Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments is brought to you by Mrs4444!

Mommy's Idea

We had a snow day yesterday. Daycare announced a 2-hour delay (of course, after I had already gotten up at 5:15 and was ready for the day), then an hour later my offices announced that they were closed for the day. By the end of the day it looked like a bomb had gone off in the living room and I was absolutely exhausted. I wonder if this is how my parents felt after snow days?

I introduced Charlie to Rudolph. The original Rudolph, with Herbie the Dentist and Cornelius. He's become absolutely obsessed with it and asks to watch it pretty much every night. I never realized how long that movie is. An HOUR! That's a long movie. I also never realized just how mean those reindeer were, and how annoying the movie was. I almost feel guilty for how many times I made my parents watch it with us.

You know what other kids christmas movie is super sad? Frosty the Snowman. I had flashbacks to crying on the couch when Frosty took the little girl into the greenhouse to save her - you just knew that he wasn't going to make it out alive.

Charlie's final christmas present is on it's way! My friend up in the cold north of Ohio made him a toddler-friendly light saber, complete with glow-in-the-dark yarn.

I continued my holiday baking last night with Peppermint Fudge. I took a recipe from a favorite cooking blog - Beantown Baker - and changed it up a little bit to mix my two favorite flavors together.

Pictures and recipe adaptation coming soon!

Tomorrow my baking continues with a cookie-baking mini party with one of my favorite friends, who I haven't seen in way too long.

I strained my quad muscles on Wednesday and I'm placing 100% of the blame on my not-so-high heels. I spend way too much time in them wandering a random college campus while I was there for career day.

Can you believe I was invited to speak at career day? It's one of those moments when you realize that people expect you to act like a responsible adult.

Have a lovely weekend :)


  1. I happen to love Rudolph. Watching it kicks off the holiday season for me. I probably watch it at least 5 times a year. And Frosty and Santa Claus is Coming To Town too.

  2. I always found Rudolph (the version you blogged about) to be quite weird and scary. It always freaked me out and still does. Those weird claymation characters give me the chills.

  3. My boys NEED light sabers like that. Seriously. Does your friend sell them?!

  4. Rudolph and Frosty are classics. Despite my age, I watch them every year. I refuse to grow up.

  5. I introduced my daughter to Rudolph this year, too. She loves it and I ride my stationary bike while she watches it.

  6. that's so funny......Justin's two favorite shows this year are Rudolph and Frosty. Justin is very, very worried about Frosty and talks about him EVERY DAY. Very sad.

    I grew up on those claymation shows and I want my kids to love them as much as I did. I feel 9 years old again when I'm watching them......the only thing missing is stringing popcorn to hang on the tree while we're watching. :)

  7. glow-in-the-dark yarn? I never knew. Not that I knit and not that's anything wrong with male knitters, I just don't know any. Very nice light saber.

  8. i know what you mean about rudolph and i agree that frosty makes me cry too!! but we still watch them with our kids. it is great for lessons and discussion with them.

    i love the light saber, that is great!!

  9. Even now, I sometimes think to myself, "Wow. I guess I'm a real grownup." It's crazy.

    I loved those movies so much and still do! Annoying? Are you kidding me?!

    LOVE the light saber--That is awesome!!!

    Made the Nutella cookies and am working on a post. Hope you're having a relaxing weekend :)
