I feel like my need to decorate sometimes makes me lose out on things that are memories. All the things the kids made in school have never ended up on our tree..because they didn't "go". The kids thru the years have told their teachers "my Mom won't put this on the tree"--how embarassing. The kids seem alright with it though because they know I am a perfectionist. They forgive me. So I have decided to try to start making memorable ornaments that do go.
This one I recently made for Janae because she is so in love with her pups and I know she wants to remember their first Christmas.
I found this little frame at Goodwill--it was brown with a little fake pinecone attached. It wasn't too cute then, but it is so Janae now!
Then to my surprise in Gage's backpack was wrapped up a little ornament that he "made" with help from his assistant, and it looks so lovely on my tree and I love seeing Gage's little smiling face. I will admit, it had a red ribbon on it that I had to change to white..but otherwise..perfect!
I feel like I am not blogging hardly at all lately--and either is anyone else! I guess we can all understand why...but since I am a new blogger, does this happen every year? I am anxious to get back to regular blogging after the holidays are over. I am actually beginning to miss posts about chalk paint! haha
I hope everyone is having really happy holidays!
