Baby footprint ornaments

Andrew and I met with my sister in law, my mom,  my neice and nephews for an hour of crafts. My mom has made a tradition since Andrew was little of making an ornament, plate, bowl, etc that the little kiddos give their parents.

This year, I helped with the twins footprint ornament

We do foot and hand prints in the NICU (were I am a nurse) so I was called to help

And they turned out great! Fiona has her footprint on one side, and Seamus on the other

This is a great gift for grandparents and parents! I have also seen this idea, where you place the babies’ hospital arm band and hat into an ornaments. Super cute

Question for you:

Do you have any Christmas traditions?

Do you collect certain ornaments?

-each year we receive an ornament, usually to do with something from the year. This year, I am going to get Andrew a bike ornament for all his hard work in learning to ride for the first time!

  1. I am one of those crazy people whose tree looks like Martha Stewart decorated it. You know, everything matchy-matchy with bows and stuff. So no special ornaments here! But I do like looking at my mom’s because they have memories.
