Thanksgiving is over so Christmas begins. We put up the tree Thanksgiving day and Holly spent all day yesterday making ornaments for the tree. What a beautiful job she did.
There is still room for some of the decorations I made last year for this tree so today we will find that box and get the smallest ones of those for the tree also.
Now you can see the decorations she made. This is only one side of the tree and many are on the other sides. They look simple but believe me they are not between making the dough, cutting them out, baking them, drying them and painting them it took several days and way into the night yesterday to finish them up and get them onto the tree.
Here is a close up of one of the decorations she made. You see it is not just painting for the final step but also decorating them. All of the decorations on the tree are hand made except for the two new ones given to the boys. Luke is all llamas so he had to have a llama for on the tree.
He blends in perfectly with the hand made decorations.
I am not sure if this is Landen’s or Holly’s , I will have to ask. The only other non-hand made decoration is the star at the top of the tree. It is hard to see in the first picture so here is a close up of that one.
I hope Joe is looking at this and knows we are all missing him. The cost of flying on the holidays make it impossible to have him here with us so we look forward to our Thanksgiving/Christmas in another week when Joe can come home for a week to celebrate the holidays with us– Thankful he is home and Christmas for the family, should be a wonderful week. Have a good day and God Bless everyone!
