Road Blocks and Christmas Tips

Speaking of financial road blocks earlier. Road block "mom I need a scientific calculator for geometry", road block "composition notebook for my block classes", road block "glue sticks", road block "my cleats are to small my toes are touching the end". Me speaking to them "Yer killing me Smalls". We got all items needed for school. I have kept Wes' cleats each year, we only get one season out of them. So it was such a blessing to go out to the garage and find a pair of Wes' that would fit Ryan.

As for Christmas, which I LOVE. This will be the second year we only buy gifts for the boys. Don't gasp, it's easier than you think. We used to buy gifts for everyone, family, friends, co-workers and bosses. Now I knit presents presents with yarn I already have. I baked cookies, breads etc. for my friends and co-workers who are local. This year I think I am going to make ornaments from Christmas cards that I kept from years past. If you know of any good ones, let me know. We also give "services", mowing the yard for grandpa, babysitting for a friend. There are endless possibilities and are usually much appreciated. If you are trying to save money or the thought of the holidays makes your cringe try some homemade things. Cheers!

  1. Got to love a "Sandlot" quote. And thanks for the great gift giving ideas that actually have personal thought and love going into each one. It made me excited for Christmas!
