Christmas Photos

I took a few Christmas photos of the kids this past week. Well, actually I took a LOT but only a few turned out to be anything I would consider. I love certain elements of each of these but can not decide on one in particular to use for our Christmas cards. I need help... so, I am asking you guys to make the decision... if you read this blog you are entitled ,no, obligated to give an opinion! So, let me know which one you like best:-)...

By the way, it was about 27 degrees outside this particular day! They did fabulously, though we did have to take a few breaks to thaw out:-).

Popcorn Strings

Our kids LOVE to do crafty things... I believe they must have acquired this gift from their Mimi or their father since I have not a crafty bone in my entire being:-).  Perhaps I am exaggerating a bit :-). Still, I find it amazing that they love to make things the way that they do... they LOVE it!

So, to decorate the tree they way they like to (with homemade crafty things, remember?) we make popcorn strings. It is a TON of fun... and usually a bit messy as well:-). These two things tend to make the perfect combination for a really nice craft!






FUN TIMES!! ... Next time we'll need to remember to put them a little higher on the tree so that Judah doesn't eat them when he wakes up from his nap :-).

~Next up are the photos of the snow flakes they cut out of paper and hung in the windows... I know, crafty right? See I told you:-).
