Lady Hiva and I, of course, can't let a season pass without crafts of some sort. We decorated for a party at Church for Lady Hiva, we made cupcakes, she made Christmas caramels and fudge, we cut Cri-cut houses for that candy...so busy!
But not too busy to take Tau'aho sledding. Lady has taken him nearly everyday. The cheap $5usd sled broke after about a week so we went to buy another one. Little did we know it was going to be a journey! I had seen some nice sleds at Costco when I was there for work there was about 60 of them. Lady told me to buy one, but I didn't want to "waste time" so we went back right I was done. In the three hours between they sold all of them! All 60! The guy looked on the computer and all Costcos within a 100 mile radius had also had sold out. That began our going to 5 Wal-marts, a Target and finally finding the last two sleds at Sam's Club. I bought both so they are now out too! hehe!
We made Ginger Bread houses...which really is interpreted as Lady made a serious effort, I only used the gross candy (which is why my house only had chocolate chips and purple and orange Skittles on it) and Lucky Dragon would put one piece of candy on and then eat three or four. So his house looks Spartan compared to Lady Hiva's.
One of our favorite things to do with Tau'aho is to see the lights--because he gets so excited to see them. We took him to Spanish Fork to see their drive through Festival of Lights.
We delivered bread and cookies to our neighbors and Lucky Dragon insisted that he be the one to knock and give the "presence." He was so excited when people would answer. The first few doors he would proudly exclaim, "Happy Halloween!" We would practice as we walked to the next house and then he said, "Happy Birthday!" Haha...by the time we made it around the block he had "Merry Christmas!" down. We love this little guy and We are loving this Christmas spirit.
