Will has really been a BIG help in the kitchen lately. He can chop, slice, kead, roll, stir, and lick the bowl without leaving a drop...except for his face! He is growing way too fast. Next Tuesday we are having a lot of my mommy friends and their kidos over to have a holiday party.
There will be about 35 people so Will was helping me get things together. The theme will be All Aboard the Polar Express. I will read the story to the children and afterwards make crafts - jingle bell and beaded necklaces, wreath ornaments for them to take home, goody bags. We wil snack on cookies and milk, hot rich chocolate, fudge, candy canes, spiced mulled tea, juice, and everyone else is bringing a dish.
Will and I also made reindeer food to share with our guests. Making and sprinkling the reindeer food (chex cereal, oatmeal, glitter, and sequins in a ziploc bag) as a family has been a tradition for us and we loook forward to it each year. I hope these are some memories my boys will be able to share with their children.
Today, while Louis napped, Will helped me roll out the dough to make our ornaments for our "ornament painting party" tomorrow! We will let you know how they turn out.
