We were much obliged to the teachers for striking on Thursday, thereby giving me a bonus day at home with my Podlings. Lily spent most of the day at a friends house, so that left me at home with Emma and the boys. Tom generally entertains himself and Alex still naps a lot in the daytime, so Emma and I were able to indulge in a little kitchen fun. She has been wanting to make gingerbread men for ages, so we finally got around to that and she had tremendous fun cutting out various shapes and stamping faces on them. We even made some gingerbread biscuits in the shape of some of the characters that Tom has invented, much to his delight!
In the afternoon we made some glittery play dough and Emma had tremendous fun playing with it. We all had a lovely day!
