The Sixth Day of CHRISTmas - ornaments and the littlest wiseman

I wanted to squeeze in one last idea for our CHRISTmas week.  A couple of years ago I made these ornaments of the Savior that hang on our tree.  A couple of you asked about them, so I thought I'd share them with you today.

My mom found these inexpensive little frames in packs of six and I spraypainted them silver to match our tree.  I found the little pictures of Christ HERE.  They are beautiful and they are all different.

I had to trim the pictures down a bit to get them to fit.  Then I hot glued some ribbon to the back so I could hang them up.

This year Rex helped me put up all the ornaments.  He loved hanging up the pictures of Jesus.  It gave me another opportunity to tell him more about why we celebrate Christmas.   Our tree is now a nice visual reminder to me of what is the most important - not only in this holiday season, but in everyday life as well.

Well, this concludes our week of CHRISTmas ideas.  I hope you've enjoyed it and I hope you've found a few ideas to use in your own families.

Before you go you have to watch this tiny little clip.  I absolutely love it....especially because I have little boys and especially because children are so precious.

Merry Christmas.
