With all of the disaster and tragedy that has happened this year, I haven’t been in much of a Christmas-y mood. For Kaylee’s sake, I am really trying to be more festive. Kenny and I are planning to take her to see Santa at Macy’s and the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree this weekend. We have so much on our minds but cannot forget to celebrate the positive things like our beautiful little family. So in an effort to be a little more festive, I turned to my craft. I made this cute little crochet snowflake clip for my princess to wear for Christmas. Here is how I did it:
