A Little Christmas Cheer

It's not all about beekeeping and chickens and cooking around here.  Sometimes we actually break for a little fun.  Here's David and Christian making a santa hat at our local library for their Mrs Claus Christmas program.  I think David had a lot of fun making this hat. :-)

Here's Christian thinking about giving Mrs Claus a chance.  Santa is scary to him --in fact any big cartoon-ish person in a suit is.  And is to most little kids too (why do we do that to them?) So we thought maybe Mrs Claus wouldn't be too scary.  But he still wasn't exactly buying.  The library brings in Mrs Claus and gives the kids a little gift.  It is a very nice community activity for them.

The last activity that Christian and I did was to put icing on the gingerbread man and then he added on m & m eyes and buttons.  He chomped off his head first and then ran off to play with the train.

We had a wonderful snow fall that day.  About 5 or 6 inches fell and the boys had a ball going outside and playing in the snow.

The rest of us watched them play in the snow through the window in the comfort of the living room.  We're no dummies!

I hope you and yours will have a joyous and happy holiday season.  It sometimes gets hectic trying to get everything done, and everyone seen, but take some time and remember what the season is all about. And love the people around you.  Count your blessings.  Be in good health and cheer.
