so doing this..."What I love is that each morning, Charlotte and Amelia rush to their envelopes to see what we've written. The notes are sometimes a simple observation of a charitable act or a quick drawing to make them laugh. I love that Charles and I force ourselves to take a minute each evening to think about why we love our children. It's my version of Oprah's gratitude journal.
These are adorable! Paint whole hand, put ornament in child's palm, then wrap their fingers up (basically holding the ornament). Each of their fingers becomes a snowman with a little help from an orange and black Sharpie!
