Made easier by being fairly snow bound still, although i think that will change tomorrow. Our street is an ice-rink – i went out last night and kind of wished i hadn’t as the roads were VERY slippy.
And this charming little foamy kit kept the girls entertained all evening while Max and i locked ourselves in the lounge to tot up present piles and do last minute sorting.
They had an alarming amount of fun with these actually, including some sort o weird judging show with pretend phone ins and results programmes. 🙄
Don’t think this was particularly easy and my girls aren’t the most patient of children. I had to walk away, given my need for things to be arty but they seemed to have fun, so who am i to complain?
While doing these, i was preparing some pomanders for them to make – they’ve turned out so beautifully (you can see them on flickr) that am going to save their picture till the last post.
Otherwise we’ve been busy tidying the house and making it feel nice; Max has worked so hard that i really wanted him to feel like home was a place he could just walk back into and it all be done and clean and cleared and ready for Xmas (Nesting Prairie Muffin Alert!) – and we have – and it feels lovely.
