Let the holidays begin!

Kember has been pestering me since Halloween to decorate. I don't have any Halloween decorations (and it isn't my favorite holiday to decorate for since a lot of decorations tend to be on the disgusting side) or Thanksgiving decorations. However, I do have a few Christmas ones, so the day after Thanksgiving we pulled out my box of decorations. After doing what I had I decided to let the kids have fun decorating their own spaces. So, my goal this month is to make lots of stuff with the kids that they can decorate with. We will have a tree downstairs that will be theirs to decorate, and we'll make stuff for their rooms and walls and stuff. So today we started by making handprint wreaths. It was messy, but it was fun to do. Especially since I was cranky for most of the day...it was fun to take a time out and just get messy with the kids. Here are their creations.They were really excited to hang them on their door (don't let Caden's face fool you...he had a lot of fun, he just didn't like that I told him to smile normal instead of a really cheesy grin).

I love that idea! I'm going to have to steal it. Oh, and we aren't going to be up there on the 1st. I don't know what I was thinking. So call me and we can schedule a time to for me to come up. Preferably a weekend, so we have daylight. Or I guess Braden & I could come up when Joey's in school. Anyway, call me. :) Or email. Or facebook. Whatever. :)

Cute! How did you come up with that idea and why aren't the kids covered head to foot in green paint?

Way to go on doing a project with the kiddos.

Cole looks so cute in a hat. Does he keep them on pretty well?

You are a super mom. Projects with 3 kids and new baby....I'm envious of your efforts. We wait until the boys are sleeping and then Maeli and I do crafts. This time of year always makes me think of Dan singing the Hawaiian Christmas song to Maeli. Milee is so super cute. I think she looks like Caden.
