Home made Christmas.

What are some of the things you do for Christmas? I am going to start doing some craft and cooking activities with Tom and Amelia for Christmas soon. These are what we have planned so far:

Cooking:

White Christmas.
Rum balls.
Apricot Balls.
Coconut ice.
Christmas pudding.
Christmas cake.

Craft:

Making Christmas decorations. Paper links are at the top of the list. I think we will also make an advent calender.

I have thought about making a nativity scene but just think it may be too big a project and I haven't been able to find anything online that I feel really confident making.

I will sew a new outfit for the girls and our younger boys. I will probably buy something for our two older boys who don't really appreciate home sewn outfits.

Tom and Amelia have a couple of projects they want to sew. Tom is keen to do a Christmas stocking for the baby even though he won't be here at Christmas. I think it is because he knows how simple it is and I hope he doesn't expect it to be full of gifts.

So what plans do you have?

Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research.
