Mama-Made Ornaments: The Next Generation

This past weekend was a busy one.  For the first time ever, I hosted "Christmas" at my house (Christmas is only in quotations because as you all know, Christmas Day hasn't happened yet this year).  Because I live in a different state from the rest of my family, it meant more than one nice meal and some family togetherness for the evening.  It was a whole weekend with a full house, lots of helpers in the kitchen, super easy Christmas cookies and crafts, secret treats (shh . . . don't tell anyone, Leebee) and Little Miss in HEAVEN as her 2 favorite girls in the world (her cousins) were here to visit for 4 WHOLE DAYS!!

She's still talking about how sad she is that they had to leave.

Anyway, all that to say that we had some fun opening gifts together . . .mostly the gift-giving was from the older generation to the little kids . . . but that doesn't mean my mom didn't sneak in a little mama-made goodness to add to our ornament collections.

These two pieces are now hanging out on my tree.  And I couldn't be happier.

Thanks, Mom.  :)

Now . . . if only I could pin down what I want to make for my own kids, we'll be all set.  :P

Anyone else doing any early celebrating?  Or ornament making?
