We had five (count 'em -- FIVE) days at home with Cooper over thanksgiving break.  Christmas decorations only took 3.5 hours.  So we busted out the craft projects.

First up, candy canes out of pipe cleaners:

Wreaths out of pipe cleaners:

Egads -- glitter art!

Alan's a show-off:

We made critters out of modeling clay:

We played with new tinker toys:

Cooper spent quite a bit of time working on a pirate ship project:

I made a paper chain to count down the days until Christmas while Coop continued work on the pirate ship:

At last, a new pirate ship ornament for the tree:

Whew.  Sadly, all of these projects only took up about 10 hours total.  Needless to say, several of us were glad to go back to school on Monday!
