The $13 tree is still going strong

The kids actually put it together themselves this year. Jason put the two strands of lights on and then the kids put the ornaments on (mostly in one spot still;).

Xander has already made a “box” out of construction paper and tape to put under the tree and some Santas for the front window. Stockings are up and the shopping is done. We are set!

I should change the name of this blog to “what’s going on at our dining table today” since that is the majority of pics I take and post.

more crafts

The kids did bead ornaments Kristin left for us last night and it was the perfect craft. Very easy, pretty results and good dexterity practice for little hands.

The kids (Xander) wanted me to take a picture of the entire loot of crafts. Can you tell who loves crafts the most?? HAHA! Xander has four finished projects draped off him. I told him he looks like the Christmas tree.
