We've been chillin'...cookin'...playin'

Hi everyone!
We've had a somewhat laid back week this week.
Our small group Christmas party for church was last night and I made a couple of Pinterest inspired appetizers...they were good.

Mini pigs in a blanket, shaped into a wreath with red bell pepper bow...and I made a cranberry BBQ dipping sauce...YUM

This would be a cookie brownie with cookies n' cream candy bars and chocolate chips among other amazing ingredients.

We had a lot of fun and we were sooo tired and ready for bed we went to sleep.  I was awakened by a little person saying, "Mommy, I lay down wif you?"
This has never happened before but I was so tired, I just grabbed him up and laid him in the bed with us...he fell fast asleep.  
Then, about 7am, I was awakened again by a foot in my side...someone decided to take up the whole bed and kick the rest of us out.  It was cute, as long as it doesn't become an every night thing!

Then, the little zombie was surprised with his very own play nativity.  I thought about making our own but honestly, Caleb's too little to really help me make it and I would rather just buy this plastic one so that we can keep it for years and years...he was slightly excited.
He opened it and said, "Baby Jesus!"
Very excited that somehow, he already knows about baby Jesus in the manger.  I was waiting until I bought this nativity and I also bought a book to explain to him about Jesus and Christmas but he already has a head start...that little smarty pants.
Just goes to show they watch and listen all the time, even when you don't think they are!
