The girls and I are going to be making some Salt Dough Ornaments to dress up the house and give away to friends as gifts. I have all of the ingredients for the dough but I need to go purchase some glitter, beads and other nice things to decorate them. I will show pics of it on Wednesday or Thursday. The days are beginning to get busier and busier that's for sure.
A friend of mine's mum makes cinnamon ones, they smell devine around the house, very comforting. She has a double story place and she does her stair case up with the most magnificent lights and homemade ornaments. She also has some very old American Quilts that hang over her balcony upstairs, setting the Christmas spirit.
Another thing we will be doing is getting some nice chocolate and making Christmas treats for people. Oh, and I almost forgot, I have to use the mould in the Advent Calendar of Mia's to make more chocolates..she gormandised the lot of them the day I bought the thing!! So, I have to make that again and hide it, LOL.
My boy Tom is almost 10yrs old, he told me his mates told him that Santa is not real. Then, he lost molar tooth the other day and he put it in a glass with water....for the toothfairy to come deliver some coinage. I am glad he can still make believe in something for a short while, or maybe he has me stooged trying to keep it all alive for the sake of the younger ones.
I have explained to him it is such an important time because we all get together as an extended family, and none more special than this year with my Pa back in our lives. Not to forget that we are also giving thanks for being alive and blessed to all have each other.
I am also thinking of making a Nativity set to display this year...but where to steal a donkey from and where to find Three Wise Men.
Mia has her new water bottle around her neck with her M.I.A Mia name on it.
We will be making Christmas decorations tonight, will blog them tomorrow :)
