12th Day of Advent
17 Days ’til Christmas
It’s a Short Week at School.
Let’s Celebrate in Style.
This Afternoon, We’ll Gather
Christmas Candies in a Pile,
And We’ll Chop them,
and We’ll Drop Them
into Buckets of Ice Cream
With Marshmallows, Chocolate Sauce,
Cherries, Sprinkles, Candy Floss.
You Can Build, Dears, Whatever You Dream….
This morning, I downloaded the only picture of Santa eating ice cream that I could find on the internet. I used the “doodle” and “text” features on http://www.picnik.com to blot out the existing text on the image and to add my own writing.
Here’s how today’s insert looks:
And here’s how the Advent Shadowbox looks from afar:
It’s going to be a sweet afternoon!
I’m looking forward to chopped oreo-style peppermint-cream-filled cookies and bits of peppermint bark piled on top of vanilla and chocolate swirl ice cream!
