Ice Wreath





I am so pleased to say we had a good day today, oh I am. I promise I can't tell you the same thing about yesterday because we were all cranky, grump, grouchy… I got up determined to make today a better day, mostly because I don't think I could take another bad mood day without exploding.
Eggs benedict for breakfast, pot roast sandwiches for lunch, then my husband put the little lady down for a nap and the little man and I went to a Christmas fair, full of handmade vendors, crafts for kids, Santa, music, got to meet a few friends, just had a good time. 
After we got home we put up the ice wreath we worked on this morning - you can see the pictures I took. We used a bundt pan, I first sprayed it with cooking oil spray, put some water in the bottom of the pan and put it in the freezer to make the first layer of ice, at the same time I made some colored ice (I used a fish shaped ice tray I had). When both became ice, we added the colored fish to the bundt pan and covered it with cooooooold water and put it back in the freezer. Once it got all frozen, we tied a ribbon and brought our wreath outside. I am curious to see how long it will last. ;)
In the afternoon I watched "Brave" with the kids while my husband and his dad watched the football game, then we all had a nice dinner together. Good day.
