Last year we used our 3D printer to create scenery and props. I think my favorite props were the tiny cork pet reindeer.
I loved the little Elf House in Day 15. In fact, it is still on display on my cabinet!
Sometimes the pins I find on Pinterest work out well, other times…not so much. But the streamer Christmas tree was a huge success!
We are getting closer and closer to the big day! I think the boys and I will put our Christmas tree up today and start enjoying the twinkling lights.
Ah the gumdrop sink and yarn-wrapped elves! I have a few stories this year that will take some time to set up…but this gum drop sink took a VERY long time. Totally worth it though!
Incorporating the boys’ love of, or obsession with, Minecraft with my obession with, or love of, chocolate was a lot of fun in these next two stories.
Last year’s Day 2 was one of my favorite to set up. I asked Ray to help me with this one and we both couldn’t stop laughing.
“I can’t believe we are doing this,” I chuckled.
“I can,” he replied.
Day 3 was a lot of fun too. We were dialing in our family Christmas gift, a 3D printer, and printing a few really cool trees for the candy forest.
The Mischief Makers are coming! In case you missed last year’s shenanigans, or you just want to get into the spirit early, I’ll be posting last year’s stories as a lead up to the big day!
I have a blast writing these stories and setting the scene every year, but adding the audio last year made it especially fun!
We’ll start with two stories today. The Prologue and Day 1 from last year.
