The big activity for our little Solstice Celebration was stringing popcorn, cranberries, and cheerios to put outside for the birds and squirrels. We talked about how the animals need extra help during the cold winter months, so we did our part to help. I thought this activity would be difficult for Cooper, but he surprised me once again. He was a natural using a needle and thread and took right to it. He also liked discussing all the different patterns we were making.

No celebration is complete without a nice meal for dinner.
Erik is officially on vacation today through Christmas. Hurray!!!
