Presents

This year for Christmas we are each making something for each person. This is the first year the kids are giving each other gifts.

This will be the handkerchief doll the prince makes for his sister

This will be the 2 blankets the prince makes for the twins (tied fleece) This will be the pajama pants I am making for everyone. I made some when the prince was little but that was a long time ago, we will see how they turn out :)

Daddy is making shirts (iron-on emblems) for everyone to wear with their pajama pants for Christmas eve and then they can be worn out in the world. The twins are making bookmarks, and I am not sure what the princess is going to be making this year. The two big kids will get a couple of store bought presents but we really want them to realize what this season is all about: giving not receiving and praising God for sending his son!

I love this idea. There is so much joy in making someone you love something special. You'll have to show us pictures with all the matching pjs.

We are doing a home-made Christmas this year too! Just a thought for your daughter...I'm having Lauren make sock puppets for my twins, add some wiggly eyes and yarn for hair and she's good to go!
