A Hand-made Ornament and a Smile

Half of my children were here for the weekend
and the other half will be here for Christmas Day.

I've told my children for years, 
"All I want is for Christmas is to have my children near
and a photo of my babies or 
a sentimental ornament to hang on my tree
every year."

This year I got all I wanted.

This was made by my sweet DIL 
and painted by my sweet grandson.

MY DIL made this for me at a shop 
in Nashville called "Fired Up."

The balls are Connor's little fingerprints.

What a treasure!

This smile is worth MORE than a thousand words!

Merry Christmas to YOU,
