Christmas is Coming: Day 18

I guess my son doesn't believe in a day of rest. Sunday or not, he wanted to be doing - especially after the Packers lost their game. He asked every five minutes: "Is it time to do a Christmas project yet?" Eventually I managed to get enough other things cleared away to make that possible.
Here are the fixings of what we made:

Getting those sticky marshmallows out of the bag requires a unique method of concentration...

And here is the finished product - an individual serving of Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows and Peppermint Sticks to go with each of the mugs Ian decorated yesterday. Oh yummy. I MAY have blown my special diet and had one of my own.

With only a week to go, Merry Christmas!

We're gathering the supplies for that project too! Just not the creative mugs part.

It struck me as I was reading the first part of your blog about "Ian needs to be doing something" that it's your own fault. You are creating your own...uh, for lack of a better term, creating your own monster. =/ Much like ran too much with my dog and created a Muscle.
I'm teasing of course but all your projects only encourage him. It's a wonderful thing though, don't worry, I'm all for it. :)

Where on earth do you find all these ideas and do I ever feel like a loser mom.

Oh mom. Loser shpoozer. We may not have done all kinds of grand projects, but it's not like I sit around moping all day that we didn't do projects every day as kids! =)
