Miss M and I were checking out a new site the other day called Maya’s Mom. It’s a new social network targeted at parents (that’d be me!). For a new site, it’s got quite a lot of good stuff in it already, I’m looking forward to watching it grow (side note: I’ve been in web development for about 12 years now, and I was very impressed with the user interface… totally easy to wade in without getting overwhelmed).

Anyway. My girl glommed onto this cute idea — a parent described how they made a mini Christmas tree out of pine cones. It had to be done. We had the pine cones already, and glitter paint, and more glitter, and shiny bits to stick on, and glue to stick the shiny bits.

The picture doesn’t do our creations justice. They are totally sparkly, and wonderful.
