Christmas Tree Cards
We took the morning to make Christmas cards for the neighbors. I found this cute kid-made card idea at Goody Goody Gumdrops via One Pretty Thing.
Five strips of scrapbook paper, cardstock, and a gluestick was all it took to make some adorable handmade Christmas cards! Even A was able to help with this one. While the girls worked, we had a fantastic view outside of the falling snow!
It never snows in December here in southeastern Virginia! What a great early Christmas gift!
After the snow turned into rain, we headed back indoor to bake some scones to go along with all those cards. For the BEST SCONE RECIPE EVER head over to Beautiful Nest. I made three batches - chocolate chip, cinnamon pecan (not shown), cranberry/white chocolate chip (which didn't turn out very pretty so I kept for ourselves), and orange/cranberry.

It's beautiful. I cried. Trust me - get it from your library and read it to your kids. You'll both be blessed.
