The official temp was 20 this morning when I woke up waaay too early. That’s OK, because this body is staying inside until it warms up!
Don’t we have the cutest little elf?! Amy did a Christmas gift project for Will’s class Thursday, so I went over to assist her…and get some sugah from my wee sweetie.
Amy had already made up a big batch of hand/foot scrub (Epsom salt, olive oil, peppermint oil). She had the kids place the crystals in small Mason jars, add a paper Christmas muffin cup on top of the lid (great idea!), then screw on the lid ring, and place a small bow on top (why didn’t I get a photo of the finished jars? Sheesh). She had product labels for the outside that I placed on each jar, and I wrote each child’s name on a label that went on the bottom of the jar to identify the owner. Easy peasy and useful gift for each child to take home to mom, dad, grandma…anybody.
That Amy is a good mom. She has done a class craft for all three of her kiddos, spreading lots of Christmas cheer in the county. It’s fun to pay forward a little happiness.
I have a warm, cuddly girl sitting in my lap this morning. She doesn’t like the cold outside any better than I do, and it also means that MM is not here. She is such a daddy’s girl, but I settle for second best and am OK with that status. I remind her that I am the one who cleans out her littler box, but that never moves up my rank. Sigh.
Stay warm…and spread some Christmas cheer, y’all!
