jingle bells and biscuit smells


We have been getting ready for Christmas in a hop, skip and a jump chaotic kind of way.  This morning Daniel and Kirsten were able to take boxes of biscuits to school and playgroup to distribute to all their friends.IMG_0184

We baked the biscuits together and then I discovered the fun of letting them both type the labels on the computer (I’m amazed by how much D has learned about how to use a computer in one term at schoool).  They love racing upstairs to get the result from the printer.IMG_0178I did find myself wondering why I do things like this?  The most honest reasons I came up with:  it gives us a constructive and purposeful activity to do together after school; I can’t get my head round sitting down and writing cards to every child in the class (how to find out the names in the first place?); it gives me a high level of satisfaction to complete a small and effective project.  What about the recipients?  Well, they might love our biscuits or they might just eat the icing.  My sweet little packets will be torn up by breaktime, but we don’t mind!  Happy 13th of December!
