What do you do when your kids are sick and Christmas is just around the corner?
For us it was pulling out the Gingerbread house kit that I bought a few months ago for just such an occasion.
SMILES!! Someone is happy!
That little man was quite proud of the fact that he arranged those peppermints JUST like the picture on the box. ;) Nice job there Tater Bug! :)
We waited for the frosting to harden and Rebecca to take her nap.Meanwhile, Hannah felt more like sitting up and participating which I was glad for. I mean, it's supposed to be fun! :)
Every hand on deck!
There's another smile!
(I think I somehow convinced them that the candies were not edible. lol! Nathan would look at the frosting on his hand and go quickly wash it off. Ha! And Rebecca looked longingly at those gumdrops but she ate nary a one. Am I mean?)
I think they did a sweet job! :) And they were so pleased with themselves and it really helped to take the edge of yet another day of sickness...
Find the good in the day!
