Happy Holidays All!

The girls decorated teddy bears and candy canes and we even made a little mouse, which hopefully will be the only thing stirring the night before Christmas.

It’s great fun for big kids who can let out their creative genius and for little fingers who enjoy topping the sprinkles and love the help and sense of accomplishment.
