So I have been seeing this trend on facebook of people promising hand-made goodies to the first five people to comment on their messages. While I have wanted so desperately to sign up on each one of them, I have thought long and hard about it and ended up not joining because I think I might have enough on my plate right now. :)
This whole fad, however, reminded me of all the home-made Christmas presents that we worked so hard on this year, and I realized that I never posted the finished product of the ornaments that Hendrix made for his family and close friends.
I must warn for anyone who is interested in a project like this, that the idea of playing in paint would probably appeal more to an older child. :) While the size of his little hand makes this ornament absolutely adorable......it was very difficult to get him to make perfect impressions without balling his little fist up. In fact, Daddy had to go after us with a paintbrush and touch them up a little bit.
The little poem induced tears from his grandparents when they opened them, and I am glad that we choose to do something heartfelt. I imagine we will see these on their trees for years to come. ;)
