It's Almost Time!

We have been loving the past few days of holiday fun! Some of the things that have been keeping us busy:

Hosting a cookie decorating playgroup for the younger kiddos

Making snowflakes - since we most likely won't see any real ones for the holiday!

Hosting hot chocolate and crafts for the older kiddos

Lighting our menorah and learning about Hanukah and also reading books to prep for Kwanza - I can't express how awesome it is that the girls have brought about these activities on their own! AWESOME!!!

Making candy cane play dough and gingerbread play dough - I was done baking but the girls wanted to keep going, so they have been "baking" up a storm!

Made cinnamon and applesauce ornaments

Watched some Christmas movies

Had Grandma and Grandpa arrive - which means today there will be a little baking project for real for the girls! Not too much though since Grandma baked 8 different kinds of goodies and brought them with her :)

Basically we are on to nothing but holiday fun and good times with our family after enjoying a few days of fun with good friends . . .

I can't wait until Stella gets older and we do these things! I also love that the girls brought up Jewish and African holidays. So cool!
