Josiah and Norah are at a fun age for messy play. Crafts aren’t quite crafty, yet. Their “crafts” are more of an exploration of color and texture and the products are a little-kid kind of beautiful. As we prepare for another Christmas in Rwanda, we’ve had some special moments together – so far we’ve done some baking and decorating cookies, finger painting a “Christmas tree,” and lots of coloring and cutting. We’ve also shared some lovely mornings with friends. In a few of the pictures below Josiah, Norah and I are decorating cookies with Katie and her kids who are new, dear friends. We have another big batch of cookies to make this afternoon for some special guests coming to visit for a Christmas meal. I can only hope they turn out as lovely as the first batch!
