One year, my sister and I made salt dough ornaments with our mom. Homemade snowmen, Christmas trees, stars and candy canes adorned our tree that year. Those that survived two small children and a mischievous cat became a part of our tree decor for years to come. It’s one of my best childhood holiday memories.
