I think I went a bit crazy with the powdered sugar.
I am running out of places in my house (with appropriate light) to take pictures of the kids. Today I moved to the piano.
Here is the link to Ms. Dean's wonderful recipe. Thanks Paula!
I had an inspiring conversation with some friends today about ornaments. I so want to have meaningful ornaments on our tree, but it's hard for me to know where to start. I bought a few after we got married at some after-Christmas sales, but even those, I'm not too attached to. We have a few that G-Mommie (Chris' mom) made for us right before she died. I am so grateful she made them so our kiddos can have them one day. It has been nearly 5 years, and I still can't pull them out without tearing up. Graham does too, when he talks about her. He was almost 4 when she passed away, and still has vivid memories of her. He specifically wanted to hang this (below) one. A special thanks to the Wilson family for making this memory for us. I'd love to have more memory ornaments like this and would love to hear your thoughts. A friend today says she picks a theme for each of their kids and gives them an ornament of that theme every year on the first day of Advent. She says her kids love it. What are YOUR ideas?
