Photo challenge: joyous

Joyous. That’s why it took me so long to post this, I had to wait for an early evening joyousness and then wait for the kids to go to bed before I could post about it.

Joyous is:

Walking to the lot after Ally's done school and picking a Christmas tree.

What's this? Having Phil suddenly want to bake gingerbread cookies!

I *stealthily* picked out the gingermen/women and tree cutters. It fit with the day's theme.

Decorating the tree as a family before snuggling in for some gingerbread cookies and A Christmas Carol before bed.

Now I just have to be as patient as possible before putting out presents….maybe tomorrow is a good day….

My Daily Craft from yesterday is:

Popsicle Stick Snowmen

I painted the sticks white a few days prior, mainly to save on the "waiting for paint to dry" phase.

I then used masking tape to hold the sticks in place AND prevent the kids from painting over the snowmen's faces.

The kids then glued on felt hats, scarves and noses that I had cut out while we were waiting for the buttons to dry.

One permanent marker's worth of eyes and mouths later and we have 8 happy snowmen.

This craft would work equally as well for any other characters you wish to do. Santas, reindeer, elves, penguins, whatever you and your child(ren) are capable of.

Credit for the snowman idea is linked here. I found the picture through Pinterest.
