Today I tried to deliver neighbor gifts with the kids, but it started pouring rain. We decided to postpone that and came home to make paper snowflakes. I tried to recreate a scene out of Porter Rockwell's paintings, but the truth is I became impatient at the mess and frustration of scissors, paper, glitter glue, etc. I sent everyone to take a rest and took one myself as I reread part of one of the Anne of Green Gable books. After that I was able to start over and C literally made dinner with me, browning meat, sauteeing onions and adding ingredients. I was so proud of him. Little C helped me make biscuits and by the time T got home, there was a candlelight dinner on the table with my Grandma's best china and we had a real "tea" party as we ate the most delicious, heavy on the kid participation, meal. Holiday spirit, rescued.
