December activities

Making sugar cookies and decorating them at Raelynn's house was another successful event. Ma Ingalls, aka Dawn Moses is a woman who is incredible. She is a great friend and so resourceful! The kids were so happy to be making cookies for Santa and a few to eat before hand. We all sat around and shared another year of memories. We are a blessed group of people to have friends such as these.

This was one of the best crafts of the season. We made salt dough ornaments (thanks Xandra). Once we painted them they were so "kidified", colorful and so pretty. It was even more fun to share it with Emma and Maddie.

Kay Kay helped build one the the cutest gingerbread houses. We loved the sprinkle walkway. With our warm weather, some little bitty ants thought it was their new home. NOT! So, it already has gone on to decorate the city dump. But it sure was fun.

I'm glad you decided to make the ornaments! Love the pictures of all the decorating. We so totally need to live closer to one another. Sigh.
