The Night Before Christmas

The Night Before Christmas was a great finale to our Christmas Countdown. 
We loved hearing this classic poem and appreciated the charming illustrations by Jan Brett. And then, we celebrated with a party! Our candy canes grew to an edible length. (We wondered if they'd continue to grow if we hadn't pulled them up:)

Our plan was to use them for stirring hot chocolate but after seeing the snow in which the candy canes grew, we decided on snow cones instead. 
We added ice to the snow cone machine.
Once it was the right consistency, we added the flavoring of our choice.
They were a great addition to our candy cane cookies. Let's get this party started!
Merry Christmas to all!
