Merry Christmas!

I seem to have my seasons confused:

looks like visions of Great Pumpkins rather than Sugar Plums are dancing in my head!

What can I say…I was feeling orange today. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, right Lee?!

This morning we hopped in the car and sped down the 401 to visit two special little angels:

baby c: she made several attempts today to UNdecorate the tree!...

...and little e: all decked out in her princess cape and tutu skirt, all day!

Since Family Christmas was postponed from today until Monday, B and I volunteered to watch the girls while The Brother and SIL Ana went out and about for a few hours.

First up on the agenda: Gingerbread Cookie decorating!! I’ll let you in on a secret: Aunti says she is bringing down the cookie kit so that she can help little e with some imaginative Christmas decorating…really, Aunti is just looking for an excuse to play with icing and sprinkles herself! When Baby C went down for her naptime, we set up shop and got down to the task at hand:

8 cookies: 6 people and two pets - let's get started!

there go the kitty cat eyes!

focus and teamwork!

people to go with the g-bread house!

ok! enough with the pictures, already, aunti!

What a fun afternoon! After cookie decorating and Baby C’s short nap, we played Lego, read a Dr Seuss book, played with the Fisher-Price farm…but the activity that most enthralled both girls this aft was…

magic marker arts n crafts!

Seriously! Little E always enjoys colouring time, but today both girls C devoted at least 30 consecutive minutes to creating masterpieces!

little e executed a big gluing idea...something with making a present??!

We wrapped up with Hide n Go Seek, and a marching parade. What a wonderful afternoon!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas! Tomorrow is the 24th! I’ve got a day of work at the store, then B and I will go for our annual walk through Waterloo Park to see the Christmas Lights, then we will watch my favourite movie EVER!! (I was going to save this movie for Movie #40, but I’m just getting the vibe that it’s perfect for us to enjoy tomorrow eve).

      i got the kit at valumart (aka loblaws) – it was SO CUTE!! two “parents,” four “kids,” and a dog and a cat. 5 icings (2 green, 2 red, 1 black), sprinkles, candies all included. like $5.99. worth it to me to NOT bake! 🙂 not sure where you could get a cookie CUTTER, though??? have you looked at bulk barn? or michaels? they both carry WILTON brand which i am completely sold on! glad to hear there are more of us orange fans out there! i’d drape myself in orange every day, if i could! 🙂 tell jeff to get saucony kinvara running shoes in the bright orange. so sad, they were too wide for my feet…but they’re NEON ORANGE!! the boys would love to see daddy in those!!!

    Sweet pants, that’s one thing I’m missing a nice pair of orange pants… I guess there is always Christmas.
