I always try to buy a bunch of the wooden paintable ornaments that Jo Ann's sells after Christmas. They are really cheap to start, only 1.19, so when they are trying to clear them out they are just pennies. The kids and their friends, Emmy and Lyndi, love to paint them so I just let them have at it. Most have a place in the middle for a photo. They are among my favorite ornaments on our tree from year to year!
