Tomorrow is the last day of school before Christmas vacation. Molly and all of her little friends are positively giddy and it shows in the stride of their step and their smiles and giggles. We're getting all of the teacher gifts together and also the candy canes that Molly is giving to her classmates. Molly made cards for each of her teachers and can't wait to give them out.
At our house, we can't wait until it's time for Molly to come home. That will signal the real start of vacation for all of us. We have over a week where all of us are home and there isn't much on the agenda other than a few get togethers. That means that we can spend lots of time playing and enjoying each other's company.
Our fruit side is kiwi and apple slices. We put them in the red and green pattern and added one of Molly's favorite picks from this season.
Our fun side is Utz Holiday Shaped Pretzels. These are so cute. They are shaped like Christmas trees, stars (or snowflakes) and bells. We couldn't resist.
Our Fun Friday treat is a pizzelle cookie. Molly's Daddy makes the most delicious pizzelles. Our whole house smells amazing because he made about eight dozen anise pizzelles last night. They are one of Molly's favorite cookies of all time.
Our extra Christmas treat is a small candy cane. The story of the candy cane is that it was made to remind us of the true meaning of Christmas. It is shaped like a "J" to represent Jesus and that is why we put it in her lunch that way.
From Our House to Yours, Merry Christmas One and All and a Healthy and Prosperous New Year to You!
