My brothers and I have a homemade only rule for ourselves every Christmas. Last year, Doug made lollipop trees for each of them. My children heartily approved. This year, I am using my extremely limited crafting skills to make something simple, but time consuming. The result is that several hundred times a day, the children walk by me working on the gifts at our kitchen table. In the beginning, they asked questions. “What are you doing?” After that, they asked more questions. “What IS that exactly?” Now, they just make confused faces. Well, Sawyer makes faces AND asks questions. “But WHY are you doing that?”
Now that I am about 40% done, I’m seriously starting to doubt my choice of craft. I wonder if it’s too late to switch to baked goods.
