Is it a good thing that I have been too busy DOING to post? LOL So, let's go....
Day 12: choose a new family ornament
Yeah, that did not work out so well. We did not find ANYTHING we liked. Then we had a brilliant idea...we'll do a family "house" collection instead. Those, however, were hard to find, so we will be going out on Saturday to buy our first little collectable house. I will add a photo then. :)
Day 13: Make a nativity and a train
This was fun! I found two sites with some great demensional printables:
Printable Paper Train
Day 14: An early stocking stuffer
I have been done with stockings for a while, but just found two things that will in no way fit (and I forgot I bought last year), so guess what we gave them today? Collin got a Narnia character and Isabel got a Hello Kitty puzzle.
Day 15: Christmas in Canada
Yep. Canada. Now don't get me wrong, I like Canada, but man, their traditions are not that far off from ours. I did some reasearch and asked a few Canadian friends and came up with a not too scary menu.
Before dinner we pulled some Christmas crackers. We found them at Target and all loved them! Collin got a whoopie cushion and a car....Isabel got a mini flashlight and a tape measure....Billy got some mini screwdrivers...and I got...wait for it....nail clippers. (You may OHHH and AHHHH now.)
I could not find a different enough main course that everyone would eat, so we stuck with chicken pot pie, poutine (fries with mozzerella and beef gravy) and butter tart squares for dessert. I was the only one who like the poutine...but the butter tart squares. YUMMY! I was sad I had to share them.
