I'm joining with Amy (she's back!) at Love Made My Home for Five on Friday!
Five Things I Did with my Nieces on Thanksgiving Weekend.
1) We shopped!
On Thanksgiving, I was informed by the child to the left of this picture that she was going to wake me up at 5:00 a.m. by knocking on the door, after first stopping for Dan's Donuts. Well, her Mom (giving 'the look' to the right of the picture) woke up said child, and said child's cousin, at 7:00 a.m! (teehee)
2. We CraftedAfter they put on their pj's....which let me just say if I had made those pj's for them, and gave them as a gift, they would have liked them as much as Ralphie liked his bunny rabbit pj's in A Christmas Story! Anyway, they put on their pj's and we crafted.
That was it for Friday. It was a long day and they were tired, but I think we did something wrong with the couch/bed!
3) We baked cookies
The next day, Saturday, we got a bit of a late start. We called Mom up and she came over and we made Christmas cookies. Well, mostly I did dishes!
4) We went looking at lightsThat evening we went to look at the lights. We started out at the Seiberling Mansion. After Santa arrived in a horse drawn carriage,
And 5, we made posters!That evening I got a text from my sister. She wanted to know if we could make posters for the parade tomorrow for the Noon Kiwanis.
So the 5th thing I did with my nieces....
I LOVE A PARADE! What about you?
PS. I thought you might enjoy the recipe for the pumpkin cookies. They are really soft.
