Christmas Around the World - Day 1

In our World Geography studies this year, we are going to "travel the world" 
to see how people in other countries celebrate Christmas.  
We are going to attempt to make a treat from each country and 
make some type of ornament or craft to represent the countries as well.

Today we began with South America. 

We made these delicious 

Alfajores de Dulce de Leche Cookies.

Ethan had a fabulous time helping me make the cookies.

And we all enjoyed eating them as well!

Where is Ethan?

Every night when we go to bed, I always check on the boys &
 give them a kiss goodnight. (Shhh...don't tell Evan!) 
When I checked on Ethan last night, this is what I saw...

Do you even see a body part anywhere? 

It took me a minute to find his hand.

And then, I uncovered his precious face!

And when I showed him these pictures this morning, 
my boy with such an imagination giggled so much!  
He couldn't believe I took a picture of him!  
He said he was trying to keep the light out!

Thanksgiving Craft

I got this idea from my dear friend, Kim.  She has a handprint turkey that she hangs up every fall that her daughter made when she was little.  I decided I could paint a canvas and put the turkey on it.  Now I have a permanent fall decoration made with Ethan's sweet kindergarten hands.
