The year my daughter was born, the ladies in our family decided that our children already had too much stuff and don't need more clutter or things, that there were too many kids to buy everyone a gift at Christmas, and we'd rather they share a special day together. So the first year, we all got together before Christmas and made salt dough ornaments, and last year we made mugs for our parents with reindeer made of the kids' fingerprints. This year, I found these cute gingerbread men ornaments they could make, and we just pasted the kids' faces on them. I loved how they turned out! I also set out Santa and elf hats for them to wear. :) We then sang Happy Birthday to Jesus and ate birthday cake. And anytime the kids come over, they always want to bust out the costume box, which consists of Halloween costumes I bought post-Halloween last year for my daughter's Christmas gift and for the cousins to have something to do when they came over. It's so funny to see what they come up with!
I purchased the pattern and materials, and my sister made this AWESOME hat for my daughter....that she won't let me put on her head! So we had Little Molly try it on for size. She just stood there motionless with her hands in the air at first. Lol!
