Friday was a fun day! As you can see in the picture above, Tristan was really excited. The time had finally come to make Christmas ornaments! I found this recipe on a flyer from Lifeway Christian store. The picture above is of Tristan preparing to get started. In the next picture, he's unwrapping peppermints for the ornaments.
He quickly got a bowl full and was ready to move on to the next step.
While creating his masterpieces, he had to indulge himself in a few peppermints.
Here he is laying out his design.
This was our first tray to bake.
This was our next one. See how some of the designs got a little more creative? The one on the bottom left was Tristan's watergun.
Here they are after baking. I accidentally left this batch in a little too long. Ooops!
Here is Tristan, proudly displaying his finished watergun ornament.
And here is our first finished Christmas wreath ornament. Notice the old picture of Tristan. Yeah, umm...I kind of haven't made it to Sam's to pick up my more recent pictures. Oh well! It will get done at some point!Overall, we had a great time. I'm glad we finally got around to making these. It was worth the wait!
