During this month my oldest daughter became a teenager in years. She has been there mentally and attitude-wise for a long time. I always let them pick special things for their birthdays. She wanted to make cream cheese mints to share at school on her birthday. So we pulled out the supplies (some have gone missing which was sad to not have all the molds any more because we wanted to make roses). Since her birthday is in December, the Christmas month, she wanted to make Santa instead.
I have made more progress on the snow queen. I am now thinking up other uses for this pattern; watch for them in the future.
