Weekend Update. And yes, I realize this is way to many pictures for one post.

Where did the weekend go? It flew by for us! Here are a few things we did this weekend.

On the very rainy Friday, and because of complete boredom, Adyson and I decided to make these yummy treats. (Amy has been telling me how good they are for weeks.) She was right. Delicious and totally simple.
Note: Mine didn't turn out quite this pretty. Next time I'm going to add some white chocolate or sugar on top so they look more like this.

Crush one package of oreo cookies. Mix with an 8 oz. package of cream cheese, and some vanilla extract. (I just added some, I didn't measure.) Mix in your mixer and it should be quite thick, and there wont be any white from the cream cheese, then roll into balls and put on wax paper. Stick them in the fridge for about an hour, just so they will stay in form. Next dip in dipping chocolate or almond bark. Keep them in the fridge in an airtight container. They are sinfully tasty. Travis and I both really like them when they are cold the best.

We also did a little of this. Yes folks, I sort of, kind of... started the potty training. I say sort of because I am not into it like I was with Adyson. I'll get there, and she will too. She sure looks cute while doing it though, doesn't she?
We also went to see Kung-fu Panda. (It was a hit.) Here's a snapshot of the girls trying to decide what treat to smuggle into the theater. Yes folks. the cheap parents don't buy $5 candy bars. They ended up with Rolo's, you know, the messiest treat ever.
Sunday we made our way to Tree town to celebrate Miss Rhaegen's Birthday. (She's a very proud 6 year old now). Very proud. The girls enjoyed the cats, the 4-wheeler, and singing to the Birthday girl. But mostly they enjoyed the fact that we brought the birthday girl home with us for a sleepover! My girls were pretty stoked about this and they informed me last night that we will do it again when Rhaegen turns 7.
Here is Rhaegen right before blowing out the candles on her Hello Kitty cake that Grandma made. It was super cute, and I forgot to take a pic. Shocker, since I took oh a million pictures. So enjoy. A tutorial on how to have a proper slumber party. (You know, in case you forgot.)

You must have a late night snack in your Jammie's. Chicken noodle soup was the snack of choice.
Watch some 'late night' TV. Wizards of Waverly place was their choice. They are 4 and 6 you know.You must sleep on the floor with blankets and pillows everywhere. Doesn't Adyson look like she is in pure heaven?The next day you have to eat out in class. Ham and cheese sandwiches from The Grist Mill. And don't feel guilty about those calories in the Cinnamon Cookie eaten afterwards. :)You have to go 'drag main' and go shopping of course. I got plenty of compliments on how pretty my 3 squished girls were at the grocery store. They do look like they could be sisters, don't they?Lastly, you really need to watch a chick flick. Rhaegen chose Shrek the 3rd. So girly!! They had so much fun playing together! How lucky my girls are to have such great cousins. Happy Birthday cute Rhaegen! We ALL love you!

I'm glad to see you are sorta potty training Sienna. I am also sorta potty training Polly, but I'm thinking about going full tilt-no more diapers. This cheap mom is tired of buying them.

Michelle said...

Hay Thanks for the sleep over. Rheagen LOVED it. I hope they get to do it again sometime.
Rheagens birthday was great, thanks for coming despite the kitties. :(

What a fun time it looks like your weekend was. What child wouldn't want a awesome mother and aunt to make a sleepover so much fun. They are very lucky!

Hanne and Fam said...

What a fun weekend! Sleepovers are so much fun. Lexi is always wanting to have them with her cousins too. Good luck with the potty training!

Matt & Jill said...

Wow. I might have to make those treats. They look so yummy! Sleepover, how fun! Allie hasn't done that yet. Good luck with potty training, I'm not even close to start with Dallin. But then again he's not 2 yet either. Fun. Fun.

The Wolfley Family said...

"food porn" -- I'm in agreement there. I seriously need chocolate now! The best part is Ady's sweet happy face at her sleepover! You have the cutest girls!

nellelund said...

It's been awhile since I've blogged, so I just got caught up on your last few weeks. I truly enjoy all your entries! I love how much you love your girls and how you remind everyone what life is all about by cherishing all the small things. About the freakin cancer- you are certainly entitled to your "days", but I think you and Travis are great examples of how to live life to the fullest. Your blog shows it. Thanks for sharing it!!! Oh, and thanks for the stroller too :)
