Pack It Pretty

Last day of school today before Christmas break, means classroom Christmas parties. Sadly, Shimmer seems to have caught whatever is going around and is running quite a fever today. She will miss her party... crashing at home on the couch. Here are a few pictures though of the treats I whipped up for Shine's class.

These popcorn balls were basically made with a rice krispie treat mixture of marshmallow, butter and vanilla, sprinkled with some festive nonpariels. What makes them extra-special I think is the packaging. Christmas cupcake wrappers, ribbon reminiscient of candy canes, bakers twine and pretty gift tags up the cute-ness!

Do small things with great love... hopefully making their days merry and bright.

Speaking of merry and bright, you should've seen the smiles when the kids opened their advent book tonight. Even Shimmer, who is definitely not herself today with this flu-bug, showed some excitement when she relized what was beneath the wrapping paper. A new book for both of them to share... Dr. Suess's How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

She read for awhile before getting tired and turning it over to Shine, who was eager to help anyway, and I finished it up. Glad to see they like their new book :)
