Our Family Village That We Made....

A wonderful FAMILY project...
This had to be one of the greatest Christmas projects that our family did together! My husband took some scrap wood in various sizes and cut them to resemble houses. I took them, sanded all of them really well and then primed them for our family gathering.
Having all of our favorite color paints ready, we came in and talked with the kids about what they might like to do one day when they were older. From there, they started painting.
Chase wanted to own an Outdoors Adventure Shoppe! He is 24 and he still does!!
Whitney wanted to be a school teacher! She is 20 and still desires to teach in some way!
We also painted the house we were living in, the store we own now and other various places that were important to us!
The house project all began from one little house a friend gave me a year or two before! It is the one that says Merry Christmas! I hope she remembers that she gave it to me! (EP)
Oh , and the ironing board~ It makes a great surface for any type of village!!!

Great family time and what a memory to make with the kids. I bet this is one of your favorite things to put out at Christmas.

Hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving~
