2016 - Christmas Craft Ornaments

This year, Isabelle made Christmas Tree ornaments with thumb prints to hang on our tree and give as gifts for Christmas.


We made salt dough with green food coloring, 


and dipped her finger in red paint to make the  ornaments.


She loved putting them in the Christmas tree!!

Gingerbread Houses

Isabelle made her first gingerbread house today at the Waukesha Public Library.  They read a story, sang a few Christmas songs, and then everyone got to make their own gingerbread houses with milk cartons.  She loved decorating the outside and eating marshmallows!!

Christmas Cookies at Grandma's

This year, Isabelle helped make Christmas cookies at Grandma & Gido's house.  She loved frosting the cookies and, of course, eating as many as she could.  We loved watching her mixing and waiting for the cookies to bake.  I have become much less of a perfectionist when it comes to cookie decorating over the last few years!!

Halloween Cards

Isabelle has been busy this month making Halloween cards with Grandma Carla.



She made 13 cards to send to family and friends for Halloween.  Her favorite part was coloring the front and putting stickers on the inside.  She even signed all of them herself!
