Salt Dough Ornaments – Baby’s First Christmas

A few weeks ago I posted about how easy and economic it was to make salt dough ornaments to paint and give away as homemade Christmas ornaments. This is an ornament I made for one my nieces.  Hopefully it will be one of those ornaments that she treasures because she loves her wacky, crazy, foul-mouthed Auntie SO much.

Ho ho holy F am I glad Christmas is over.




We had a great Christmas. Because my parents are divorced, we had three celebrations, including the one with Dustin’s side of the family. Lillienne got some great presents, and she won’t need clothes until she is ninety two years old. Also, thanks to all the relatives who got her toys the size of Kansas, toys that need sixteen “D” batteries, and toys that are very LOUD and go on by themselves which mean they are probably possessed, and now I am scared to go out in the livingroom/kitchen area at 2am to get a drink of water because that THING is playing music on its own. I’m just waiting for the TV to turn on as well and have Carol-Ann telling me “they’re here…”
All in all Christmas was very busy. Family and friends and traveling and cheesecakes and Grandma Mary’s buns and undoing your jeans so you can breathe. Christmas lights and wine and babies not sleeping at the farm and losing your child amongst the mounds and mounds of wrapping paper. Christmas cookies and Bing Crosby and opening the 7907502 gifts Lillienne received. We had a wonderful Christmas. But I am glad (and so is my waistline) that it’s over. Til next year……

baby’s first christmas – more baking and our tree.

I totally caved. I just couldnt do the whole “baby’s first christmas” without a christmas tree. I dug it out on Saturday (yes we have a fake tree- save the earth and trees for your grandkids!) and decorated it yesterday with the help of my sister. It looks beautiful.
Also made rice krispy squares today. I had the best intentions of saving these and putting these with the other christmas baking goodies, but I have a feeling these will not last until then.

helping with the baking! (if you call making rice krispy squares baking…)
