We bought a box of fudge-y brownie mix, and made them according to the directions on the box. The kids all decided what they wanted to put on the brownies, and after the brownies cooled completely they took turns piping on their ideas. Cara started with the star, Caleb drew the angel (the one to the left of the star - for the picture further down that shows two angels), I piped the outline of the stable for them, and Carissa drew Baby Jesus in the manger. Everyone added one more thing to the brownies; Cara drew Mary, Caleb drew Joseph, and Carissa drew the camel sticking its head in from outside. :) I wrote 'Happy Birthday, Jesus' on the front side of the brownies.
Ronnie came home while we were finishing up, and the kids wanted him to contribute to the creation also. So, he drew the angel to the right of the star [I thought I got some close-up pictures of the brownies after Ronnie drew the angel, but they are nowhere to be found. So there is just a not-so-great-quality-picture-that-was-taken-from-far-away below. :( ]
The kids (and Ronnie and me) really enjoyed getting to make these brownies, and I loved watching them and their creativity while they worked on them. :) Oh, and they were yummy, too! :)
