If you saw my last blog post, you read that my entire family made snowflakes on Christmas Eve this year. Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, adults and kids included! We were having so much fun sitting around the table cutting out our amazing creations. There was even some friendly competition involved, and a little teasing for the “not so creative” snowflakes. As I was enjoying the moment, I paused to really take it all in! I mean, SERIOUSLY! How many families sit around the dining table cutting out snowflakes and laughing on Christmas Eve?!?! It was an ALL FUN AND NO STRESS, good time at my house! I looked at the mound of paper snowflakes that was accumulating on the table and thought, “What in the world am I going to do with ALL THESE SNOWFLAKES???” I don’t want to toss them in the garbage…no way! They are to cool for that! Then it hit me:
We can go “FLAKE” my neighbors!!!!
…and that’s exactly what we did! We bundled up in our warm coats and tried to be as stealth as we could, putting snowflakes in 3 of my neighbors yards. We hung them in the trees, on their cars, and even dropped them on the lawn and walk ways. We left a note on the front porch that said:
“You’ve been FLAKED”
It was a Christmas Eve to remember! My neighbors woke up to a Christmas morning surprise from my family! Snowflakes in their yard…in California!
“Wonder what I will come up with next”…
