We haven't had a lot of snow (yet?) this winter, so if it isn't going to snow outside, I decided to make it snow inside our lovely little Glanworth library. I put out coffee filters and cupcake liners (the quick and easy way to get circles!) and scissors, and let the kids do the rest.
Dads were allowed to help too.
They look so pretty hanging from the ceiling, don't they?
Today, the Monday after New Year's Day, and the day when schools are back in session, is traditionally the official end of the holiday season. I thought it was high time I sent out an updated blog entry to show a few holiday highlights.
Emily and Alex helped Jeff put lights on our shed and on a little blue spruce.
Carly, Klaus, Emily and Alex got totally engrossed in decorating gingerbread cookies that Carly baked and brought on Christmas Eve day.
I love how they turned out, and they tasted as good as they looked!
All is calm, all is bright...
The Christmas brunch table all set and ready.
A few favourite gifts:
On Boxing Day, we all got together at the church hall for a long, lovely dinner!
The grandkids provided comical (and very sweet!) entertainment.
After all the festivities, we really needed a good,vigorous hike. It felt great to get out into the cold!
It was another magical family Christmastime and, once again, I'm filled with gratitude.
