"You should get it, Mom. I'll help pay for it. I'll pay 5 francs." How could I refuse that sweet offer? Of course I said yes!

Make a Pine Cone Swag
Make a Wooden Robot Ornament
Make a Grass Reindeer
Make a Tea Cozy
Make a Lovey
Make a Snow Child Toy
Make a Fall Swag
Make a Pomander Ball with a Small Child
While replenishing my links I came up with some good Christmas Crafts. Catholics among you will want to try the Advent wreath. A pine cone swag makes a beautiful decoration for the house, and small children can help make it. Children can also make wooden ornaments, like the robot my son made last year. Grown-ups can tackle a grass reindeer ornament, or make a tea cozy as a very special present. A lovey or a snow child would make wonderful handmade presents for someone you love. Tiny children can make a pomander ball with help from a parent, and both child and parent will feel tranquilized (in a good way) after doing it. A pomander ball is a sweet-smelling present which can be from a child. Americans looking for a great Thanksgiving craft the whole family can do together, check out the Fall Swag. It's gorgeous, easy, and fun, and I've been using mine for about 10 years! Lots other Fall and Winter crafts I've listed would also be fun at Christmas is you are looking for some handmade fun. See links in the right hand column.

It was so beautiful up there. I want to go into the mountains every weekend for the rest of my life.
We walked up to a cave we knew about. It was farther away than we thought. In this picture, I think my husband is trying to get my boy to go into the cave, saying something like, "Bears aren't hibernating yet, at this time of year. At least, I don't think they are."
We went inside about 40 feet, lighting matches. It felt like an adventure! Next time, we are going to bring flashlights and go a little bit further.
Then, as the light started to fade, we went home again.
