|Here is our Christmas Tree. Each day the kids have been writing how to say Merry Christmas from the Country of the day on their ornament.|
|Here are the ornaments we made when visiting America.|
|Apple Cinnamon Ornaments|
Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments
3 cups cinnamon
2 cups applesauce
1/2 cup glue.You may need to add a little water to this: it needs to be the consistency of thick cookie dough. Have the children pound out to 1/4 inch thick and use cookie cutters. If you do not have time to let them dry naturally you can stick them in the oven at 275 for 45 minutes x 3. Flip after each 45 minutes. I always do it in conjunction with math lessons on measurement. Makes 21 ornaments with a little left over.
|Here are how our Poinsettias turned out for Mexico!|

We have 5 days of school left. Everyone's so excited for Christmas here, especially since we received snow in the NM desert. Normally we are lucky to see a couple of inches a year. We got about 4-5 inches and still have some on the ground in the shady areas.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
