Cute as a Button

A: Sooo, Mom. What are you doing after nap?
M: I don't know. What do you have in mind?
A: I have in mind something crafty and a big mess.

So we made matching rainbow button bracelets.

That's right we are bracelet buddies.

The boy is a nice blend of Mama and Daddy.

"Just messing around."

The bracelets were not enough to satisfy our crafting compulsions so we made ornaments too.

I made a blue one for an ornament exchange and the wreath just because I wanted to.
