I decided that though the kids are often ULB's (see earlier post) I would try to do yet another thing on our Charlie Brown advent list. This one, surprisingly, went much better than the snowflake debacle. I hauled out the paint, glitter, and ribbons, and the kids decorated their own ornaments. They loved it, especially the apron wearing. The only hitch...perhaps I should buy plastic ornaments rather than glass next year. Charlotte has already destroyed a few. Alas, they will not become "heirlooms" as Fancy Nancy and Grace were hoping they would.
