Kids' Crafts

This one entertained the thirty-somethings on Christmas Eve.

An IKEA kit for the house, 
and royal icing made from scratch, 
plus a raid on the pantry that produced the candies, sprinkles,
and pretzel squares.

All ready for the rest of the arriving family this morning.

We were impressed!

Mission accomplished

The annual wreath 
constructed by my dad 
from greens gathered from the yard 
by my mom and me, 
hung on the chimney with care.

Aren't they cute?

Aren't I lucky?
