In Keeping with Tradition.....

On Thanksgiving Day, we always take a few minutes to do our "Christmas Craft" with the family. It's usually an ornament that can be added to the tree. We have done them from all ends of the creativity scale. Never the less..... it's so special to look at them from year to year and think about those sweet times together.

So here are a few shots from yesterday.......






And the last two pics here are crafts done for Jonah and Glory for their first Thanksgiving/Christmases (2005 and 2008)....




(Happy Birthday, Greg!)

  1. Glad you had fun making crafts. My Christmas tree is full of ornaments that were made by myself and my girls. We always remember the ornament when we put it on the tree and tell the story behind it. Love & blessings from NC!

  2. Making Christmas ornaments is one of our favorite traditions, too! My favorites are the ones where we took a glass ball and painted their little hands white and stamped them on the ornament. So simple, but so precious to me now. :-)
