Saturday evening we spent a few minutes making a birthday cake for Jesus.
Mylea has gotten in to the whole baking thing and wanted to do it without any help.
After mixing all of the ingredients, Mylea did a quick quality control check.
When the cake had finally cooled, My couldn't wait to decorate it. She wanted the cake to say "Happy Birthday Jesus. Welcome Home For Christmas". I asked her how to spell all of that and her response was "BJGDK".
Mylea picked out some present and ornament shaped sugar candies to put on top of the cake.
A warning to all who eat this cake tomorrow.....I guess Mylea thought the sugar candies were like stamps. She licked the back of every one of them before placing them in the icing. I guess licking them helped the candy stick to the cake??????
Friday night we drove up to West Fork to see Ms. Jassa crowned "Color's Day" (aka Homecoming) Queen. Mylea couldn't wait to see Ms. Jassa in her princess dress. Mylea wanted to wear her own princess dress-up clothes to the game, but I convinced her that it would be way to cold.
When we arrived at the gym, Ms. Sherry (Jassa's grandmother) took Mylea to the girls locker room so Mylea could get a peek at all the princess dresses. A few minutes later, Ms. Sherry returned and said that Mylea wanted to stay with all the princess'. A few minutes before the ceremony began, Mylea and Ms. Kelly (Jassa's mom) returned to their seats. Mylea made sure to point out where Landen and I were sitting but then continued to walk right passed up and to Ms. Kelly's seat.
Mylea enjoyed the attention from Ms. Kelly!!!

Someone was determined to get her picture with the queen!
Congratulations Ms. Jassa! You looked beautiful! Mylea now wants a dress just like yours!
Today was moving day! In the midst of all the craziness, Buddy the Elf somehow made his way to the new house. While carrying boxes in and moving things from one house to the other, the doorbell rang and there was Buddy. Mylea was excited to see that Buddy knew where to come and that he brought a housewarming gift!
When Landen got home from work, we headed upstairs to cook some popcorn and we watched "Home Alone". You can guess who joined us for popcorn and a movie.....Stitch!!
Last Sunday night, our children's choir presented the musical "Christ-myth Busters". This has been our most challenging musical since we have attended Rye Hill. Mylea got to be an angel, a shepherd hanging out on the beach, and she also sang "O Come Let Us Adore Him" with the preschool choir.
Smith Chevrolet held a Toys For Tots Christmas Party for its employees so we headed to Landen's work for our Christmas activity. On our way, we stopped and let Mylea pick out a boy and girl toy to donate.
When we arrived at Smith, Mylea picked out a table for us and began working on her gingerbread house.
We were served pizza and cupcakes for dinner. Mylea was excited to have popcorn and hug juice drinks. While we ate, a surprise visitor made a special appearance.
I thought that My might be excited to see Santa since she sat in his lap just a few nights earlier....well, this is where she stayed......
After we convinced her to come out from under the table, Mylea still didn't want Santa to come any where near her.
Before we left to head home, Mylea was excited to see a nutcracker painted on the window.
Landen and I have been married since 2002. We have two daughters who are gifts from God. Leightyn was born in 2005 and went to sing and dance with Jesus on August 7, 2010. Mylea was born in 2007 and is my rainbow on a rainy day. This is our journey of raising our girls to love God with all their heart.
