The girls were not really interested in helping me make the holiday candy. Which was fine with me since it ends up being more of a chore and a mess with all the extra little hands. However, Lola was intrigued when she heard the banging start and had to come investigate. Next thing I know I had a little girls VERY eager to help. She really enjoyed "crushing" the candy canes for mommy. I just hope she wasn't picturing Sophie while she was banging away.
These are the Christmas ornaments I made for everyone this year. They are old wooden spools that I painted then stamped names onto. Then they were strung with twine and I added some strips of material for decoration.
