A few snippets of Christmas cheer around our home.
I'm proud that this year, homemade and handmade decorations are hung alongside the garish store bought decorations. I'm proud that Master L had his chance to really put his spin on the tree decorating this year- it's far from perfect but he thoroughly enjoyed himself and I believe I might have enjoyed watching him even more.
Jodi's post has made me realise that since becoming a mother I have embraced and now look at with delight, what I once would have considered imperfections. Toys arranged in a haphazard fashion, scribbles on a piece of crumpled paper and wrinkled bed covers have now become a young child's imagination conjuring up a whole other world; a picture of our beloved family dog and the mark of an excited toddler practising his co-ordination by jumping on my neatly made bed. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.
Have you made any Christmas decorations this year? Do you have a favourite decoration your child has made?
