Good morning everyone. Christmas decorations here are very simple, partly because it just appeals to me and partly because our two 1 1/2 year old grandchildren are very busy, if you know what I mean 😱
Our table top tree is decorated with lots of clear light and the Chrismon ornaments stitched by my mom.
We had a spur of the moment cousin sleepover this weekend. I had easy meals on hand to serve but needed some fruit.
So I made a simple winter fruit salad with ingredients already in our fridge- diced red grapes, clementine sections and an Ambrosia apple sliced very thin. It was really good too!
These 4 having supper. After they ate, each one got a shower and then we moved on to this fun activity.
My daughter sent over a box of cookie dough play dough she had bought from a fundraiser.
The grands really had fun making lots of colorful cookies.
I was amazed how good they tasted.
While the kiddos made their creations, I put all the clothes they wore to our house in the washer and dryer.
Then I laid them back out so dressing the next morning was very easy. I keep clothes here but this was much easier than trying to match up 4 outfits from the toy room closet.
One trip to CVS after church on Sunday - I used $15 extracarebucks, some CVS app and redbox coupons and 3 manufacturers coupons. I spent $2.76 for 2 Charmin, 2 granola bars, 1 shave cream and 1 makeup face wipes. And I got back $5 extracarebucks for my next trip.
