Today we will have a little tour of our life in our house during Christmas vacation. I cleaned this table off just for this picture, so I hope you fully enjoy it.
I like making these sugar scenes each year, but as I look at this picture I realize it looks like one of the dwarves is attacking the other with a shovel. Merry Christmas!
This year we made it all the way to December 22 before the advent calendar was stripped of the delicious jelly wreaths. I think last year they were all gone by the 16th - could it be that my children are learning self-control?
I love how my 8 year old little boy wraps with binder paper. For some reason that just really warms my heart. Also, the 6 year old has been wrapping all kinds of books from our family bookshelves and who knows what else. She reminds me a lot of Aunt Edna from Christmas Vacation. I'm wondering if on Christmas morning we might find the dead, wrapped carcass of our neighbor's guinea pig.
This is the kind of thing that happens around here when the kids are not entertained by their school teachers at school: animal torture. Poor Calvin. So humiliating. Those are ballerina skirts. And a tiara (which you can't see from this angle).
Graham cracker frosting houses. It doesn't really get any fancier than that around here.
Time to make treats for friends and neighbors... these apple hand pies were fun to make. My leg went numb while I was making them. Who am I kidding, my leg is numb all the time now (final weeks of pregnancy fun).
Have a wonderful holiday! Stay safe and warm!
