Clothespin Star Ornament

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, every where you go! Now if that song doesn't get stuck in your head you may be lacking the Christmas spirit. I think Christmas has got to be my favorite season/holiday. Well the Christmas festivities begun before Thanksgiving in my house. We put our tree up, had the kids decorate and even put the Christmas music on. It was truly looking like Christmas in my house for sure. Speaking of Christmas tree, if you're looking for something fun to do with the kids, something unique and handmade, then look no further than this Clothespin Star Ornament. You can decorate your tree and the kids will feel special knowing that they made their own ornament and sometimes handmade may be just what you're looking for.

I have to be honest with you here. I used to believe in Santa like most kids but stopped believing at a very young age. I've always wondered how can one person travel to every house on Christmas day and deliver gifts? And then why were some gifts big and others small, and if he goes to every house, why didn't the kids next door get gifts? Why didn't I get what I asked for if he gives you what you wanted? I think my kids are just like me. I tried getting them into Christmas and the whole Santa thing but it wasn't working. They are huge skeptics with the exception of Madison so I'm going to enjoy Christmas along with her.  Now I have to say that even though we don't "believe" in Santa, I do however believe in the concept of him. He's here to spread holiday cheer to everyone. After all who can be sad and unhappy when you see the jolly old St. Nick? Well except for the little ones who are deathly afraid of him, but they are usually afraid of most strangers and you can't blame them. Strangers are scary! So now on to our Clothespin Star Ornament that you came here for.
