Snow Day

Today was a snow day. Rabu got to stay home from school and his basketball game was cancelled so it was family time all day long!! Lexi has been talking about building a snowman since it snowed last time so she could not wait to get out there and build one. We bundled up and went out to do just that. Here are some of the pics from our day.

They made a really big snow ball

Then Lexi threw it at Daddy!

Then to build the snowman.

I could not get a picture of the finished product because as soon as we were done she kicked it over and starting stomping on it in absolute delight!

Poor Snowman

and she kept stomping and stomping!

Dreamy Enchiladas

Disclaimer: I have not met many enchiladas that i didn't like, so my opinion could be a bit bias.
I made these Chicken Enchiladas from Gina's Skinny taste blog, and oh my goodness!! They are so good. I was literally in Mexican food heaven! The chicken was so moist and flavorful. One of my complaints with chicken enchiladas is that the chicken tends to be dry. That is definitely not the case with these!! I seriously could write a book on how good these are! So since I do not have the time nor do I want my first book to be about chicken enchiladas, you will just have to try them for yourself!

Next time I will take it easy on the chipotle peppers because they were too spicy for the girls to enjoy, but man Rabu and I will be fighting over the leftovers today. Really easy since I did as she suggested and did crock pot chicken on Monday so my shredded chicken and homemade chicken broth were already done and ready!

Oh and I would like to give a shout out to my friend Becca, she kept telling me how awesome Aldi is and I finally went... why did I doubt her! What a great way to save on the grocery budget! Thanks Becca!!

Let's Sing, Let's Dance

Big girl Lexi Lou has been taking dance lessons at her school this year and is loving it. She will ask at least twice a week, " do I have dance class today". She loves showing us her dances that she has learned. At the end of the semester the parents were allowed to come and watch a lesson. So Sadie and I went and saw Lexi dance, here are a few pics.

Lexi loves showing off her new baby sister

Little miss priss

This year Lexi also was old enough to be in our church christmas program. She and her class sang Jingle bells. Lexi did a good job considering that 5 min before she told her teacher she was not going to do it! Ha ha... she looks like such a big girl.

Lexi's shirt was done by my friend Terra check out her website she has such cute stuff
