Spreading Christmas Cheer

Today I invited one of my ESL students to my house to make some Christmas treats.  Risa was my very 1st student over a year ago and she has come to see me almost every single Saturday since.  She is definitely my most consistent student and it shows.  Her English has improved immensely!  Today was all about having fun and just enjoying each others company, no text book involved.  I'm incredibly proud that we have gotten to the point where that is possible.

We started out by making a Christmas tree pizza
 I used a small cookie cutter to cut star shape pepperoni and a bell pepper star for the top.  It's a little lopsided but it still tasted DELICIOUS!

While the pizza cooked, we decorated cookies and brownies.

We made melted snowmen cookies that I originally saw on PINTEREST

I love this guy, we decided he was all dressed up for a night on the town but must have left early while the sun was still out =}

and I used a cookie cutter to cut brownies into tree shapes

We made a huge mess but had a great time so it was worth it!

I look REALLY tired, but here we are with some of our snowmen!

She's the cutest

We already have plans to make a gingerbread house & men next year!  Thanks for the great memories Risa!
