Hopefully this christmas

One thing that I wanna do is make Stringed Popcorn and place it on the Christmas Tree (and hope the ants dont get to eat)So I decided to Bing "stringing popcorn" and I found this:

How to String Popcorn on a Christmas Tree

Nothing smells as good as freshly popped popcorn. Once it starts popping the aroma fills the air, and all you want to do is eat it all. Allow it to cool, and instead of eating it, string them for your Christmas tree. This project may take a little time, but it is well worth the effort. Children will delight in helping string the popcorn (as well as eating it) so pop plenty--some for the tree, and some for the decorating team.

Steps1 Make some popcorn with any method you prefer. At least one large size bowl is needed, but that will depend on the size of your tree. Be sure to let the popcorn cool before you continue on to the next step.

2Thread the needle, but do not cut the thread from the spool. It will take a lot of thread for the popcorn garland to cover an entire tree.

3Start stringing one popcorn at a time by inserting the tip of the needle into the center of each piece. Keep sliding it further down on the thread making room for more popcorn. It's best to slide the popcorn to the end of the thread to prevent knots. Once you feel that you have enough garland for the size of your tree tie off the end of the thread by looping the thread, pulling tightly, and going under the loops a few times. Make sure that it is well-secured, so that popcorn won't fall off, and then gently cut the thread.

4 Carefully hang the garland onto your Christmas tree.

And hopefully the finally would look something like this:
And Me and my sister are organizing Christmas dinner!!! So we will keep you posted on the different dishes.
