Lets create some memories

Every year I have the kids add to the ornaments on the Christmas tree. They each have a little stash of ornaments that they have chosen and collected over the years. It is not Festival of trees standard. It is more Charlie Brown standard. I love it and one day each child will be able to take their ornaments to their homes and families. Some of the ornaments on our tree are home made. When daddy and I were too poor to buy fancy things. A few represent our honey moon spot, the place where daddy served his mission and some that came from various trips together. It is a modge podge of memories. This year we decided to make our ornaments rather than pick one at the store. I didn't know it was going to be such a hit with this crowd.  
Munchie was thrilled to get her hands on the salt dough. Being who she is she tried the nasty stuff. YUCK! 
Gator was very good at getting it thin.
This is something right up this creative girls alley!
once dry we would be able to paint... It took forever to let them dry. I even baked them for four hours and they still weren't all the way dry.
When painting was finally under way, each kids kept saying they loved painting. 
clearly a win for the year!
