On day 16 the Christmas Angel said "make a christmas paper chain". She forgot to take into account that Mama had her Christmas party. What with dinner, babysitter preparations and getting ready for the party, there was little time left to complete our task.
On day 17 the littlies rushed down the stairs to discover empty pockets. Apparently the Christmas angel doesn't leave a message unless previous crafts are completed. Late on Friday night, exhausted and seedy from the night before, we got our paperchain done.
