Rudolph the Red Nosed Billydeer

Tonight DH and I made ornaments with the kids. Since we moved into this house 3 years ago I started making foot/handprint reindeer with the girls. Its so much fun and very easy to do.
Making this year's reindeer.

DD1 with her collection of reindeer.

DD2 with her collection of billydeer.I guess that I didn't want to wake her the first year we were here because she doesn't have a reindeer, but she does have one teeny tiny 4 month old foot angel. Its precious. One night at Home Depot she said she was watching the billy goats. DH told her they were reindeer. She's a bit confused and billydeer they are.

Its so neat to see how little they were when we had our first Christmas here. My oldest was 2 and the youngest was 4 months old that Christmas. In order from left to right, 2006. 2007, & 2008

Rehanging the ornaments ...

Here is a view of the tree from DD1's bed. She likes for us to shut the door though so she can see all the little lights dancing underneath. Sweet dreams!

So cute! I am doing a variation of your deers tomorrow with my kids. I love doing crafts with hand and foot prints for all the reasons you mentioned.m How sweet of you to let your girls be in charge of their own tree.
