Christmas is coming
The goose is getting fat
Did anyone else learn that song as a kid? I don't really know what it means - I don't eat goose.. maybe I would understand better if Christmas goose were a part of our Christmas tradition.
Nonetheless, my wallet is NOT getting fat.
Last year we decided to get 1 gift for each of the boys for Christmas. I think we might do the same this year. As I begin to think about all the people I would like to get gifts for, I am turning to Pintrest. The truth is, I love looking at everyone else's great ideas on there. I feel empowered to create when I look at all the options for making cool things!
I think this year is going to be a Pintrest Christmas for our family with things like:
homemade apple pie filling, canned and prettied
a hand stitched mermaid tail
handmade ornaments created by toddlers
I'm still in search of great ideas for so many family members - for instance, what do you give an 8 year old boy? I don't think he's interested in the costumes. What can I make for Mr. Crum that leaves him feeling appreciated and loved (even though he really wants an e-reader)?
I've already started some of our Christmas projects - I look forward to working on many more over the next month and a half!
What are you doing for Christmas gifts? Are you making anything special? Do you have Christmas traditions surrounding "making" something?
