Visions of Sugar Plums....

What is a Sugar Plum anyway?

well according to Wikipedia: A sugar plum is a piece of dragee candy that is made of sugar and shaped in a small round or oval shape

Ok...Got it. I wanted to make sure I knew what I was talking about here.

So my little blog has been quiet because of....well, sugar plums. We attempted this weekend to make our own gingerbread house out of a kit we bought at the grocery store. It had major flaws and ended in a sticky half eaten mess.

Friday night we went to see my niece dance in the Nutcracker, it was simply amazing. The boys have been dressing up at the Rat King and the Nutcracker and fighting each other to the death since then. Nothing says Merry Christmas like a good sword fight.

This is the last week of school and there is so much going on that there is hardly any time to take pictures or blog about it. Ok...well I did get my camera out today for round two of our gingerbread houses. This time, school was in charge with a little help from the room moms.

Logan loved that I was there to help but not so happy that I had to run between two classes to help out. He could not sit down when I would go next door to help out Isaac's class. In fact, either one of them could sit down all day, I think they were on a sugar overload...

Here is Logan's house

And Isaac was very good at icing the entire house...yes that big glob of white is all icing...

Can you say SUGAR PLUM???

It's been a long week already and it is only Tuesday, we have lots more before they are out on Friday. But hopefully....hopefully we can kick back next week before Christmas and Jonah's birthday for a little R&R.

I might even get to sleep in...ok that is just crazy talk now. Nevermind.

Oh and a big thank you to my Mom for coming up today. Do you know how hard it is to make meringue icing, pass it out, take pictures, slap on a few candies here and there, smear more icing on a roof, run back to the other class to see if they need more help all while trying to hold a wiggley almost 1 year old who keeps sneeking a lick or two of icing? Not easy!

I think she was sneeking a kiss to her sugar plum!
