the girl child had a heck of a weekend

hot cocoa mix

Friday night she and Brian went to the Daddy Daughter Dance. This child is a dancin' fool! She tried on all the fancy dresses, but ended up going with the same one she wore last year. (It still fits and is pink and twirly and sparkly, so there you go.) And then Sunday was her birthday party- we took a few of her friends ice skating and out for sundaes. She had a great time! We made this hot cocoa mix for party favors. Thank goodness there was extra. It snowed! Lest you think the boy was neglected, he and I had a date to Lulu's Noodles Friday night, he went out for pancakes with Papa Saturday morning, went to a war movie with Papa in the afternoon, and headed to a college basketball game Saturday night. And of course he got to skate too, but chose a root beer float over the sundae. (A boy after my heart.)
