You Can't Catch Me....

For a while now, Sienna has been talking about making gingerbread people. So today the two of us mixed up a batch of dough, and she patiently waited while it rested in the fridge for 1/2 an hour. Then she got busy cutting out the people. 

And sticking eyes on some. Others she left blank, to put 'icing eyes' on.

Ten minutes in the oven, a few minutes to cool, and it was time to get decorating. Miraculously, some extra helpers appeared.

(Kyla made this Santa one. She's always so creative and precise in her ideas.)

They were declared way better than shop brought ones. Tasty and fun.

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
