Christmas is in the Air


Our typical tradition in my house would mean that our tree was up and donned with Christmas cheer and be well on our way to filling our house with warm goodies and rich smells. I am afraid we are a little behind this year, but do not fear. It might be another week before I can get the tree up, but we are trying something new this year.

Last year we made an ornament for our tree as one of our wholesome (no cost) activities for the holidays. This year I am expanding that idea. Everyday after school work is done, we are breaking out our ornament project for the day for everyday till Christmas. Each day we will add an ornament made by the kids to our bare tree. By Christmas time we should have a spectacle of ornamentation that would make even the biggest Grinch shake in his boots.

Besides what a fun keepsake that they can have at the end of this Christmas season for years to come and hopefully make for a memorable holiday. Each post in December will feature our ornament creation feel free to join in!
