Well, it has taken a little longer than I would have liked but I am THRILLED to tell you that I have found my Christmas Spirit! I was starting to worry that I was going to have that Bah Humbug look on my face in ALL our family photos this year! SO....it happened last night while I was working on my teacher's gifts. I'm not sure if you remember my little crush from the summer. He is strong, sleek and when he goes 'Choo-choo' I just melt.....yes, my summer crush was Kaiser Craft's Train Tidy. There was something about that little project that just made me happy. I decided that the school needed to have one in both the Toddler and Casa rooms to store things like crayons or pencils, etc. I packed the cars with baked goods and Eve's Chocolate dipped licorice (my fav). I then placed MY CRUSH on a cotton lined cardboard box (thanks to a brilliant idea from my Aunt Di).
The moment I wrapped the whole thing in the white snowflake cello....IT HAPPENED! I literally giggled aloud and was SO pleased with my special gift for the teachers! It made me SO happy. Call me a nerd (don't worry, I do all the time) but I am a paper nerd WITH Christmas spirit! I hope YOU find your Christmas spirit too.....♥
