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).
