For the past few days, the kids and I have been getting ready for Christmas. And with the weather being so cold, it’s nice to have some activities for the kids to do while being cooped up inside. I made some cranberry bread, and had a half a bag left, so I thought “I’ll have the kids make cranberry & popcorn garland.” I didn’t plan to be out of popcorn, and the idea of using movie theater butter microwave popcorn, just didn’t sound appealing. As a result, we just made cranberry garland. Improvise right? The kids had fun nonetheless!
My daugther wasn’t quite sure what to do. Although I showed her several times how to do it, she ended up most of the time, just watching her brothers.
My son had strung a few of the berries on, but ended up having more fun with just the sting.
Our next fun tradition was to make fudge! I made a big pan of it and topped it off with some sweet shredded coconut. And what’s not to love about licking the spoon?
And most nights, this is how you’ll find us, curled up on the couch. On this particular night we watched A Charlie Brown Christmas. Brings back memories of when I was a child and watched the very same movie.
And last, but not least, although NOT a Christmas tradition in the Pulver house, it’s too darn funny not to share. My son found my daughter’s binkini top and thought it was pretty funny!
