brrr...!

Baby, it's cold outside! When temps get in the single digits, it's the perfect time to 1) truly appreciate a warm home and 2) cuddle with the ones you love. 

During the week, we've been doing plenty of crockpot meals, DVR watching in the basement, and flannel pj-wearing. I love this weather around the holidays. Call me crazy, but i wouldn't trade the four seasons for anything. 

This weekend we were able get in to the Christmas spirit with decorating the house and going on our annual double-date to the Nutcracker with the Wagners. On Sunday the Richter clan met at the outlet malls to do some Christmas shopping. It was a beautiful day, walking around the mall with the snow falling. 

We have a new family member in the house, Molly the elf. Avery likes Molly {or 'monny' as she pronounces it} except she is very concerned as to why Molly's hands are sewn together. Yesterday Avery was running too fast with Molly and the elf's plastic head bonked Avery in the face. Avery ran over to me crying and said, "Ouch, Molly hurt me!" Silly elf. 

Waking Avery up in the mornings are becoming more and more difficult. She is always so cozy in her bed.

And once she is up, she likes to hang out :)

Making chocolate chip pancakes with Daddy.

Helping to set up the Christmas tree.

Greg putting the star on the tree is tradition.

Avery's 'poop' corner...

Nice and cozy at the mall.

Poppy & Sissy at the mall, too.

Cookies and TV time.

New winter coat!
Stay warm, my friends!
