Little Drummer Girl - Ornament

For a few seconds I thought I was behind a day.

 Click image to start at day 1.

But luckily, I'm more on top of things than I thought.

Some things, anyway.

On to . . .

 December 13th:  Toy Drum Ornament

My husband made these (surprised?) out of two different size of dowels.  I then painted them and glued on yarn.

A simple toy drum.

To remind me when kids wanted simple things for Christmas, and were grateful for them.

Much different from my daughters wish lists.

1.  Every Disney Princess doll ever made.
2.  A tablet.
3.  A guitar.
4.  A motorized princess car like the neigbors have.
5.  A trampoline.
6.  A dog.
7.  A new bed.
8.  A new house (oh, I think that was actually on my list)
9.  A wii.
10.  A really big TV like my friend has.

Such unrealistic expectations.

But the drum.  That reminds me of children "way back when" their wish list was reasonable. 


So I put a reminder on my tree. 

Wishful thinking.
