Every year, I buy each of the kids an ornament reflecting something important or new from the previous year. This year, Christian was easy:
Coleman was a little harder; his ornament was from his summer of select lacrosse.
Carolyn was easy also, as this was her first year of lacrosse (seems like it's been longer than a year, doesn't it!?)
And every year the kids make ornaments for grandparents and aunts and uncles. This year's ornaments were fantastic!!!
Christian's twig Christmas tree:
Coleman's bottle cap snowman:
and Carolyn's glittered origami crane:
They all did such a great job on them, and I think the ornaments really reflect the maker's personality!
