We made these our last week of school before our break ,
we are going to hang them on our memory tree .
You will need:
*Clear glass or plastic ball ornaments
*Fabric paint ( in squeeze bottles ) black
Remove the top of the ornament and fill with fake snow . Use the eraser end of a pencil to push the snow down a bit so you can get the ornament nice and full , if you pack the snow to loosely then as it settles , the ball will no longer be full of snow . Replace the ornament top . Wipe down the outside of the ornament with rubbing alcohol and wait a few minutes for it to dry . Using the black paint , squeeze out 2 dots for eyes and 6 dots for a mouth . Using the orange paint , paint on the nose . Place on top of a cup to dry . We took a sharpie and put our initials and date on the bottom .
I had craft projects and making snacks planned to do with the kids over our break but this is my 8th day with this flu and lets just say that the flu is harsh , it will not let go , all the kids have it now . We are postponing Christmas , at least getting together with family , we don't want other people getting this flu , believe me it's terrible . I didn't even finish the kids stockings so we are not going to have any this year , it's ok with them they know what Christmas is all about , I let them have an early present today , it was a stop sign , they have been wanting one for a while , they love to ride their riding toys in the house in the winter , they don't know it yet but under the tree they have a traffic light to go with it and a gas pump . I can't wait to watch them open their presents .
We had our last day of school yesterday before our break , I didn't know if I would make it the rest of this week after coming down with the flu on 12-12-12 :( . I am thankful that it's not the type of flu that keeps you in the bathroom though it's a head and chest flu , still makes you ache all over though. Just thought I would update and post some pics . I have had so much fun watching the kids open their advent calendars this year , especially Leah because this is her first year getting an advent , last year she was to little , so far I think her favorite gift was a small bag of marshmallows , funny she would rather have food than a toy . I love Christmas , singing Christmas songs , decorating , wrapping presents , Christmas trees . I have a few trees that I love to put out every year , one of my favorites is what I call my psalm tree , I decorate this tree with psalms , bible verses and I have a church that lights up . My other favorite is our memory tree , on this tree I put ornaments the kids have made over the years and pictures of the kids every Christmas and a few pictures of close family members that have passed on . My other tree is our nature tree , I have it because I love the outdoors and we decorate it with anything woodsy . The girls have a little pink tree upstairs , they decorate it with little girly ornaments . So far this year we have had mild temperatures here , probably this will change but for now I love it . Here is a picture of Job , I can't believe he is going to be 4 months on the 29th of this month . I love his shyness , when he smiles at me he wants to hide his face .
Leah is going through terrible two's , but still as lovable as ever , every morning when we start school she wants paper and a pencil to.
Riley wanted to know if she could be my mommy and take care of me til I get better , she is so sweet . I have the best nurses ...
Dallas has been busy , I can't wait to spend some time with her as soon as I get better .
