it's almost Christmas!

We have attended church here for 2 weeks. Today Roger sang in the choir, Jeffrey sang a song, 'Mary's lullaby' with the other young men and women, and Andrew sang 2 songs with the Primary; Picture a Christmas and May I Hold the Baby. The last song I had never heard; it was so nice I would love a recording of it.
After church we made fudge. Andrew chopped up 2 candy canes and we experimented with adding peppermint extract to a plate full of the fudge. We added 1/8 teaspoon peppermint oil and the 2 candy canes. Everyone liked it. Then Andrew made peppermint bark. I'm not a huge fan of the bark but it is something a child can do; therefore we'll make it and eat it. We also made a batch of pumpkin cookies, we ate the WHOLE batch, even though 1/2 of the batch did not have chocolate chips, so sad, we ran out of chips!
Then we played a game of 'Apples to Apples'.
The game was fun, but I'm getting sick so should go to long.
