Christmas Eve & Day and Boxing Day were fantabulous. All good. No bad.
I have more to write with pics, but may very well take me till next year to get that organized.
(that was a joke)
A combination of incongruous things, A miscellaneous anthology or collection, A mixture of dried flower petals and spices used to scent the air, You'll get it all here, but it isn't gonna smell pretty
Then today we will make these reindeer sammiches that I did last year:They are a huge hit...I used cherry tomatoes, grapes and stuck the mini-pretzels in between the slices of bread for accessorizing. You could also used raisins for eyes and create antlers from cheese sticks or carrots or whatever.
Oh, and for dessert you can make snowmen with marshmallows...piling three high, sticking them together with jam or peanut butter or icing, anything, then accessorize with raisins or candies for face and buttons, use gumdrops or licorice, toothpicks...get creative and have fun!!I have never taken pics of ours, mainly cause even though the kiddies LOVE doing it, they don't even look remotely as good as these ones I found doing a simple Google image search. I snagged this photo from Candy USA.
Now letters to Santa. In Canada, when the kids write and send a letter to Santa, they WILL receive a reply in the mail! It is wonderful! And no worries, in our house with twin boys, both years in a row, each boy rec'd a different (stock) letter which thrilled them to bits. We DID send individual letters though, not two in one envelope. I don't know if anywhere offers this in the USA, but in Canada send your letters to:
And for those with more tech-savvy children, they can also email Santa
This is a great program, it encourages the kids to not only write, but an actual letter and the whole mailing process. It may be the first time your child really tries to write his own name, who knows? More information available here.
Hey....I'll show you mine if you show me yours....
