I wish I could show pics from Phoebe's first grade holiday party. So much fun and the kids were so cute toiling away on the crafty projects I had for them. Here's Oscar using the stamps I made to make something at home. I made little tree stamps and then cut shapes in pencil erasers to stamp designs on the trees and the kids stamped them onto paper cones to fill with treats. Oscar is stamping up the wooden box from the Trader Joe caramels that I buy every year just for the cool box, not at all to gorge on the yummy treats inside.
Oscar learned how to make snowflakes in school yesterday and was all excited to show me. I kept my mouth shut on how I've shown him every year since birth how to cut out snowflakes. This is why this kid could never be homeschooled!
In between chess and basketball we squeezed in some decorating with candy. Again this year Christmas is right at the beginning of school break which is a drag because we have to get all the fun in while still in school and on our regular schedule. But we're gonna do it!
