Ornament School

The other day, I suggested to the girls that perhaps we should limit our Christmas tree to only handmade ornaments this year.

**blank stares***

So…oh, well.  That went over like a lead balloon and I took the dog for a quick walk.  Sigh.  But when I returned???

Ornament School!

Tater had her sisters riveted to her lecture (she was the "teacher"), and then the snipping and gluing and even some sewing began.  I stayed in the background, secretly thrilled that they had taken my idea and run.  Yippee!

Here is the aftermath:

And here is Tater in action:

The sweet simplicity of ornament school.  I want to remember it forever.
