Baking Cookies

The other day Gusgus, Ella's Elf on the shelf brought cookie cutters. That means Ella wanted to make sugar cookies. We had fun while doing it. She mixed the dough, rolled it out, cut her cookies, and frosted them after they were baked and cooled. I can see this being another tradition we do every year. 

Christmas walk

Last night since the weather was shockingly warm we decided to take the kids to Carlise Reservations Holiday Walk. It is a about a half mile all decorated with lights, blow-ups, and displays. It was very nice and both kids loved it. Hopefully this is a tradition we can do every year.

Preschool Christmas Party

Aubriella had her preschool Christmas party yesterday. It was a snack pot luck buffet then the kids sang Christmas songs followed by a surprise appearance by Santa Claus. It was a lot of fun. 
For the pot luck I signed up and brought a veggie tray. Everyone else waa bringing a lot of sugary others, I needed something to counter act all that sugar.

Ella also brought a small gift for each if her 4 teachers. We did little nail polishes with hand lotion and gloves. They turned out cute. 

I was surprised that Ella sat on Santa's lap. She did tell him he wasn't the real Santa since we saw the real one the day before. But still no ideas what she wants for Christmas.
