Seth's MDO Christmas Party

Yesterday, Seth's MDO class had a Christmas party! They wore their pajamas and decorated gingerbread men and then watched a Christmas movie! I teach the class next door to Seth's so I am never able to go to his parties :( but Evan is always sure to be there! :) Seth gets SO excited when Daddy comes to MDO!

Also, I made these gifts for Seth's MDO teachers... I saw the marshmallows on Pinterest and found the cute little containers at Walmart!

The cans are filled with Dark Chocolate Candy Cane Marshmallows (to go in hot chocolate) and they are so easy to make... you just melt dark chocolate (I used semi-sweet chocolate chips), dip the marshmallows in the chocolate and then roll them in crushed candy cane, place in a wax paper lined dish and allow them to cool in the refrigerator until the chocolate sets. After the chocolate sets, store them in an airtight container. I wrote, "Just add hot chocolate!" on the lid to help his teachers know the intended use of the marshmallows!

Seth was so cute taking his gifts to his teachers! He was so proud of them! haha

Hopefully, I'll get caught up enough to share a few of our Christmas decorations and traditions sometime next week! Right now, I'm just trying to get our Christmas cards in the mail sometime BEFORE Christmas! haha But hey, if I don't, who doesn't like a nice Christmas surprise just when you thought the fun was over? :)

Have a GREAT weekend!
