Every year I love putting out my Willow Tree Nativity. I eventually want to get the rest of it (I"m missing some animals and shepherds and maybe an angel, also the stand) but I love putting it out on top of the "card catalog" piece that Adam's dad refinished for us when we were engaged. I love the rough wood on top of the rough wood piece. Here's how it looks without too much fussing to it.
The other day while doing the dishes I paused to check on Max, it was just a little too quiet and that could be disaster in our house.
This reenactment shows what may have happened....
to make my nativity look like this....
It's been snowing a little each day here. Friends that live three house north west of here have been having blizzard conditions so we are thankful to be just a little bit south. but the wind is fierce today and the snow is blowing around. But a few days ago we had just enough snow to make it fun outside.
I made sugar cookies the other day, but hadn't got to ice them yet because I was out of powdered sugar. Inspired by Laura's blog about icing cookies with Ella, I decided we should ice them this morning.
It started with just playing the cupboards
And then things got interesting...
Afterwards Max had an icing mustache and I told him he looked like Santa... He responded with his best "HO HO HO"
