A few more Christmas things....

Well, we spent the day in the city yesterday. I got my shots for my trip (five in all!) and we did a little shopping. I picked up a super cute snow jacket and pants for Sage. It's a little big, but I'm hoping she'll wear it for a few years.





And I wanted to share a few Christmas projects I've done in the last month....

A few years ago, I started making CD ornaments and covering them with photos of my kids and the year. On the back, I journal about each of them: their age, personality & interests. I wanted to make some more for 2009, but I found that the tree was very "photo-heavy" when I put them on it, so I decided to do something a little different this year.

Here are the ornaments, which I used My Mind's Eye and Fancy Pants pp and Pink Paislee stamps (on Austin's) and border stickers (on Jonah's and Sage's.) I drilled holed in the top of each of them.



Then, I collected all of the ones I've made through the years and sorted them chronologically and for each child. I used a small binder ring to attach them together (threading it through the hole I'd drilled for the ribbon hangers.) Then I threaded the three little rings onto a larger binder ring and added some ribbon to decorate it.





Now it sits in a basket on my table where guests can flip through them and see how my kids have grown.

I also made this Christmas ornament, too.



Thanks for looking!
And a merry Christmas to you, too!
