Christmas is long gone. I know people are ready to be in 2014 but here is my lazy last-minute recap.
Salt dough ornaments!
We usually decorate a couple of trees. Spreading Christmas cheer! Although I’ll say decorating Christmas trees isn’t my favorite (sure, call me a scrooge) so I leave it to the kids until I have to decorate ours at home, plus the whole rest of the house!
We decorated with big lights and small lights this year making for a real extravaganzaahh.
We worked on a little hand-painted present.
E’s preschool has an amazing tradition of blowing snow on the playground on a day in December. This is the magic I’m talking about!
The guys had to stick around to blow fresh snow for the pm class so they watched the little excited kids play. This is what I saw when I pulled up. I thought it was cute.
E wanted to roll up huge snowballs to make a snowman. In order to leave some snow for the other children this is what we ended up with.
This was E’s first hot cocoa. Although she’s “starting to like chocolate” she never really has so I had never made it for her. Not to mention the nervousness of serving a hot beverage to a kiddo….She really liked it.
E’s ballet class wrapped up for the semester with discussion of the Nutcracker. She loved the story and I really wanted to take her to the real ballet but we ran out of time before we left for Dallas. Next year for sure.
We wrote a couple of letters to Santa because E was too nervous to talk to him in person. One of the letters went into this mailbox and I kept the other (after promising to mail it) because I didn’t want to never see it again!
Look at this crazy Mrs. Claus stone-face killah. Way to ruin the picture, lady. Really creepy. When this picture is blown up really big on our desktop her eyes practically burn into my soul like Viggo from Ghostbusters 2. I realize that’s not the first reference to that movie on my blog. What can I say?
Look at this adorable toy train that my good friend has running around the middle of her tree!? Charming!!
Fancily decorated Christmas cookies ready for a party!
Look at the party favor basket from my Aunt’s Christmas Eve party! Fancy liquors and my grandmother’s priceless artwork. So amazing.
Cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning!
That’s about it! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
