Making merry

My dad sent the boys a baking set with 100 different cookie cutters since they so love to help me bake. Although I'm not sure how licking the bowl and spoons is actually helping, but that's not the point. It came with a recipe for dough ornaments so we whipped up a batch and painted them proper.

Ben had great fun!

We tried to involve Alex too...
but really he was mostly interested in eating the paint and ornaments.


A bonus shot of Alex trying to figure out why I'm standing on a chair, just because he's so cute....even with red paint dripping down his chin.

Ben's masterpieces. Aren't they beautiful?

After the 2 tons of paint dried we blinged them up a bit.

We stopped on the way home from school yesterday to pick up a small tree to go on the boys' dresser and hung up the ornaments.


I'm starting to get real excited for Christmas! We will go shopping later this week and pull out more decorations. Next week will be a visit to the jolly ole fat man himself. It will be interesting to see how Alex handles it. I already know what Ben's reaction will be....he'll be so star struck he'll just stare and won't say a word.

4 thanks for stopping by, i love comments!:
