Beaded Ornaments and Pine Tree Pizza

We made two beaded ornaments today.  The first is a candy cane.  For this one Eva sorted out red and white beads from our bead bucket and slid them on a pipe cleaner.
When she filled the whole thing, I bent it like a candy cane.  The other ornament she made was a tree.  I cut various lengths of green pipe cleaner and twisted them onto a brown one and then Eva added beads for ornaments.
I think they look great on our tree!
For dinner tonight Eva had a pine tree pizza.  I cut the tree shape out of a whole wheat tortilla and topped it with homemade spinach pesto.  Then Eva added snow (mozzarella), garland (onions) and ornaments (sliced cherry tomatoes).
Tasty and festive!
