All right boys. When you read this in the future, please try to remember that I TRIED to be good at doing crafts with you. I TRIED to have patience, & I TRIED to let you do as much as possible without taking over & doing it myself.
In the case of the Ginger bread house, I did most of it myself. It was a little tricky. And yes, I put each individual shingle on the roof.
You guys tried your hardest to get the eyes & nose to stay on our Rudolph candy canes, but eventually I vacuumed them all up.
Your Christmas countdown you did almost by yourself. They turned out wonderful. But we never remembered to take off a loop each day. It ended up being 3 or 4 days at a time (which made for good hand cuffs) so I think that depletes the purpose of learning what a day is or counting them down.
These trees would have lasted forever if Nathan wasn't obsessed with the little gingerbread men. He took them all off, I swear I picked up more than what we put on. And Daddy just got mad at them because they were always in the way. Maybe Christmas 2009 will be a little more hands on & not Mommy doing most of the work!!
(by the way, thank you for breaking so many Christmas decorations & ornaments. Now I don't have to store them anymore!!)
