We spent the weekend before Christmas in Mobile, celebrating Christmas with the Beavers.  Turns out that Gladys is more of an animal-lover than we even suspected. :)

Paper Snowflake Prodigies

Elsie has been bugging me about making paper snowflakes.  This is one of my favorite winter activities, however, I've always engaged in this activity alone, and has some serious hesitations about getting the kids involved.  I'm ashamed to say, but it was an issue of quality--I was afraid that their snowflakes wouldn't be very good.  I know.  I'm a troll.  They love crafting, so I relented, and they blew my socks off.

One of Elsie's ("Look, Mama, the snowflake has a snowflake in the middle of it!"):

Another of Elsie's:

Yet another of Elsie's (like I said, blew my socks off):

One of Oscar's:

All of ours (Mine are the top left, bottom left, and middle middle):

Must be in our blood.  :)
