Knowing we would be home all day, and that Don would be sleeping late because of a meeting, I decided we needed to do SOMETHING to keep the boys entertained. So first, I turned on Pandora and started some Christmas music and then I came up with a simple project.
What I came up with:
We used the leftover waffle cones from Kingston's birthday party. I melted some white almond bark and added some green food gel. Then I rolled the cones in the almond bark.
And then, of course, we had to take pictures with the finished products.
Then we set them on a platter and sprinkle our "snow." (Powdered sugar)
That is our one and only Christmas decoration this year. I love Christmas decorations. But I want to start fresh with all our decorations. I know I shouldn't hold off all the time, saying "we will wait until we get a new house." But I don't want to purchase items, only to be unable to use them in a future house. So for now, we have our Christmas tree forest. At least our cleanup will be easier than everyone else's.
P.S. I was able to do this with the boys because Evangeline has recently turned into an amazing sleeper. Going to bed around 9 and usually not waking up again until 10:30am-noon. Today she slept until 11:30!
After lunch, I surprised them with some hot chocolate.
Evangeline even joined in on the fun. And she loved it!
Now we're just relaxing and watching Christmas movies.
And now I will end with a super cute picture of our little miss, right after she woke up. Such a happy girl!
