One week left......the kids are home!

 I tried my hand at Krumkake cookies today and
(Little House in Paradise) Sherri had a Peppermint bark recipe.
Sherri and I are going to have to go over the recipe and see where I failed
twice at this......It may have been I had too many helpers......
I picked up this little guys at the thrift store this year....I think he's cute!
I thought I'd share the kids school and their Christmas party.
Mimi's class got to talk to Santa it was so sweet to see how serious
they all get when they ask for the impossible a pony!

I always love the gift exchange....there so funny!
It was so sad because this is Cory's last year at elementary school
and his last Christmas party!
Mimi and I came down and checked out his party
he looks so serious maybe he's trying to say, leave you two!!!

Oh I forgot to finish telling you about my Krukake's 
they turned out great after about the first 20, I finally got the hang of it!
Have a great weekend!


  1. Looks like it was a great party and how nice that they get to exchange gifts!

    I am sorry that the bark didn't turn out, email me and let's see if we can't figure it out.


  2. That llooks so sweet, just as our Sinterklaas!

  3. I used to love the Christmas parties at school when the kids were young. So much fun! I know what you mean by children asking for their impossible gifts. May as well ask Santa huh?

    What are Krumkake cookies by the way? xx

  4. When I worked in a local nursery school (the children were aged between 3-5) one of the dads, quite a large chap, dressed up as Santa..........I was sat on the play mat with about ten of the littleone's sat around me waiting for Santa's arrival.......he came through the doors with a very loud HO HO HO, and all ten children burst into tears and threw themselves on top of me in blind panic.......I didn't know whether to laugh or cry, suffice to say we didn't have Santa visit again and instead one of us dressed up as 'the fairy from the top of the christmas tree'.......peace reined once more.

    Sorry to hear the baking didn't go too well, you know what they say......practise makes perfect. x

  5. I made some krumkake's yesterday. I make them every year. Love them :)

  6. I love all the kids christmas parties too! They are all so excited (I'm sure our big boys look more excited when we're not around) it's a buzz! ENJOY!!X

  7. Sweet photos of the childrens school parties.
    Especially that toothless grin on your daughter!
    I'm going to try Sherri's bark. I just assumed it would be easy, peasey. So i you have any pointers, please let me know!
    Have a great Sunday-Kimberly
