First thing this morning we started on our Gingerbread Men. (We're making some ornaments for a gift for a certain Beloved whom we will be seeing very soon.)
And of course we decorated a few.
And ate a few.
Lots and lots of Christmas music.
And lots of snow eating.
Loud, wild dancing to Feliz Navidad. :)
We painted and then sealed our pick-up sticks we're making.
We'll tell you all about that very soon.
We made Compost Tea... and talked about carbon and nitrogen and plants.
We are waiting not-so-patiently to see if Round 2 of our leaf chromatography experiment will work. (We are trying again today. hmmph.)
There were interesting discussions:
"Mom... You don't go to jail for a long time for taking just one toy, right?"
(No, he didn't steal anything. He was watching Arthur and wondering about how things work.)
"Mom... does the mayor of Salt Lake have those talking cards?"
(Cue cards for speeches.)
And inventive experiments and investigations,
"Wait! I'm gonna study-ate with that. I need that paper!"
And there's been singing of Googol songs - from Multiplication Vacation.
And there has been eggnog.
Have you found eggnog yet, this year? :)
And a request for Chocolate Chip Cookies.
And beanbag deconstruction. (Madeleine. sigh.)
Oh yeah. That's why I put them downstairs, out of the way.
Well, better go, I guess.
We have a pioneer video to watch while we make those cookies.....
we'll see you tomorrow.
