Candy Cane Christmas Party

On December 12th we had a Candy Cane Christmas Party. The party was themed around this book "The Legend of the Candy Cane".

Elizabeth baking goodies for the party.

Warm cookies coming right up...

the 4 big kids made peppermint bark candy....

Elizabeth made chocolate cupcakes with peppermint cream cheese icing...YUM!!!

Ruth Ella couldn't eat any of the goodies but wanted to be part of the fun :)

The boys getting their sugar fix...

Rozalin (my niece) and William loading their cookies up with sprinkles.

James trying to make sure his cookie has plenty of red icing.

Rebekah is helping Rozalin with the can of icing.

Wesley as always happy to just be right in the center of the fun.

Next the girls set up a table so the children could paint an ceramic ornament.

Each ornament came out so cute, reflecting each child.

Wesley thought he did a very nice job painting his heart ornament.

We displayed all of our children's ornaments on the tree in our kitchen.

After the goodies were eaten and the ornaments were painted Elizabeth read The Legend of the Candy Cane, and then Amanda took them to watch the video. This was a very nice way to start off our celebration of Jesus birth.

Little Ruth Ella couldn't eat the candy but she was one :-) I love her outfit!

I think I'll borrow this idea for next year. It looked like such fun. I love your table cloths~

I enjoyed the pictures from both celebrations but the ones from the Candy Cane party were especially fun. I love the way you all just hold Ruth Ella by herself in a picture - - - sort of like she's floating in air!
