Ornament Lab

This afternoon, T attended an ornament lab...where he had the opportunity to make an ornament, dress up as a shepherd, and listen to an author read a Christmas book she wrote.

Eileen M. Berry read her book, Benjamin's Sling.

It is the story of the nativity through the eyes of a shepherd boy.

Afterward, T was given a copy of the book, personalized and signed by the author!

The store was decorated festively.

This year, the attendees were given a choice of three ornaments to make:

a star

the holy family

a lamb

Without hesitation, T chose to make the lamb.  This is the sample ornament.

Here is T, hard at work.

T did a terrific job making his lamb ornament.

He was happy with his handiwork...although, it is a little difficult to tell by his expression!

He also dressed up as a shepherd boy.

This is the third year T has attended the ornament lab.  It seems to get better every year!  I so appreciate the time and effort that goes into creating what becomes a memorable experience for T.
