we are a go for christmas

Oscar decided this year that my "wait to decorate until after his birthday" plan was no good so Christmas is already up! This year I'm starting my career as crazy tree lady, but more on that later. Right now I have to chase down the madcrafter and see what mess he's gotten into. It's going to be hard to keep up with Oscar this year. I think I'm going to put a bunch of project ideas in a jar and each day we pick one. I used to think this sort of activity-a-day advent action was insanity but with him being so craft crazy it actually seems like a good strategy to slow. him. down. I was smart and got him a fake tree for the playroom for all his handmade ornaments. He's calling it his art tree and it's already half full.

For school he needs to bring in a handmade ornament to hang on the class tree. We're trying out this snowflake ornament from a Martha Stewart Kids magazine. It's crystalizing as we speak. Very exciting!

    Hooray for Christmastime!
    My daughter’s birthday is a week from Saturday, and we flirted briefly with no tree until after the birthday, but it didn’t last.

    How great that he is so into crafts. I bet he’s having a blast decorating his own tree. This year we opted to keep our regular ornaments in storage and only make handmade ones. We have quite the mix, but we are all loving it. Love the crystalized snowflake.
