A Christmas Craft

When we visited my brother and sister-in-law a few weeks ago, we all enjoyed their colorful Christmas tree! Last year my sister-in-law made an initial ornament for each of her children and I love how they turned out!

Missy started with plain wooden letters painted white. She traced the letter on the back side of the paper, cut it out and glued it to the front of the letter. Then she embellished the letter with ribbon and a festive little branch. Missy added stickers to spell out each child's name. Each letter was hung to the tree with more ribbon. So cute!

Here are two of Missy's little cuties with one of mine, listening to a Christmas story.

While we were visiting we had the opportunity to see the Endeavour!

If you're in the LA area, go see it! It was really cool to see a real US space shuttle! Here's our little family under the shuttle.

And here are the cousins, ages 1-8. So much character in that bunch!

 The shuttle is in a temporary wing of the museum right now, but they're building a really neat display where it will be set up as though it's ready for launch. I guess I'm a geek enough to think that's so cool!

There's also a neat display of a mock-up ground control room and a simulator.

After seeing the shuttle we saw an IMAX on the Hubble Space Telescope. Also very very cool!

So there you go, a fun, cute craft and a fun, cool outing! So glad we got to see you again, Glenn & Missy and cousins!
