Thanks to Pen Pals & Picture Books, she received the book "Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas," written by Jane O'Conner and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser and a themed craft project to go with it!
After reading the story, Elly knew exactly what to do. "Can I make a tree topper just like Fancy Nancy?" "Of course," was my reply!
And so she used the materials in the package and some from our craft closet to create her tree topper.
Let me just say that I think it is "Splendiferous!" Although Martha Stewart would like this last post, I am sure she would cringe at the sight of our tree at the moment. We even stuck unopened Christmas Cards in between branches so we wouldn't lose them. =) Makes me happy just looking at it!
