when Dad gets crafty

The other morning I woke up with Lucy in my face saying, mom! We need a star for our tree!
Since we hadn’t bought a tree at that point, I had no idea what she was talking about. Surely my little girl with the big imagination was creating something in her make-believe world.
Come on mom! Let’s go get a star!
I got out of bed, walked in the front room, and what to my wondering eyes should appear?

But a minature tree, made by my dear.

Before leaving for work, my sweet husband somehow found the green construction paper in our closet, shaped it into a cone, hole-punched some “ornaments”, and made Lucy a tree for her Princesses. To be honest, it wouldn’t have mattered what it looked like. The fact that he took on a craft project all on his own was the sweetest treat to wake up to.

Lucy and I cut out a small yellow star and stuck it on top. How does it look, I asked her?Perfect.

I agree.
