First Christmas with Homemade Ornaments

As fun little project, we made our own Christmas tree ornaments using applesauce, cinnamon, and some super-cute cookie cutters we got for our wedding. A word of caution – cinnamon can actually burn your skin. Curly spent a good 45 minutes with a very red face (think bad sunburn). She had rested her face on her hand for a second or two and ended up with a hand print on her cheek. Washing her face to remove the cinnamon actually ended up spreading it all over her face, which wasn’t exactly what she intended. But after a shower, lots of Noxema, and more water, the rash faded and she was her normal cute self again.
