Our Christmas break was so great. We travelled all over the place and are so grateful that the Lord kept our van together for the entire time!
We got together with the Easton side first.
Here is how the family started out:
And here is what it has become!
The cousins had a lot of fun together.
My sister-in-law did an amazing job of planning the whole time, right down to several craft activities for the kids which they all enjoyed immensely. Did you know you can mix epsom salt with water to create a paste? You can paint that paste over construction paper or magazine cut-out glued onto a card. It will dry into a sparkly snowy looking layer on top of the paper. A really simple, fairly mess-less activity! Another thing that I particularly enjoyed was making snowflake decorations with pipe cleaners and beads. I think the craft was for the kids but it held my attention for a good 45 minutes. :)
