Home Made Ornaments

 We baked our own ornaments this year out of flour, salt, and water.  The kids enjoyed rolling out the dough and cutting out designs.  We had so much fun that we decided to make sugar cookies the next day.  They painted them and then waited anxiously for them to dry.

Conveniently, their Wednesday night church AWANA club was having an ornament contest the following week.  Danya entered her angel.  Gloria decided, instead, to crochet an ornament.  It was a neat little red and green ball.  She filled it with coins so that it would jingle.  I'm constantly impressed by the things she makes.

Poor "Hoops".  Her ornament broke before she even got
to paint it.  "Happy" dropped it on the table.
