Ronnie has been wanting to try stamping for a while. She finally caught me in the right mood, so I showed her the tools and a few tips. I gave her some aluminum blanks, and left the room. I couldn't watch. To my surprise, this is what she came up with. I was impressed! Not bad for an 8 year old's first try!
And how true. Texas is filled with joy :). We are visiting family for the holidays, and all getting a little spoiled for a couple weeks.
We went to a beautiful home in the Berkeley Hills for a tree trimming party. This is generally the type of view you see from the Berkeley Hills - there is always a glimpse of the Golden Gate Bridge. Our house is one of those lights at the bottom of the hill.
I think it was my kids' first time to decorate a Christmas tree, except for Ronnie who helped a friend last year.
Lila loved it and kept busy the entire party! She was very proud of her work.
It's probably a good thing we don't celebrate Christmas. I would really get obsessed with the ornaments and decorations! I love it!
