Homemade Christmas Ornaments Kids Can Make

Christmas is about 3 weeks away and right now all of our Christmas decorations and ornaments are packed away in storage.  We recently moved out-of-state and are temporarily living in a rental home until our new house is complete.  That won't be until sometime in January, so we will not have access to our Christmas stuff!  So, I … {Read More}
