Today's fun activity was to make Christmas ornaments. We just took pipe cleaners and bent them into shapes. We made candy canes, stars, and hearts. Then using the solution of 9 tablespoons of borax to three cups of hot water, we hung (susspended with string) the pipecleaners into the solution. We started this project this morning. After returning from our errands, the ornaments were fully crystalized! This was such a fun and easy project. I will probably thry this with my class next year! (Pictures will arrive soon!)
I almost forgot - Bri got a Hannah Montana guitar. She really is a rock star now!

The girls and I visited the Festival of Trees yesterday. They had so much fun seeing all of the christmas trees. The festival of trees is a n event that our local hospital throws to raise money. The trees are all auctioned off and the money goes to charity. It also makes the best place for christmas card pictures.
