Different Christmas ornament…and…

First I’ll show you ours and Anton making it. Then I have a “different” one to show you.



We’ve made about 6 so far but they are so easy to give away too so these are the last two for now. It’s just folded paper, glue dots and a button. Easy.

Here’s a “different” ornament I found today. We aren’t going to make them, I sure don’t want to explain what they are using for supplies but it is a unique idea.

Can us guess what they are made out of? Think TOM.


Joss loves helping me in the kitchen. We bake, cook and make some goodies to take home. Last night she was so mad her mama came and we were still cooking.

So that’s that. Nothing real new here. Oh the difference between black and brown coal, the brown coal burns at 26,000 – 30,000 btu’s and the black coal burns at 90,000-130,000 btu’s and is much more expensive. Wood burns at 9,000-13,000 btu’s, so quite a bit of difference. Here’s another fact I did not know, if coal gets wet it can become combustible. That’s why building a coal crib inside after I move the wood today. Anyone want to come and help me?

Now that’s all folks. Take care and have a safe and blessed day!!
