My kids are out of school, we have no more school/church/work parties, all of our Sub-for Santa gifts have been purchased, wrapped, and delivered, most of our gifts are wrapped, so I think things are finally starting to slow down. That leaves more time to enjoy the season.
Here's some of the recent highlights from Plan December:
December 12: Teacher Gifts. Homemade Hot Chocolate in mason jars
A friend gave me this awesome recipe for homeade hot chocolate. Here it is:
5 1/3 cups dry milk (the kind they have here in Mex. is whole milk, it makes it really creamy)
2 1/2 Nestle Quik
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup dry creamer (the vanilla and amaretto flavors make it really yummy!)
Mix and then sift ingrediants. Place in mug and add hot water.
December 15: Juan Carlos' (3 1/2) Christmas Posada
As the teachers marched the kids out in front of all the parents, Juan Carlos made a quick break away and found me in the audience. He stayed with me for the first number and then when they pulled out the tamborines and he decided to participate. By the end he was a dancing fool. Pretty cute to watch.
December 18: Growing Tree from familyfun.com
A work in progress, but I think it's going to turn out cute.
December 18: I couldn't find any tri-beads here, so we made these "Fancy Fans" from the Dec. issue of Family Fun.
These were super easy, all you need is wrapping paper, tape, and a stapler.
Hope you are all enjoying the season!
