Salt Dough Christmas Ornaments

Seems like sewing is always on the back burner to something more important these days. The Husband is working longer hours these days to help with the expenses of Christmas, while my days are filled with some combination of cooking, cleaning, spending time with the children or babysitting. Where do the days go?
I'm currently 18 weeks pregnant...that's 4 and 1/2 months already! I can hardly believe how fast it's going. I've been feeling the baby move for a few weeks now and we had an ultrasound last Friday to find out the sex - no luck yet though! Baby is too small for the Doctor yet to be sure. I have another appointment for an ultrasound to determine the sex two days before Chistmas. *Crossing Fingers* I hope we will be able to tell then! It would be nice to begin shopping for baby and take advantage of the holiday sales.
I did manage to squeeze in some crafting time with the girls making salt dough ornaments to hang on the tree. We made these a few weeks ago, I've just got to find the time to seal them before Christmas! Lol* I thought they would make nice gifts for the Grandparents and we won't leave out teachers too. I got the recipe here.
These were the beautiful results from my 4 year old...
Here are my 8 year old's treasures -
The girls really enjoyed making these. I'm so glad we did this together! I made a few bowl fillers just for Mommy which I'll have to share with you in my next post. :)

I was thinking about salt dough ornaments this morning. Wondering if I could find time to make some or maybe the applesauce ones. Good project for your children.
