every year since she was three lily has painted those little wooden photo ornaments you can find in the craft stores for me and her two grandmothers. i didn't really set out to start a yearly tradition, but that is what it has become.
ever since kindergarten, it's been a good way to be sure her grandparents get a copy of her school photo, since i am terrible about mailing them out.
last weekend lily sat down to paint this year's ornament (and actually *last* year's ornament as well, we're not always timely at my house, but we do eventually get things done).
of course, because it's lily, they almost always involve the glitter. here's the finished products in all their sparkly glory:
oh what was that? you want to see all the ornaments?
well okay, you've twisted my arm. i do enjoy a good nostalgic stroll down lily lane.
