Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We sure did! We spent tons of family time together, ate spicy party mix (recipe in a previous post) watched several classic holiday movies and made some homemade ornaments!
But first I have to show you these pictures I took of our first snow! It was a perfect, beautiful snow! We enjoyed watching the flakes fall all day long.
Our front porch~
Here is our walkway….totally undisturbed~
This is looking out our front window~
It is a quiet, gorgeous night. Cold but SO beautiful!
And this was our snowy day project. I went to Michaels and bought packages of the clear Christmas ball ornaments. We just used my craft paints (watered down a bit to make them blend better) Then we squirted whatever colors we wanted into the ball and then shaked, rattled and rolled it all around! Then we finished some of them off with writing and ribbon!
Here is Alex making his first one~
This is Noah shaking his paint all around~
Here they are drying~
Here are some of our creations~
Here are the ones I made. Some of these the kids did the paint and I did the writing on~
Here are some more! We made lots~
What an EASY and FUN project to do! We had a great time! And the best part! There is NO right or wrong….Alex put six colors in some of his and we all thought “wow…. how is that one going to turn out”!? And they turned out FABULOUS!
We made some old fashioned bead ornaments too! The kind I made when I was a kid!
Our kids are crossing their fingers for a snow day tomorrow so that we can do more crafts! :)
What a positively perfect day! I counted my many blessing today. So thankful for my wonderful husband, our five beautiful children, and our families that love us so much! And our healthy puppy too! :)
Until next time. Take care. ~Sarah~
