Usually this is where I say Happy Scrap Friday! But today, I'm feeling a little merry, and before I wake up my girlies to help me bake, I thought I'd share some ornaments I made for the kids. Every year, we get them a dated Hallmark ornament, but this year, the teeniest of ornaments are ridiculously expensive, so dh suggested that a handmade ornament would be so much more meaningful anyway. Brilliant! Why didn't "I" think of that? LOL So I did. I personalized them to some extent, but they are all dated.

Peyton's favorite color is blue. This week.

Caitlyn is into the vintage look. This week.

Ethan got engaged last month. I don't think it's as glimmery in the photo as it is in real life. Lots of gold glitter.

I had Megan's left to do by the time she came home from college for Thanksgiving, so she picked out her paper and "supervised" me. LOL

Another tradition of ours is that I have the kids put their handprints on the tree skirt and date it. Here is Megan putting it under the tree this year. :-)

Well, I'm off to bake some cranberry bread with the girls. Enjoy your merry moments this weekend! :-)
