Christmas treat boxes!

Seeing as it is December I think it is safe to mention the C word! ;)  I just love Christmas and could happily have it a couple of times a year!  We are having loads of lovely Christmas things over on the Bo Bunny blog this month!

My first contribution to the Christmas projects were these cute little treat boxes.  I found these little take away boxes at The Works for only 99p for 5 so of course I had to buy them to decorate!  I used the beautiful Winter Joy range for these as they match my tree colours beautifully and I was planning on hanging these on the tree with some treats inside for the boys.

Just sharing some photos from the last couple of days!  The first one is of Kieran before his young voices concert yesterday.  We couldn't get him into school because we were snowed in so him and Paul had to walk and then catch a bus to the venue so he could take part.  Paul also went to the concert and they both said it was totally awesome!  Having watched a clip online for it I can just imaging how fab it must be, it is 10 000 children all singing together with whatever well known singers they can get.  Paul actually phoned me from the arena so I could hear and 10 000 kids singing together is very loud but totally amazing, I even got goosebumps over the phone!  It was such an amazing experience for Kieran and Paul is such a wonderful father to have put in all that effort to make sure he could take part even when we were snowed in.  They left at about 12pm and Paul then dropped him off at the arena with his teachers and then walked around in the freezing cold till 6pm when he could go into the arena.  They only got home after 11pm, after walking from the bus stop in the middle of a blizzard!  I think they would both do it again in a heart beat though! :)

These next photos are of Christopher yesterday when we went out sledding while Paul and Kieran were out.

That was the snow yesterday and it snowed most of the night and all day today and is currently snowing at the moment!  Needless to say as we live on a big hill and the only way out of our area is up or down a very steep  hill.  We did try yesterday but the car was sliding all over the place and me and the kids got out and walked back home and Paul had to try and get the car back.  We were all snowed in again today and by the looks of things it will be the same tomorrow so that will be the 3rd day the kids are off school!  The scary thing though is if this is what started in November, what is the next 3 months going to be like!

Will be back tomorrow or the next day with another Christmas project :)
