More Christmas Prep

We've been making ornaments the last couple days. We bought glitter Saturday night. Jackson was carrying the tube on our way to the checkout and somehow popped the lid off. So it spilled all over our shopping cart, and Timothy's baby blanket, and Jackson's clothes, not to mention the floor. Thankfully, it was a small tube, not the larger jar I bought of gold! Anyway, it has taken until today to finish some up because the glue has to dry, then add more glitter, then dry... all in between my regular chores and busy-ness. :)

Making Jackson's hand:

The gold:

My baby discovering the tree today. I just had to make sure he couldn't get it in his mouth.

My little gift-wrapping helper. He was so cute, wanting the paper and the tape. So I decided to wrap him. He loved it!! For a few minutes at least!

Our wrapping jobs:
I love Christmas time! The sounds, the smells, the sights... it's the most wonderful time of the year. I have been playing Christmas music constantly, and today I popped in my Holiday Bayberry Yankee Candle tart... it smells SOOO yummy! Christmas really does have a magical feeling. On top of that, it's such a wonderful time to remember the birth of our Savior. Without Him, we wouldn't even have life, much less a wonderful life. Praise the Lord for this season, but most of all for His Son!
