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.

Justice liked the dough the best. Which was fine with me. It's much less messy than the paint. So I let him have a good time.

Chubby hands hard at work.
Brooklyn trying really hard not to smile.

After we finished our decorating, I had some beans and rice for lunch. This is typical Portuguese food.
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!
Have a great week!
