So Merry Christmas!! I know it is a little late but I had last minute family in from out of town. I have been playing hostess and not much of anything else. I really wanted to get these last few thing posted before Christmas but I am only one person. :( I should have asked Santa for an extra pair of hands.
I finally finished our 2011 Family Ornament!!! I did put our names on our hats and our dogs names on the small snowballs. What do you think? I love them and can't wait to make more. I used E6000 glue to attach all my snow people together. Now the clay doesn't bake up white so I did have to do a good coat of white paint over the bodies before I painted everything else.

|The funny snowball on the top of our heads has our last name and the year written on them. Can you believe Mr.Wonderful and I have been collecting them since our first christmas together 10 years ago. :)|
We also let the boys make hand print ornaments. I love them!!! I will cherish these forever. I painted them white and painted the hand prints with glitter paint. On the back I wrote their names, the date, and what they asked for from Santa.
Now this ornament is near and dear to my heart. It is still unfinished because I still unsure of the wording. This is my thumb print and Mr. Wonderful's thumbprint. I painted it white and then painted my little birds with the thumb print as the body. Isn't it so cute?!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year!!!!
