A Baptism & A Football Game

Those two go hand in hand, right?  Well, they do now 🙂

One of my close friends and her husband welcomed Sienna Lorraine Hanson into the world in October!  You might remember her baby shower

First baby for both sides of the family!  As honorary family members, our family was just as excited for her to be part of our family!  Unfortunately Miss Sienna and her parents live in NY 😦  But over the holidays they came to visit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They decided it was the perfect time for Sienna to be baptized!  Being home and able to share in these moments make the cold MN winter completely worth it!

Getting to the football part of things…  Sienna was baptized at the Saturday evening worship service and then they decided to do a lunch the next day because the Packer vs. Viking game was happening!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Both mom and dad of Miss Sienna are big Packer fans, as well as majority of everyone in their families!

My husband, however, was the only Viking fan 😦   He felt a little out of place but I think winning the game made things easier 🙂  As the good wife I am, even though I don’t really watch football, I still support the hubby and wear my Vikings gear 🙂

Notice how excited Matt was to take a picture with Sienna? 🙂  Guys are so weird about babies…  He didn’t want to hold her (which he did eventually), and thought it was weird we were taking a picture with her. He didn’t want people to get the wrong idea that she was ours… 🙂  Oh husband!

Anyway, since I love themes so much, it was perfect time to make Viking and Packer themed goodies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Be hold Viking vs. Packer Oreo Balls:

The Vikings Oreo Balls are Dulce De Leche flavored, and the Packers are Mint Chocolate flavored!

Dulce De Leche Oreo Balls

1 pkg Golden Oreos

1 pkg Dulce De Leche flavored cream cheese

2 T. powdered sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

Mint Oreo Balls

1 pkg. Mint Oreos

1 row from a pkg. of regular Oreos (with the different fillings from the special oreos, the dough tends to be really soft and therefore it’s beneficial to add extra crumbs)

1-8 oz. pkg. light cream cheese

2 T. powdered sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

**if you don’t have access to Mint Oreos, use regular Oreos and then substitute 2 tsp. Mint extract for the vanilla

For directions: see a previous Oreo Ball recipe here, here or here 🙂  Sorry I didn’t feel like typing it all up again, when I could just add the links (which I might add, I’m pretty proud of myself for figuring that out 🙂 ).

When Miss Sienna was back in MN, my parents were lucky enough to be able to do a photo session with her!!!  (if you don’t remember the parentals have a photography business: Kynn Schulz Photography)

Isn’t she the cutest???? 🙂
