Quadruple chocolate loaves,
And tried beads... My favorite bead for small hatchlings. Especially, clumsy ones.
This boy made a festive spy ring.
It is still a wreath, too, Mama!
This lady was delighted with all the pretty.
And this one reluctantly shared.
I am using two recipes this year.
My favorite has always been Nigella's port and cranberry recipe.
But I have fallen completely for the Merry Gin'mas recipe over here. I want to make another batch with port, and another with Brandy, and another whiskey, and another port.
Honestly, I could just eat the lot with a spoon!

No need to encourage boys to participate with the addition of small motors.
This hatchling was sold on the idea, the moment she spotted glitter horns.
Peel and stick foam has to be one of my favorite craft products.
The results are easy and satisfying to small fingers.

It is hard to be a hatchling.
Days start early.
Sometimes, at just 4am.
And days are long...
So very long, if you do wish to nap.
And nights are busy, extra busy for this hatchling, with a drainage bag that leaked, a pump that beeped, and cough that went on and on.
So, now she sleeps.
And bedtime is still two hours away.
An exercise in wish fulfilment, writing "I want letters..."
Hatchling number 6 wants a glitter unicorn and world domination.
The older hatchlings want a baby hatchling.
And an assortment of things from telekinesis to extinct animals.
Good luck Santa, you have your work cut of for you!
