Christmas Treasures

Christmas decorations make me smile. For me, it isn't about having the most beautiful decorations, or a tree decorated according to a particular theme. It is about memories of past Christmases. When my children were younger, I always tried to come up with a new craft of some sort for them each year. I have saved all of those projects; and now, when I pull out these various projects, they really do make me smile. I can remember their little hands being so busy around the table working on their projects. Here are a couple of treasures that my son made when he was probably about 4 years old (17 years ago). How can these not make someone smile?

Did you know that Grandma has the sock doll that Ashley made? It is just as cute and I will have to get a picture. We loved making sock dolls and we got the idea from an older cousin one year. I guess that Luke didn't want to feel left out!

I too have many of these treasures around my home that I adore from when my children were younger.
