On the first day of Christmas..... (photo heavy)

Can you believe that it is already December? OMG! Where did this year go?  Earlier this week the boys and I started decorating our house for Christmas. Usually our tree is covered in gold and silver ornaments, but this year I thought it would be more fun for the boys to make our decorations together and have more of a handmade kids tree. The boys are at the most wonderful age :o)

We started off on Monday with a large packet of Fimo, some cookie cutters and some embossing folders.

Jarred in particular had a ball playing with the Fimo. We now have some cute little white Christmas trees, Gingerbread men and Bells.


Something else I've been meaning to do for a little while is to make some gingham decorations.

Oops - my little birdie started off with TWO legs, lol.... Booooyyysss!!!!

And then came the extra fun part - putting the tree up! We had a terrific morning, the boys were enthralled.

And finally, the finished tree (I redistributed some of the decorations when they weren't looking hehehe) and a couple of very excited little boys.

Oh - and every event has to end with the boys wrestling. Gosh they're funny little guys. 

So that was the start of our week :o) It was loads of fun and I can't wait to do more! Christmas is for the kids after all.

Thanks for stopping by to visit :o)
