Ornaments and Santa Weekend

Did anyone else have a hard time saying goodbye to their kids this morning?  The tragedy in Newtown hurts my heart so much.  My Aiden is in 1st grade, to think of 20 of his classmates lives being cut so short is truly unimaginable.  My sympathy and prayers go out to all affected by this awful day.

Hard to transition from that.  I guess I’ll show you some pictures of our weekend.

We made Cinnamon Ornaments Saturday morning.  They are really easy to make, just a 4oz bottle of cinnamon and 3/4 c. of applesauce.  Then roll out between plastic wrap, cut and bake at 200 degrees for 2 1/2 hrs.  Don’t forget to poke a hole in them to hang them (a straw works well for this).  These didn’t turn out as well as I’d have liked, next time I’ll remember to not roll the dough out so thin, I’m thinking that might help. 


That afternoon we went to visit the Big Guy.  He is such a great Santa, the boys had fun talking to him.


Dynamite thought it would be fun to t.p. our tree last night.


I am ready for Christmas.  I have all the gifts wrapped and under the tree.  My husband’s birthday is Saturday, I have one more present to wrap up for that then I’ll be done wrapping gifts until birthdays roll around in February.  One week to go!!!

Merry Christmas!

  1. Yes, it was so difficult saying goodbye and dropping the kiddos off this morning...I agree. It really resonates that tomorrow is never a given.

    I love looking at your Elf on The Shelf's shenanigans. He is a funny little elf! :D

    Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
