I was sitting at my computer, trying my best to wax poetic and create something beautiful for a Christmas gift, when I hear a little voice singing. "O zana, O Za-ana, let us gadly sing" it took me a few seconds to realize what I was hearing and seeing.

I have a friend and former neighbor named Angee, she is very creative. So creative in fact that she was invited by a local TV show to share a craft idea. This is what she did-
I thought is was easy enough that I could do it, and this morning I felt like J and I needed to get crafty! I realized that I had everything we needed to do our very own version of this craft, and so we got to it. I even let J do quite a bit of the work. He was SO HAPPY, it made me happy. (I watched Angee make these on the TV, and then I just did it from memory, I am really pleased with our final product!)
We used 12 x 12 card-stock- because that's what we had on hand. and I let J paint the entire paper blue, he used a sponge and he did an amazing job.
One nice thing about being one of the Youngest Grandchildren is that you "Inherit" old toys. J got this tractor from his Grandma T's house earlier this year. He loves it, and he has created a new Christmas Hayride tradition for his nativity sets.
The Snowman Nativity gets to do the driving. I know because I asked if one of the Little People characters could drive. I was told no, Only Snowman Mary drives. I'm glad that the Snowman Angel is there, because this set up really doesn't look too safe.

Someone has his Mother's sense of style!
My running outfit of choice lately has included knee high penguin socks. So really it should not have been a surprise to discover that B enjoys fun knee high socks as well. The odd thing about B and his socks is this, if he is wearing pants he doesn't want to wear socks, but if he can manage to wiggle out of his pants, he is perfectly happy to keep his stylish socks on all day long. Thus today's outfit- I guess I should go figure out where he shed his pants.
