Mid-season miscellaneous

This advent calendar-cupboard is a huge hit with the kiddos. We’ve found Cost Plus to be a great place to find little treats from around the world (isn’t the marzipan deliciously cute?)

This gingerbread house is the first traditional one we’ve ever made–the kids are very pleased with it.

A couple of days ago I found E. Nesbit’s Christmas story The Conscience Pudding at the library; I’m reading it aloud to the kids at bedtime and it’s as good as all her others. It’s out of print but you can read it online here.

And tomorrow night we’ll celebrate Hannukah with latkes, latkes for everyone!
