Christmas Fun

Christmas has been so much this year!  We have done lots of activities and made lots of stuff. Sophie Clare has really enjoyed all that comes with the Christmas season.

Last night we were riding around looking at Christmas lights and had the biggest surprise. There is a house that has tons of lights and we will just go and sit to look. Last night when we pulled up, you will never believe who was in the drive way??
It was the sweetest, considering how much Sophie Clare is into Santa.  He was so sweet!

Now back to what we have been making.
The girls were here this past Saturday and I knew they would get into making the Sugar Cone Christmas Trees. Plus I knew Sophie Clare would have more fun making them with the girls.

They had tons of fun making them and Sophie Clare had tons of fun eating the icing.  You would have thought she was a baby considering how much she wiped on her face. ;-) She is a mess!

Sophie Clare's is in the back with all the icing licked off. As soon as she put it on, she was licking it off.

We also made salt dough ornaments and Sophie Clare painted them.
 It was a lot of fun!
Here is the recipe

1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup plain flour
1/4 cup water

This would be fun to to anytime of year.
 They just take a while to dry but you can put them in the oven for a faster dry!

We also made finger print Christmas lights, reindeer ornaments and have been coloring lots of Christmas pages.

We made a cute little donut snowman and it was super easy. We used jelly beans for the nose and buttons. The fruit roll up made the perfect scarf.

I can not believe that Christmas is right around the corner. Really, it is Tuesday! Where did the month of  December go??
