25 Days of Christmas - Day 3

Tonight for our 25 Days of Christmas project, we made homemade ornaments. {Thanks to Stacy for giving me the leftover mix.} It started out with just Ava and I making ornaments as Bradley took pictures. He didn't want to make ornaments, just take the pictures. As you can see from the pictures, it was so much fun he couldn't resist. Just one more reason why I love this man; he can jump in, act like a kid, and just make things so much more fun. Ava seemed to enjoy making the ornaments, though I think she enjoyed getting to stand on the step ladder and trying to eat oranges much more. She liked getting messy. She also decided to take a taste of an orange peel (wish I had caught that expression on film) and decided to lick the flour off the counter. It was just so much fun. They are now baked and hardened and the next step: Finger Paints! Can't wait to see Ava paint these little things. We are in for a mess!

Thanks to all who have been stopping in to visit the blog. We have had over 4,000 visitors since I began the blog. Also a big thanks to all who have left comments lately. Bradley and I love reading what you have to say! I just hope you are enjoying your holiday season as much as we are! Love to all!

    Man..........These pictures bring back so many memories! We didn't make dough ornaments, but we made dozens and dozens of Christmas cookies every year. It was always lots of fun, and the kids liked getting their hands in the dough, etc., just like Ava does! Like they say....The apple doesn't fall far from the tree! :)

    Your family is making great memories that will probably be passed down through generations to come. Keep taking lots and lots of pictures. They'll mean oh, so much to Ava as she gets older.

    You two knotheads are turning out to be terrific parents!! ha
