosynthesis

yep, those will definitely come in handy on a daily basis. 
definitely.

    I.love.fudge. Yet, I don't make it. So normally, I have to wait until my mom arrives for Cmas to enjoy the heavenly chocolate. You are a lucky woman. Here's to hoping for a playdate at your house soon. :o)
