|Snack break from painting.|
Since it is a five hour session, we provide healthy snacks and a spaghetti dinner. Yours truly successfully burned the spaghetti (how does one do that standing right there?). Oh well, kids seemed to be able to choke it down quite heartily anyway.

|The painting/decoupage project partially done (imagine glitter and bows as well)|
|Spaghetti lunch and gossip session!|
|Sand Art Brownie jars, decorated and ready to gift.|
|Chinese auction round the mini tree.|
To end the day off, the Missus had a Chinese auction of Christmas presents. There was some fast furious stealing and trading, but I think everyone ended up with something they liked. And before you knew it, there were the parents at the door, waiting to trundle kiddies and projects home. All in all it was another very successful venture. The children have a keepsake wallhanging, a culinary gift to give to Grandma, and a cookie wreath to eat when they got home (which I'm certain they did). Oh yes, and they also had a lot a fun and hopefully a few happy memories to take with them.
