I saw these snowflakes HERE and thought them the perfect craft/snack. Perfect in that their easy assembly and 3 ingredients appealed to my non-crafty lazy side.
Although I learned they aren't really for the lazy because you are left with tons of colored sugar throughout your now very sticky kitchen.
Probably just my kids. They like to pretend it's snowing sugar. So fun.
This is Emry with 2 little kids she was babysitting. They look like they belong to us huh? Apparently White People can all look alike too.
So after a day of shopping, making gingerbread, 'easy' snowflakes and tons of cleaning we took our 3, my sisters 2, and the 2 Emry was babysitting to our church Nativity Festival. Yes that's 7 children. To a festival with tons of breakable Creche displays.
Glenn and I are super smart.
Our church does this every year and it is awesome! It totally gets you in the Christmas spirit with all of the displays, music from groups and schools throughout the community and a room with an actual live nativity.
Didn't think it appropriate to take a picture of baby Jesus, but he was absolutely precious in his little manger. The room they were in was decorated so authentic and Mary and Joseph looked so great with their robes and their little baby. Although I did notice baby Jesus had "his" ears pierced.
LDS people from all over Temecula donate their Creche's to display. The result is stunning. Especially with a beautiful symphony singing and playing Christmas music.
This Harp music was lovely. She was just your entrance entertainment. As soon as you entered the main Hall there was choir upon choir singing and jingling their hearts out.
All our darlings. Mine are as follows: Ethan with the 'I am going to ruin your picture' face, Emry with the 'I am hiding the sweater you made me wear because it's so ugly' pose, and Lila rockin' the hot pink leg warmers' because what else would you wear to visit 'Baby Jesus'.
I was on those kids the whole night. 'Don't touch', 'Back away', 'Stay together', 'Just look', 'No reaching', on and on and on.
That's why I love Glenn. He's so chill. He kinda, sorta parents differently than me. You know me with no cell phone who's eyes never leave the 7 kids around all the hundreds of breakables.
Glenn knows how to put all the responsibility on me.
Well played Glenn.
