Santa Claus is Coming To Town

Kindy finished up last week. L's last day at kindy ever! He starts school next year. So we made some shortbread to give to his kindy teachers as a Christmas gift. L helped with a bit of cooking cutting and a lot more dough eating LOL Unfortunately there are none of these left now :( Went to have one with a cuppa this morning and was sadly disappointed. Must make some more this week :)

And while I'm on the subject of kindy, it's been fantastic for craft ideas at home! The kids were making lots of Christmas decorations in the last few weeks and one of the things L did was a painted pinecone with glitter. So we decided to make some more of our own at home to go with the one he made at kindy. He had collected a bunch of pinecones from the park where we held his 4th birthday party last year, which I've just had sitting in a bowl looking all brown and boring. Now they look much more interesting!

And as an added festive bonus, our outdoor "entertaining" area is now all sparkly too :) Pat on the back for me for having the foresight to do this activity outside! I now have two sparkly boys also, and a lot of sparkly clothes, but it was fun.
