chocolate filled wontons

we made these a few days ago, and let me say: they were so good!
it's not really a traditional christmas cookie, but we decided they were so delicious, they were one of our favorites, ever!
i got the recipe from everyday food magazine.
i decided it looked interesting & different, so we went to the grocery store & got the wonton wrappers.
here's the recipe: chocolate filled wontons

so, i was very satisfied with these, but instead of vegetable oil, i used coconut oil,
which is much more healthy.

Christmas totally snuck up on me this year.

i have to be honest: monday is usually not my most favorite day.
i mean, you've just had an amazing {and possibly very snowy} weekend & bam!
back to reality.
{i got this headband a while ago. & i love that it looks like a hat, but is still a headband. you can sorta see it. love it.}

but, this monday is the last monday before christmas break!

right now, i love listeningto owl city.
it makes me so happy each time i listen.
favorites: cave in, dental care, hello seattle remixxxx, saltwater room. okay, i love them all!

lace & i.
we call it burrito style! she get's really freaked out a lot. so swaddling her calms her down.

this is a very random post. hey, everyone's gotta have one once in a while, right?
yeah. :]

lacey was really upset that she couldn't go outside.

she spent a lot of the day in the laundry room drying off from her morning outside. she was covered on small snowballs. i had to run warm water on her {which turned into a bath} to get all the snow off!

it's blizzard conditions here, people.
we're quite literally snowed in.
i waded through the snow (that was up to my
thighs in some places) to try to get to the mailbox.
only to find that our mailbox fell off the stand. {plow truck?}
so, i floundered back to the house.
things are so snowy, that they've closed a major highway by us. & our church cancelled all it's services.
so, today we spent the day wrapping presents and hanging out with lacey. who went bonkers about every 15 minutes. squirrels are her enemies. they hang out around our deck.
but, since the drifts were/are about 10 times as tall as her, we couldn't let her out.
i think we'll be snowed in tomorrow too. {we can't use our plow since my dad is gone}

i'm praying my daddy & brother get home safe!

thenn later on sat, we went to the wild woods of wisconsin to find our perfect charlie brown tree.
& then on sunday my gram came over for a birthday breakfast brunch!
we had lots of good food & laughs.
& then we decorate the tree.
so. so much for a quiet weekend. haha like i would want one anyways. :]
