Sadly, the light string on the top half of the Christmas tree went out last night, so the ole' gal (which I usually like to keep up until at least New Year's Day) will probably be coming down tonight. :(
I don't know if this is an "upside", but it sure got my butt motivated this afternoon to actually sit down and whip out the kids' Christmas ornaments for this year. I know . . . late much? I blame it on the pregnancy sleepies and the fact that I churned out a boat-load of Jesse Tree ornaments over the last few months.
I went pretty simple and off the cuff . . . no patterns, just threw around some ideas with Little Miss. She made the ultimate decisions on what to make and which colors to use. I'm the one that decided to add some bits of bling just to make it a little less plain:

|Heart Ornament for Little Miss 2011|
P.S. I know and fully acknowledge that these photos are terrible. It's nearly impossible to take good non-flash photos indoors this time of year.
