Today Portugal celebrated the immaculate conception. No school for the kids (maybe not tomorrow either if the teachers have mama fits again) So we invited a few neighborhood kids over to decorate Christmas ornaments with us. They were so easy. Only three ingredients, roll out the dough, cut, microwave for 4 minutes and paint! Waahhlllaaaaa…..Decorating made simple! I love it! Here are a few pictures. And here is the link if you’d like the recipe.
And get this. While we were working away at the table Michael noticed on the newspaper (that I had bought only to cover the table with, not read) that a group of blind men call The Blind Boys of Alabama were coming to a theater near us to sing traditional Gospel Christmas music. Wow! Talk about getting a little taste of a southern, Alabama Christmas….black men singing christmas music. Can’t miss that one!
