We painted an ornament & a lil mouse

This year my mother in law went with us to make the ornaments
Maddie had a ball and was very well behaved

2009'S Ornament
Yes that's a hole in it it fell and at least it didn't shatter but
we now have a tiny hole.

2008 Ornament - Her first Christmas

We made a trip to the local paint your own pottery here in town.
A fun tradition I started with Maddie to decorate an
ornament with a handprint.Getting harder as her hand gets bigger.

This year she was so into it and wanted to put a handprint on
everything all around the ornament, the table, a sponge
Since she was so in the mood for painting we let her pick
out something small for her to paint besides the ornament.
She picked that cute little mouse, she did a great job on it.
And it was all purple until she spotted the green.

I am thinking of taking her back sometime, maybe if
my sister in law comes home for Christmas
we could take the little ones
and go again.

Busy weekend, headed to my hometown tomorrow
to take pictures for a breakfast with Santa and pictures of the parade.
My favorite is breakfast with Santa, I love seeing the kids eyes
light up when they see him.
Each year the camera club I belong to is asked to take
pictures for their website & brochures.
I enjoy doing it and it helps me get experience.
Plus it's a good opportunity for networking
I am sure I'll have some photos to share afterwards.
