Making Christmas ornaments

Hey gals,

What a long week it's been!  Lara and Nick came down with a cold and Nicholas has been on breathing treatments for the last few days.  Today I woke up with a miserable sore throat and a migraine.   I also have been visiting a friend in the hospital.  She had surgery yesterday and I am hoping she'll be able to go home soon.   I did manage to make a couple of ornaments and another Christmas tree.  The paper I used for the tree is from SEI.  These are great projects to do while you're sitting watching cartoons.

The link for this Christmas tree is 

The kids loved making their ornaments.  Lara was loving the glitter.   Nicholas was more into the foam stickers.

Here is our paper chain for Christmas.  Nicholas liked it so much, he refused to cut any off this year.  He's such a character.

So the kids are really getting into Christmas.  Lara has taken to asking for toy that she sees on the TV for Christmas.  She's learned this from Nick.  One commercial came on showing a kid online computer game.  She tells me, "I want that, mommy, for Christmas.".  I looked at her and asked her, "Do you know what that is?"  She looks me in the eye and says, "No."  I totally cracked up.

Have a great day,

My daughter had never seen commercials before, she has just discovered them and considers them her shopping list! I laughed when I read your comment, as we've been having the same kind of reply: "I don't know what it is but can I have it?"

I feel your pain. I had the worst migraine this weekend. And now Rachel has a sore throat. It's not my week. :(
I wanted to pop over and see your new creations. Love that tree and the decor. I need to try making a tree when I feel better. Thanks for the inspiration :)

Love all the Christmas stuff you are doing. That tree is adorable and I love that the kids made ornaments. How cool is that??!!
Hope you feel better soon and that your friend gets out of the hospital soon.
I have 2 kids already down with my pink eye and one is running a temp and congested...Meemaw is taking them to the doctor tomorrow (except for Jesse, I will share my eye drops with him and take him in OK)

You may try Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa (ninjiom-hk.cwahi.net). i know alot of people use it, its also non alcoholic, though it's effectiveness is not as good as alcohol based cough medicine, but it's still good to use on not so serious scratchy throat.
