Christmas Ornaments

We had a Christmas ornament party! Several friends brought their kids and a homemade ornament project for all the kids to make. There ended up being 14 kids, 6 adults, 6 ornaments and a bunch of craziness!

We've been getting ready for the cold season. It's kinda hard to believe winter is just now starting. =oP We've gotten snow and ice over the past couple of weeks and it's only just beginning. To keep busy and entertain the troops, we decided to do a snowflake project. I think Joe and I had more fun than the kids! Glitter and paper were strewn across the table (and floor), but it was worth it!
If you can't remember how to make these, don't feel took us a couple of tries before our snowflakes started looking less like blocks of paper with holes. Here's a snowflake tutorial (that I should have looked up before we started!)

Snow Day

"It snowed!", I yelled..peeking out the window. Judah was immediately stoked! He's been waiting for the snow to come..his plan was for it to snow and then mommy would make hot chocolate and cookies. Although I hadn't prepared for snow this early, we did manage to bake the cookies later that night. We did however get out there and built a couple of snowmen. Perfect snow for snowmen this time! Addie had a ton of fun too. We threw snowballs at each other and Addie would try, several times I saw her giving a snowball to daddy instead. Judah was all about the snowball fight!
Fortunately it was on a day daddy was home, so we were able to tag team it with Adam. It was a lot of fun though! Judah's snowsuit arrived in the mail a little late, but hopefully it'll snow again and maybe we can try our hand at sledding. =o)
