This week has been busy…
Dec 16: Chocolate Pretzels for Neighbors
We decorated pretzel rods with chocolate using holiday themed molds.
Dec 17: Delivered Gifts to Neighbors
I wrapped up the pretzel rods and the kids and I distributed them to our closest neighbors [we don’t have many because we live in the woods].
Dec 18: Drive to see holiday light displays
I took the kids to see two residential light shows in our area.
Some of these people really go all out!
Dec 19: Puffy Paint snowmen
I mixed puffy paint using glue and shaving cream. The kids painted snowmen.
They turned out cute.
Theo’s is more like a melted snowman, which I think is awesome.
We also made snowmen cards for Eva’s preschool teachers. [I painted the snowmen and Evangeline added the accessories.]
Dec 20: Evangeline’s preschool holiday program
The class had prepared a short program with some holiday songs and rhymes. Evangeline did great, and any fears about her getting stage fright are long gone.
She gave us a gift that she has made in class and she and Brett did a craft together while I fed crackers and cheese to Theo and Josephine.
She also gave her gifts to her teachers.
I’m glad we were all able to attend the event. It’s only preschool – but it’s so special to Evangeline. And it was so darn cute!
Dec 21: Gingerbread houses with Auntie Paula
This year, all the cousins [who are local] got together to decorate gingerbread houses with Auntie Paula.
It was messy. It was chaotic. A LOT of candy was consumed, but a surprising amount also made it onto the houses.
This annual tradition is one of my favorites! Our Auntie Paula is just the greatest!
