Nutcracker
Grandpa and Grandma treated the girls to a night out to see the nutcracker at the NAC.  To say that Elizabeth was excited would be an understatement.  Her review:  Grandpa promised that there would be a bear and there was!  The bear was the best part.

St Nicholas

Elizabeth and Matthew received matching pjs. It was pyjama day at school and she REALLY wanted to change into her new "footies" (but we convinced her to wear the two piece instead).

 

Matthew immediately took a chomp out of his orange. Then he tried eating his grapes. Then he smashed his chocolate St Nicholas into bite sized pieces which he stuffed into his mouth, small bits of foil and all.

 

Mommy and Daddy were big meanies and took everything away.

 

Auntie Janice made gluten free Speculaas. It was super yummy. Mommy made almond free mock marzipan, which was not bad, except that adding the colouring changed the texture and it wouldn't hold its shape anymore. I guess we'll have to try again next year.

 

In the evening Mommy went to Come Sing Messiah and had a lovely time.

Un oeil poché
Elizabeth came home from school today with a black eye! Apparently her good friend Adrienne accidentally whacked her with a puzzle piece. I didn't think to take a picture in the evening but it was already fading by the next morning after some ice. We were a little surprised that none of the teachers even noticed; usually Elizabeth demands ice and/or band aids for the most minor of injuries.

Decorating

The most notable part of our annual Christmas tree decorating this year was that Elizabeth read the instructions to us all by herself. She just had to read which colours to put into which slots, but YAY for reading!

 

Matthew hasn't knocked over the tree yet but we did not put most of the fragile ornaments on this year. Just in case...

O Christmas Tree

We made Christmas cones for dessert to start off Advent. Technically, this is an idea that I saw on Pinterest that doesn't work in real life nearly as well as advertised. But Elizabeth thinks it's a "keeper" of a recipe and they are tasty so we'll keep making them...
