On Monday I decided that it would be our last school day until after the holidays.
As a homeschooling mom, I get to do that.
(Don't ask me about the two in public school...
it so annoys me that they have to be in school until the 23rd!)
I was ready for a break
and when I counted out the days until Christmas
and saw that there were 12 left,
I figured we could have the 12 days of Christmas break!
We aren't going to buy any partridges or pear trees
maybe we'll do a little dancing and leaping
... it's possible,
but I definitely wanted to do something Christmassy each day.
Today, we took an idea from Crafty Crow and made a couple of ornaments.
Very easy and very fun!
The only tough part was waiting for the crystals to form.
Not that it took terribly long (just a few hours)
but we kept going back to look and see if anything was happening.
(Not just Julia either... me too!)
We're loving the results.
So sparkly and magical!
Tomorrow, we're getting haircuts, buying Christmas outfits and doing a little gift shopping!
