School was done for the 'year' at 1:00 yesterday. I scooted out the door not much after 1:00, after saying good-bye and Merry Christmas to some wonderful co-workers. Then it was time for Christmas to get into FULL swing in our home. Sometimes I just need to get past one big project before I can fully move into another. School was done, and I could move on.
I had lots on the agenda for yesterday. I had laundry to fold, a house to clean, and some fun, fun projects that I wanted to do with the kids....We were excited!
|I think we had about 8 ingredients that went into our Food. All things that are safe and good for animals. You can use pretty much whatever you have in your kitchen at the time. Magic Flying Feed was flour.|
|There are these cute little tags that go along with it. You fold them in half, and on the back is a cute little poem that tells you what to do. If you are interested in the tags- let me know, and I can send them to you!|
|This is the back of the tag. Works well to fold over a bag and staple, or for us, we just punched a hole, put string through it, and tied it around the tops of our jars.|
|Adi took her job seriously, and was dressed appropriately for the occasion!- No, I did not plan that:)|
|Eliott was very sure to read the directions and count out exactly what the 'recipe' said.|
|Our Rooftop Parking Pasta was crushed up Ramen Noodles. The Cheerios in the jar are labeled Circling the Earth. The Oat and Altitude Meal in the background is dry oatmeal.|
|We also had Reindeer Breath Freshener- (cinnamon), and Santa's Sparkle- (glitter). The glitter is what Santa sees from up in the sky. This is how he knows where to stop.|
|It was so nice to be home with the kids, and looking forward to a long break with them. We had so much fun together. I love these moments!|
|Sleigh Ride Sweetener was sugar.|
Next up: Ornaments.
|A lovely lady at work brought me in some old church music Hymnals. I was super excited, because they were even a little yellowed. This is exactly the look I was going for! I shredded them up, and we put the shreds in each of the ornaments.|
|The kids had fun helping with this, even though it was a little tedious.|
|Eli was proud of his finished product!|
|We also put a couple pinches of snow glitter, just to give them a little sparkle. I learned it was best to not fill them too full....I liked the look a little better when we didn't put as much 'stuffing' in.|
