We had a very quiet, non-eventful Three King’s Day last week. Boy2001 had to go to school but we were blessed with a snow day the next day!!
We watched Dora the Explorer: Dora Celebrates Three Kings Day a few hundred times on the DVR to appease girl2006 and all was right with the world. I was listening but didn’t get to sit down and watch it but the kids LOVED it so I can recommend it heartily to and Dora fans.
I didn’t bake the traditional cake with something hidden inside for Three Kings Day. The person who gets the something special is super happy and gets special priviledges all day. This is something that will fall into the maybe next year category.
In other news, I think I’m pretty much crafted out at this point. We spent all day Sunday making soap balls and sculptures. I need to get pics on here, they were so cute, I wish I’d taken video but there’s that line where you don’t want to break the moment and point a camera in a kid’s face… sigh.
I got stuck with the hardest job, grating the soap, my hands still hurt. Since the kids loved it I’m sure I’ll be at it again real soon. While you’re waiting, check out our Gingerbread Village 2008. We made it on Christmas Day which is going to be a tradition, it took 6 hours. It was sooo much fun. Next year we’ll each get our own trays so that everyone gets an equal chance to decorate. What a great way to use up all the leftover Halloween candy I don’t want the kids to eat!! I’ll have to get the video on youtube to put it here.
