We always get together on the holidays, and this year we wanted to do something a little different, we focused more on the kids...which was such a good idea! Thanks to Toa and Kiki's wonderful ideas, the kids had a blast, and made tons of good memories. Toa baked some sugar cookies shaped like jingle bells and I mixed several different colors of frosting. While we were preparing the cookies, Kiki and Siosiana split the kids into groups and decorated gingerbread houses. It was so fun to see all the kids being so creative. After the houses were done, they all got a couples cookies and butter knives and decorated their own cookies. I think little Siope was the funniest because he kind of just kept the green frosting to himself and was eating it out of the bowl instead of decorating his cookie...all the kids had so much fun and I got some good pictures of the Fangupo kids!!!
"Begin today and write in it your goings and comings, your deepest thoughts, your achievements and your failures, your associations and your triumphs, your impressions and your testimonies. I promise you that if you will keep your journals and records, they will indeed be a source of great inspiration to you, each other, your children, your grand-children and others throughout the generations. Remember, the Savior chastised those who failed to record important events." --President Spencer W. Kimball
