No, it's definitely not snowing here in the south. But there are a lot of snowflakes in my house!
Every year my parents get our kids a silver snowflake ornament with their name and the year engraved on it. I have a mini tree that I put up in our entryway that I've been decorating with these snowflakes for years. Given that my kids are 7, 6, and 3, we have quite a collection.
I think I'm going to need a bigger tree!
Christmas vacation has officially started for my kids - we did the school parties today and they are all hopped up on candy canes. I'm thinking we need to do some serious Christmas crafting to
pass the time create memories this week.
And Mr. Helpful pointed out our shortage of Christmas cookies. We've all been so sick, no one wanted to bake. Now he has the flu so the kids and I will step up to the plate. And fill it with cookies. (Wow. That was cheesy.) Coming soon: cookie-making pics, and hopefully some kid-friendly craftiness too!
