Over Christmas break we made a ginger bread house together, made and decorated ginger bread cookies.
Then we played a trick on the kids. They've been naughty lately do I told them coal and sticks was what they were getting in their stockings. Well Christmas eve day, we let them get into their stockings and what did they find but sticks, coal and a bath scrubby to clean up their act. :) Dakotah the whole time told me it would never happen and his look was priceless. He looked at me like "oh snap, she wasn't joking and this totally stinks!". Madi threw her coal and asked why she got it cause she hadn't been bad which was true but still had to include her in the joke. They enjoyed their coal gum and wondered the rest of the day if they would get any more in their stocking to go through in the morning, that was better than what they just found. It's so fun being parents.
