Chocolate Santas

Afternoon everyone. I hope you are all well. I am fine just very cold. I hate the cold, lol! I haven't done very much today. A bit of housework this morning and a then a bit of blogging. Then at lunchtime Wee Steven wanted to go to McDonalds for lunch we went. It wasn't long before I was wishing that I had stayed at home. First, he fell off the chair and landed right on his forehead on the tiled floor. Luckily it wasn't too bad...just a bump then, when we were leaving, Steven rushed forward and said 'I'll helkp you with the door' and grabbed hold of the the exact same time as a McDoinalds employee grabbed it from the outside and yanked it open...pulling Wee Steven forwards and smashing face first into the handle of the other door! Like I said...we should have stayed at home!

Anyway, enough of our antics for today. This one is for six challenges:

1.) ABC- H is for Hidden
2.) Secret Crafter - Four Seasons
3.) One Stop Craft - Gifts - Bags or Images
4.) Allsorts - Something For a Child
5.) A Spoonful of Sugar - Baby's First Christmas / Preschooler
6.) Tuesday Taggers - Colours (Red,Green&Gold)

Last Christmas, the kids gave me a wee teapot and a tin of tea. So, I have covered the tin with paper inside and out and have added some ribbon with stars on it round the lid and stuck a picture of St Nik in the centre of the top. I have filled the tin with chocolate santas from M&S as this is Wee Steven's favourite at the moment, lol!

Hope you like it. I think he will be quite pleased with it although I don't expect it to last long when he gets his hands on it, lol!
Thanks for taking the time to look
