Christmas Continues for Edith
Christmas has continued well into January in this household. In just the past week, Edith and I have "completed" two of her Christmas presents.
The first was perhaps my easiest, most brilliant idea for a present -- dessert mixes with decorating supplies. Edith and I made cupcakes last week, and she decorated the results with frosting, gel and sprinkles in two batches. She's having a blast, and we all get cupcakes. Win-win.
Another of her presents was a ticket to see a 50-minute production of Rapunzel by the local children's theater. The show was made for kids her age and slightly older, with lots of audience participation. We read the fairy tale a few times before the show, so she was well aware of "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!" She wasn't enthralled by it as much as her trip to the movie theater a few months ago, but it's fun to introduce her to new experiences.
Plus afterward we went to North Market, a couple of blocks away, and got small piece of chocolate rugelach before heading home. Again, win-win.
