Another Ornament

This is our ornament from 2004. As I said last week, this is probably my favorite thus far! The tree is made of two triangles. They are painted green and then sprinkled with embossing powder which is finer than glitter. The star was painted and attached as was the little ornaments and the bead work.

This was the first ornament that Peter helped with. He would come home from K4, and after lunch while Drew was napping, he would help me paint. It was great, messy fun!

On the snow front, we only got about 4-5 inches of snow last night. I was hoping for an all out storm to close school, but it was just enough to be messy! Areas to the north and west of us (as close as 20 minutes away) got 8-10 inches and they are closed. Oh well!

It is still so warm here that (some, not me) people are still wearing shorts. Al Gore should be happy, it could be used as evidence of G warming. (sic)
The ornament is so cute. I love it.
Gotta go do a meme post someone tagged me for.
