Hoosier flakiness

For many years now, part of our Christmas preparation each year has included cutting out paper snowflakes to tape up in the windows.

It's always been a joy to me to see how the size, quantity and style of the flakes changes with the age and dexterity of the manufacturer. Sadly, the originator of this tradition at Chez Hoosier has outgrown the activity (how did she do that when her mother has not?), but we were fortunate to have an understudy. At this point he's 11, so the flakes are beginning to look pretty fancy again.

This version comes from a snowflake site that Mark showed me. If you're looking for seasonal procrastination tools, it's a fun little time-waster.

I trust your cutouts are all six-sided, are they not?

The eight-sided ones just grate on me. But perhaps I am too rigid with this lovely activity.

God did NOT create two snowflakes alike but they are all clearly snowflakes. I find that amazing.
