Our Christmas was simple, like it always is, but we had chosen to make homemade gifts this year for our family, and if we bought something, we worked hard to buy from small local stores. I found that some of the local stores had great customer service and a couple….not so much.
Everyone got involved! The house was bustling after catching up after basketball with making gifts after we finally got ideas for them!
T. made a homemade game for part of his gift.
It was laminated, which took a bit of work and the lady at the copy shop worked and worked and worked on it. I bought little train markers and dice at the local Imagination Station store, and made up the game on a board I downloaded.
We read the Christmas story and all participated with sound effects, which was very fun!
The children enjoyed seeing how everyone liked their gifts and all the creative people we have!
Thankfully my mom could be there for gifts, but had to leave quickly to go and deliver a very special little baby. It was a very fast paced and enjoyable Christmas. We missed a lot of family members who could not be here, but the homemade raviolis were amazing!
