Family Craft Moment

Christmas cannot be defined in one single sentence or word. I like that it means different things to different people. Amongst the baked m&m cookies, fun just sitting in the livingroom with family while Christmas shows come on, and a graduation celebration for James, I picked up some foam crafts from Wal-mart that I thought would be easy enough for everyone to participate in. I think it was relatively easy to assembly, but the little adhesive dots that comes in the kit was extremely stubborn and would not let my gingerbread man's buttons stay on.

OK, So I cheated and used a glue-stick..but it ended up great anyway and we decorated the tree with them..poor ornaments didn't stand a chance near them! Kortney would have won if it were a contest, then Amy with her cute Snowman, and then mine, coming in last due to the eyeballs threatning to fall off my gingerbread man..(and what gingerbread man has curly hair?)but besides that I would say this would make a super-fun kid craft..and only 2 bucks..you know I was estatic about that! I wish real gingerbread decor was this easy..then maybe I wouldn't want to throw them against the wall next time and feel like Ebenezer Scrooge. Merry Christmas, all...6 more days!

Wow Daph, those are huge! lol. Maybe one day Gavin will marry Maddie so WE can have a family craft moment and smash gingerbread men against the walls together =0) We both share the lack of patience for things like that. =0)
They turned out cute! Glad y'all had fun.
