Making Snowflakes!!!

I have gone ALL out, even more than my usual 7 trees this year for Christmas! I will post pictures soon of all the decor, but I wanted to post on a fun project we did this week.
I am decorating my breakfast nook bay window this year for a fun party (pictures will come next week after the event =)), so I wanted the kids to make snowflakes for the windows!! They loved it and had sooooo much fun!! Owen has been under the weather, but this was a good pick me up one day. I am sure you remember when you were in school and you used to cut out snowflakes!! Well I folded the paper and they went crazy cutting =)!! They actually did a great job!! Aunt Nicole came over too and helped out. I will show you the final result in my Christmas Decor post, but here are some cute pictures of my little snowflake makers...
We are NUTS about Christmas time around here!! Today Claire has a field trip to see the Nutcracker. She asked if she could wear a scarf like Mama =)!! She is such a BIG girl!!!

Cute idea doing the snowflakes but you are braver than I would be - scissors??? Shane and Heath would have given each other a hair cut if I had done that when they were little!
