Make Your Own Ornament Tradition

Every year, we make an ornament for each child. (I actually started this when Laura was a year old, but I made one retroactively for before that.) This year's ornament is buttons! Now that the girls are old enough to help, I try to pick projects that they can do. They filled their globes with buttons, then told me where to glue the outside buttons on.


Last year, we made these painted strip ornaments, but because we didn't name last year's miscarriages until this year (2011 was an overwhelming year), I had to make two ornaments this year for those babies. We've named them Francis and Jean.

So, here are Karen's 2012 and Francis's 2011 ornaments.
