I can't believe Christmas is only 2 weeks away!!
I have so many things to do and I'm trying to be proactive getting a few things done every day. I put together gifts for the kids elementary school teachers today.
Tupperware is so easy for me because I can get it for a good price and everybody thinks I spent tons of money on them. I used these cute little microwave soup mugs and added a can of soup. What teacher doesn't occasionally take soup for lunch? Especially in this crazy cold weather!
For the kids' friends, I bought a bunch of the 6-packs of holiday themed lip gloss. They were cheap with all my discounts, less than 50 cents for each tube. I added a little candy cane and tied them up with some ribbon. For the boys we did the same thing with hot chocolate and candy canes. They are not much, but my kids are always so excited when their friends remember them and they bring home something as simple as a candy cane.
We love Christmas at my house! It has always been a time of remembering those we love. My brother asked me once how can I afford to give gifts to everyone. I told him that the money we set aside for Christmas is sometimes big and sometimes rather small. And like a pie, we just cut it into pieces and even if we can only give a tiny bite, at least we were able to share.
I love the sharing part of Christmas. I love making people happy and I am so grateful for the good people around me. Thank you for being my blog friends!
I hope you all have much joy and love this holiday season.
