So, since I'm feeling really icky, I'm stealing an idea from both LiLa and P.J. and posting a TRUTH FOR TUESDAY. See, I couldn't title my post as such, because then it would be immediately obvious that I am plagiarizing. (okay, that was a joke. I can see some writers already wrinkling their noses and about to click UNFOLLOW faster than they click the X at the top.) That P word is scary. So...see how delirious I am. I keep losing track of what the heck I'm supposed to be doing. Oh, Truths.....
Truthfully, I am so in love with my kids' artwork and crafts that I prefer their work to store bought decorations. I mentioned this to the Court Jester yesterday as I stared at the snowflakes hanging from our ceiling. He agreed and mentioned the perfect reason for this Truth. It's because there isn't another one like them and it's unlikely I'll get them to make them ever again. (You know, especially after junior high hits. Then it will be so totally uncool to do crafts with mom.)Christmas is our big holiday to decorate, get out the glitter and sparkle the house. Or each other, as it usually ends up. I have my certain special things-the beautiful houses that light up and make my miniature town (which I have not organized yet) and my sparkly, gold, green and red candles. Oh, and I have a moving Christmas Scene...too cool. I'm so glad it all made it through the move without breaking. I digress....again....
The decorations that I love the most, though, are the ones that we make together as a family or the ones that my princesses bring home from school. They add the magic that is Christmas. Yes, magic. I wonder how I enjoyed Christmas before them, honestly. (If you don't have kids, I'm not trying to leave you out. Before Kids, I partied hardy for Christmas.) Here are some photos of the magic I couldn't live without.
Princess Kayla made these in pre-school with marbles and paint.
The ornaments were designed and produced by Princess Rhiannon and the snowman is Princess Kayla's from kindergarten
This picture really doesn't do justice for the amount of glitter we used to make these last year.
sorry for the bad lighting and as you can see, part of my chain fell as soon as I snapped the picture. Darnit.
So, what is your truth for Tuesday? and does anyone have some Ginger Ale??
