Elf day 12

This morning Peppermint was sitting on little miss's couch with her dollies. But the cheeky thing had found one of her dummies :p

She got slightly side tracked by the puzzle that she got from daycare as a Christmas present but then noticed and ripped it out if his hands :'D

Christmas cookies

We did some Christmas craft at playgroup this week and I decided to make some Christmas cookies :)
They all loved them :) it was funny watching the babies nibbling on their cookies and then crawling around chasing each other, it did make a bit of a mess but nothing a quick vacuum can't fix

Christmas gift tags

I printed off some cute Christmas shapes and little miss painted them either red or green  (mixing the two colours looks gross)
I still can't believe how happy she was :) looks like more painting is on the carda

Christmas wrapping paper

Christmas craft at playgroup was so much fun :) lucky there is an art teacher who is one of the mum's :)
We made some Christmas star wrapping paper with red and green paint and star foam shapes. Little miss had a great time  (which is great considering last time she had a tantrum) there was paint everywhere :)
Now for the hard part, wrapping presents!!
What are your Christmas craft activities?

Elf day 11

This morning Peppermint was building a lego wall, lucky he was checking that it was straight ;)
Little miss gets so excited to see him every morning :) 14 days to go :D

Cookie shot glasses

I'm going to start this with COMPLETE FAIL!!!!!
I really didn't appreciate how difficult it was to make cookie shot glasses. I bought the mold and thought I'd give it a try.
After making a regular sugar dough I stuffed them into the mold and put them in the cupboard. Baked until slightly gold on top (16 minutes) I thought they were cooked. So took them out of the oven and let them cool. I even put them in the fridge (a tip from one of the other people that have tried to make them).
I pulled the first one out of the mold and it was raw. So I cooked them for another 8 minutes. The tops were really golden brown and looked good. Put them in the fridge again and pulled another one out and still raw :(
So I pulled them all out and thought I'd cook them a bit more. They turned to cookie puddles :'D
So I will try again tomorrow

Today peppermint was playing a game of ball with lavender and hush :) little miss was very excited to see peppermint and we spent some time throwing the ball to each other :)
The look on her face when she sees him makes everything worth it!!!
