When the holiday season begins

We travel to Chicago to be with our daughter for Thanksgiving. This year father and daughter ran a 5K on Thanksgiving and then she cooked a yummy dinner.

What starts the Christmas season is making ornaments.
We started this new tradition last year.

Except for the paints, all the ornaments parts are from Red Lead Paperworks.  This ornament is the one I created.

We also made this small snow globe ornaments.
This is the one I created.

My daughter's favorite holiday is Christmas and she loves to create the ornaments. As she was growing up we used to make ornaments that she would give as gifts. The best part of Christmas for her was giving her gift, watching the recipient open it and then their smile. To this day, she still makes ornaments as gifts and can't wait for everyone to open them.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I'm linking my ornaments to Karen Evans' challenge blog called Emerald Creek Dares. The challenge is called Let The Festivities Begin.
