A Messy, Warped, but Beautiful Christmas

It's seems like it's been a long time since I've blogged. I love Christmas, but for many reasons it takes a lot out of me. This year, I made it a point to let go of some things so I could rest and concentrate on enjoying the holiday with my family. 

We've had a ton of fun this December doing our Christmas traditions. The children were thrilled to go through our Jesse Tree/Advent Calendar again this year. We also built a gingerbread house and spent a night driving around looking for the best lights so the kids could leave their 'awards'.

Kid Created Gift, Fossil Medallion Necklace

This past August, the boys and I made fossil medallion necklaces for their treasure hunt birthday party. I've been meaning to share these for awhile but time has way of getting away from me...I also hope to share the birthday party someday - it was a ton of fun!

Anyways, I thought these would make great Christmas gift for children's friends or for Aunts and Grandmas. If the ladies in your family aren't too fond of creepy crawlies, you could also use stamps to imprint flowers or names.
